Because you were more focused on having to get in the full workout, you missed out on opportunities to get some of a workout done.
Instead, had you gotten up and squeezed in even 5 minutes of your workout (everyone has 5 free minutes), you would have created a streak that you wouldn’t have wanted to break. And that consistency is ultimately what will lead to hitting your fitness goals.
So the next time you hesitate to get your workout in because you feel like “you don’t have the time to fit it all in”, know that doing something (even 5 minutes) is better than waiting until you can do the full workout.
The compounding of those minutes adds up to big change over time!
