I do the sparkpeople exercises in between classes, since I'm at home between classes usually. I run at night too. It's not ideal, but its the only way to fit it in my schedule. I have early classes so there's no time to get up, run and shower before heading off to class, due to a 20 minute commute
I just want to say that you can do it! Like most people on this thread, I put time into my schedule to workout and I treat it like it's another "class". 3 times a week I start class a little later (10ish) so I tend to go to the gym in the morning before I can get distracted by something else that I need to do that day. Treat your workouts as time that you deserve for working so hard in class and at school. Don't let assignments or professors steal this time away from you. Pretty soon you will get in a regular routine and start to feel great about all the time that you are able to spend for yourself! Good luck with everything girl!
Schedule it. I find that if I stay organized I have time to do everything, including relax! I am a theatre major, and if we're in the middle of putting on a play rehearsals consume my nights, so I plan to work out in the mornings. Organization is key.
Honestly, the best way to tackle it is to treat it like an assignment. Schedule a time to do it, and just get it done. Write it on your to-do list, and make sure you get it crossed off. Set alarms or calendar events for it on your phone (or computer application, whichever you prefer), too, if you can, so you can't forget.
I'm still working on effectively implementing this strategy, but it's the only one that has actually gotten my butt out and getting things done on time and in order of importance.
It's best to go in the morning I figure. I wake up, go workout and then I'm done with it. All I have to do is monitor my eating. Just get up go, don't even think about. Just roll out of bed and slip on the shoes. I don't. That's what I like to do, my roommate goes to the gym everyday, so when I don't go I really feel crappy extra crappy lol.
I'm so glad I'm not the only one for who senior year had just put pay to everything! I try and take some articles to read on the bike or something but now everything is due I'm going to go for a 20 min swim in the morning or a fast walk and just keeping thinking about june when I can get back to it properly!!! Good luck with everything!
I used to be an avid exerciser and then senior year hit. Between graduate school applications and homework I somehow lost my motivation to hit the gym and now I find it really hard to find the time to go. How do you schedule in or find the time to work out on a regular basis? The weekends are the worst for me, I can't ever manage to get to the gym!
