The Myth of No Time to Workout: Why You Should Never Say That Lie Again


CrossFit Duo
If you believe in God, he told us in the book of Ecclesiastes that "there is a time for everything." Then he went on giving examples. Thus, you cannot say you have no time to exercise. If Solomon (author of Ecclesiastes) had time for everything---and he was so busy running a country because he was a king---how can you not have the same?

I sincerely believe God is very busy. But he's not that busy as other people claim to be, because in fact, after creating everything for 6 days, he rested on the seventh. And Hebrews says he's been resting ever since, even today. God has time for everything---even working out. Yeah, I believe God works out regularly and you can even find him in gyms---because he's everywhere. And I know it for a fact that he works out because he joins me in my workouts.

Having no time for workouts is just pure myth. Often, it's a lie to cover up for laziness. People can be hardworking with their jobs or businesses, but most of them are just too lazy to workout. They have lots of excuses and reasons not to. But after they suffer an illness (or when they begin to feel the illness) you see them trying to workout. That's the time they start exercising. But often, it's rather too late. They have suffered a stroke or had to start taking maintenance medicine.

The ideal time to start working out is when you're still free from illness. Preventive workouts are the best!

I read an article somewhere saying folks in Singapore go home very late at night from doing overtime and yet they take time to run or jog before going to bed. I don't know if that's healthy or not, but one thing I see here---they still make time to workout. And you never hear any news about any Singaporean dying because he ran late at night after a stressing overtime work.

But you hear everywhere people dying because they neglected their health, saying they had no time to workout. See?

I'm not saying you stay out late at night and then workout when you get home. I'm saying God has given all of us enough time to get healthy and fit. We just have to get serious and find that time and actually use it for the purpose. Just look at me.

I research and try to write good articles out of what I research. That takes me day and night. Add to that the FB pages I have to manage, the messages and inquiries I have to reply to, the birthday celebrants I have to greet (part of business PR), and the meetings I have to schedule.

Then offline, I need to meet with people, with prospects and clients, and sometimes make my presence felt in conferences and group meetings. I have to expose myself. Then I have to talk with people one-on-one for connections or make a sales presentation now and then. That's not to mention some troubled people who set appointments with me because they need my advice.

Then there's my family---my wife I need to have special intimate moments with, talking, laughing, eating and drinking with (we both love fresh fruit juices). Then there are my kids I need to guide and talk with and laugh with. And most importantly, there's God who I have to have quiet moments with and laugh with. And I need to meditate the bible day and night. And oh, before I forget, I enjoy my time with my wife attending to our organic vegetable garden.

And yet I find time to physically workout. I even teach some guys Filipino martial arts in my spare time. So, how do I manage to workout regularly, and enjoy it, too?

Well, that's my secret. And I share my secrets in my e-book, "My Simple Secrets to Fitness." And I decided to give it away FOR FREE! Not always, though. I will sell it again for Php 200 after a while. So go get your FREE copy now while in a good mood!

You want to know what's inside the e-book? Well, get a review by clicking here. What I particularly recommend reading here is how you can workout regularly even if you say you have no time to exercise, no money to maintain good health and no place to do your workouts because you're mostly at the office.

I got rid of all those obstacles when I was a young man in sales and marketing and was able to keep fit and healthy.

So no one is exempt because God has made it possible for all of us to have time for everything---everything necessary in life, that is. To enjoy more of Choy's Cut articles and make sure you get them regularly, just LIKE US on Facebook by clicking this link. MORE ARTICLES BELOW!

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
