I work an 11 hour shift at work 4 days a week. I live an hour and a half from work so my drive is hectic. I pack my gym bag nightly so that on my way home from work I go to the gym before I go home or change at work and go to the park for a run or bike ride. I don't have any excuse of why I don't workout. I'm always prepared and ready for what the day brings and the drive home after a work out is less stressful, I have accomplished something for myself and I feel good.
If I choose to run at a park I bring my own light weights or resistance bands. I find a place that I can keep them and run a mile and then do an arm workout, next round I run or walk and then do a leg workout.

I always grab an apple and a big lidded glass filled with Crysal Light as I go out the door. It helps me not to stop at a fast food place because the apple keeps me satisfied till my next meal. The drink quenches my thirst instead of getting a soda. 43
Always be prepared for hunger to strike. Bring a low cal snack. 250
Every weekend I buy a large family pack of skinless/boneless chicken breasts, split them in halves and bake or grill the whole lot. Over the week I add it to soups, stews, or sprinkle seasonings to make it a main dish. It saves me SO much time on weekdays and I always have food in a pinch.
Save time, save money buying in bulk, and there's always something to grab & prepare if you're starving.
