The Time/Energy Paradox
by Jimmy Hays Nelson
Tell me if this sounds familiar. Your responsibilities seem to keep adding up: school, work, spouse, kids, etc. You know your ever-growing stress level causes you to eat more, make poor food choices, sleep less, and ultimately deteriorating your health. You know you need to workout. You keep hearing how people who workout have more energy and lower stress levels. It sounds awesome in a perfect world, but you barely have enough energy to get through a day as it is, and that is with the help of 3 cups of coffee and 2 red bulls just to eek by. Does this sound like you or anyone you know?
So where do you start. You don’t have enough energy to workout, but you are told IF you workout you will have more energy.
Welcome to the American TIme/Energy Paradox.
GOOD NEWS: All of us that have started a fitness program or have a successful weight loss story faced this same dilemma. So you aren’t the first person to face this problem, and you certainly aren’t alone!
So what did these amazing success stories do? Did they find some magic potion or formula that was their own personal Popeye spinach? Well…. Yes and no. True they didn’t find a Pac Man power pellet that gave them immediate unlimited energy. (Most people are trying to find that in energy drinks and caffeine, only to be punched in the face with the inevitable crash that comes afterwards) But they did find a few simple steps that started the transformation to more energy, and believe it or not more time.
Take a look at your schedule. Most everyone feels like every waking minute of their day is accounted for. But I found when I really sat down and honestly examined my schedule there were hidden wasted minutes to be found. Maybe its staying up later than we should to watch our favorite TV show, or the late night hours that slip by while surfing the web. Regardless of what it is most people can find hidden time. Anywhere from 10 minutes to sometimes HOURS when they are all added up. So say you nit pick your schedule and all you can find is 10 minutes. How are 10 minutes going to give me more energy? Well at first, maybe you don’t find a new surge of energy because of 10 minutes, but you start using that time to do some kind of activity. Maybe it is just a morning walk around the block, a few yoga moves, or even Tony Horton’s Ten Minute Trainer Program that is specifically designed for people on the go.
Maybe you blame your poor food choices on your lack of time. No time to cook because of your busy schedule, so logically the only option is the drive thru…right? WRONG! I challenge you next time you go get fast food to time the entire process. Whether that is from the time you leave work on your lunch break, or even from just the moment you pull in to get in line. I bet you find out this ‘food’ isn’t as FAST as advertised. What if I could show you how in 1 hour on Sunday I prep my food for the entire week and eliminated my ‘Fast Food Time’ excuse? As your free Beachbody Coach, I’m happy to share nuggets like that.
Another solution to the Food vs Time dilemma that has played a huge role in me keeping off 100 pounds, as well as made a huge impact on my busy family. (Wife is supports 7 VPs, brother works crazy hours for the TSA, Dad and Step Mom are on-the-go Real Estate Agents) That solution is Shakeology. All of us made the commitment to use Shakeology on a consistent on-going basis. It is a fast, simple solution to fill the holes we all have in our nutrition. My cravings for sweets and sodas are gone. My Dad lost 30 pounds and greatly reduced his blood pressure medication. My brother saves money using Shakeology versus spending $5-$10 a day on the go for lunch. And my wife says it gives her the energy to support 7 highly demanding Vice Presidents & curbs her cravings for ‘Stress Chocolate’!
I don’t know if these solutions will work for you, but that have had seriously sustainable effects on my family and me. Here at NELSONGY FITNESS we are about results, and results come from eliminating excuses.
