For most people, weight loss is 80% nutrition, and just 20% exercise. You have to eat anyway, so losing weight doesn't have to take a lot of time.
You don't have to commit huge amount of time to get the benefits of exercise. 30 minutes 3 times per week will yield significant health and fitness benefits. And you can break that 30 minutes up into 10 minute segments if that suits your schedule better. So when you take a 'concentration break' or stop for lunch, get in 10 minutes of exercise.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Exercise begets energy.
I also agree with muledoggie - there is NO such thing as no time, because there is always someone busier who makes time to work out, so why can't you?

I read a saying on SP once that I've adopted for myself: People busier than me make time for workouts!

I already got the ok from him to do light exercise (walking, other light activity) I'm just unsure if I should push myself to get up earlier and do it then(hoping to end up not being so tired, if it is just that I need to get used to being up early or what not) or if it doesn't matter in the long run if i do it in the afternoon. Thanks for your thoughts :) Take care Tracy

You may want to contact your doctor just to make sure you are cleared to do this type of exercise, before you start a exercise routine. When it comes to medical conditions, this is something our experts and members are unable to offer advice on.

Hello, How is everyone? I'm doing alright. Okay all, I need some advice. This could get a bit lengthy but bear with me please. I am 27, I have 2 kids, a husband, and I am in university. I am trying to figure out the best time to exercise ( as I will be doing it from home in the living room "Your Shape Fitness" and the lovely Jillian Michaels). Now my day consists of getting up usually 7:15 to get my kids up, and my oldest to school, then in the afternoons I do my school work. I pictk up my daughter, and my husband comes home at 5. The only real time I can see that I would have to exercise would be getting up earlier, or cutting into my study time, b/c I don't have a seperate are for my workouts. Any suggestions as to how I can plan my schedule? Also, I have PPCM (heart failure) and lately I have been feeling like I could sleep all the time. I am wondering is that from not exercising regularly and eating properly and will it subside if I get up earlier? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've got about 20 lbs to lose, I lost 40 a few years ago, but I would like to finish it this time. Thanks so much! Cheers Tracy
