Pencil it in ladies!

Hi girls, hope your weekend is going well! Sadly, UT football has put a small damper on life here in Austin (especially around campus), but there’s always the next game, right? Ah, let’s hope so!

This weekend when looking through my planner to figure out everything I must do before Monday, I realized I had (until now) failed to include a big part of how I stay motivated to work out–I pencil it in to my scheduler!

 
I understand how busy we all are in college, so a helpful way to make time to exercise is by clearing an hour (or less or more depending on just how busy your week is) about three times a week for working out or some sort of physical activity. If you can do more, that’s awesome!
 
If you’re like me and you map out your entire week a week in advance (oh come on, I know you do it too! smiley) then try choosing three days where you could get in a workout and pencil it in. If you are super organized, you could even write the time when you’re free to exercise, I know that always helps me to make it happen before I keep saying, “Oh, there’s always later today.”
 
Alright readers, your test of the week is to schedule in a few workouts into your planners & see if that helps to motivate you! Good luck!
 
Work work work,
Olivia
