We all have busy schedules...and, let's face it, sometimes you have a day where you don't have the time, energy or fitness level to exercise 30 minutes at a time.
Speaking for myself, if I feel I HAVE to do 30 minutes at one shot, and I don't have time or energy...I used to not do anything. But if I tell myself that I have 10 minutes and have the energy for a 10 minute walk, I'll do that...and often that turns into more. And even if it doesn't, a 10 minute walk or 10 minutes of strength training is better than sitting on my duff bummed out that I don't have time or energy for 30 minutes of exercise.
My only gripe about this article is that it doesn't talk about or show modifications for the exercises to suit your fitness level or any injury issues you may have (e.g., I have a bad back and often have to modify exercises)
Say it... shout it... believe it... "I AM GOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!"...then DO IT!
