A lot of us in today’s world have so much on our plate that we don’t even know where to begin. From Family, Work, church, recreational activities, we keep compiling, but unfortunately we still only get 24 hours!

I find that even though fitness is one of the most important aspects to one’s wellbeing we seem to always fit it in WAY down the list. I have heard all the excuses there are, but bottom line I have seen families with 5 children, single working mothers, people with disabilities, and perfectly healthy people that are just dedicated to living a healthier life.

My husband and I always laugh when people come to us and say “I am just not finding enough time”, because bottom line, your health is just not that high on your list of priorities. Somehow that same person is able to keep up with the Kardashians so why not the Gym? ….

I have devised a plan for no excuses.. If you can’t make it to the gym workout at home. I have worked out in 2oo square foot hotel rooms, on the side of the road, in just about every confining/random place you could find, and you know why… because I am committed! I have made my health a priority!  With health being at the top of my list,  I will live longer with my husband. I will be a more active, encouraging, example to my children. I will be a a motivating friend, daughter,trainer, and mentor for others around me because of the choices that I make.

I have an eight year old sister, and tonight she came to me with her workout clothes on, music blasting, and a Workout that she said was “going to kill me” (and I think it did :]). She is making those same choices, and that is the most rewarding experience for me!

I have compiled a list of workouts below, and copied a link of 50 at home workouts for you to not make excuses and in the words of NIKE “JUST DO IT”!!! Don’t start on Monday, start today, Don’t wait for things to heal, Modify, and most importantly DON’T LET YOURSELF OFF THE HOOK with your life!

3 Comments on There Are Just Not Enough Hours in the Day….

  1. Annie 🙂 This is a wonderful post- and you’re completely right. Back in the days before crossfit- i would have come up with the same excuses, and that’s exactly what they would be- EXCUSES! Even now being pregnant, I try my best to never let anything get in the way of my workouts. The occasional back ache certainly can make it hard, but I still do something at home, or modify at the gym. I will live longer and will do what I can to make it happen! Thanks for posting the link, this is fabulous for when we are on the road and visiting family!!!
    sending you much love,
    J
    p.s. love the workout your sister came up with- way to go Ashlee (sp?) 🙂 !!!

  2. Annie you are golden! I am really lovin your blog! keep those recipes coming as well as the workouts! I’ve been working out at home and as much as I miss the people at cfsf, I love evening workouts. When I feel rushed or have a lot on my plate I do put my workouts on the back burner so this just works. I put the girls to bed and bust out a wod. I’ve almost got my garage gym complete (a heater sure would be nice some nights!) and i think I’ve peaked cody’s intrest on crossfit workouts. I’ve also been able to get in a few work outs with my girls. Thanks for sharing your sisters wod, it’s a great way to make fitness fun for kids!

  3. Adorable! Excuses crack me up…..they are like a womanly mustache: existant for some but can easily be plucked away. Pluck away those excuses and 3-2-1-GO!!
