I'm getting better, but I still let other "stuff" be more important than exercise. One of the articles I've read suggested that you think of your exercise time the same as you would think of a meeting with a friend and "don't cancel on yourself".

Just remember all the benefits of any activity are cumulative, so if you only have a few minutes here and there to workout or get in a nice walk, it all adds up!

You make time for it the way you make everything ELSE fit... by making it a priority, something you just have to do, like going to work, making dinner, and all that. If it's a priority, you'll make it happen.

Also make the best of your time. Most of us don't need to spend an hour or two in the gym on a treadmill... even 30 minutes is plenty of time for a fine workout. Heck, even 10 minutes per day is beneficial!

Indeed, but I don't think anyone ever worked out and said, "Man, I wish I hadn't worked out."

Now I've had plenty of times where I felt like crap because I didn't work out.

The hardest part of working out is getting your butt up and doing it!!

finding time to work out in between all the other "stuff" is hard.

Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.
