I go to crossfit two times a week. Making friends in the class that expect to see me there has made me accountable. I know if I miss a class they are going to be asking where I was. Telling them I was too tired would never cut it!
Do it! Build muscle and challenge yourself, and you'll not only be stronger, but you'll lose weight if you're also changing how you eat and doing some walking or interval training here and there. Crossfit is one good source of information, and doing bodyweight exercises is great too!
Just because your short on time doesn't mean it's an excuse to not workout. The new excise fad Crossfit works wonders in about 10 minutes. The idea is to do multiple reps and sets of 2 or 3 excersises that work the whole body as fast as you can. Use a row machine for 250 meters at a fast pace then go into a dumbbell swing for 15 reps. go back and forth for 4 sets.....just an example. If you do the excersises properly you wont be able to do more.
This type of workout is my favorite when I only have 10-15 minutes to workout. It gets the heart rate up and fast, makes you breath heavy, targets the majority of your muscle groups, and you feel it for the next 2 days.
