So by the time I fell back to sleep time didn't allow for a workout. No sweat, because the BFL program allows for a free day. Ideally you're "supposed" to workout Monday through Saturday and take your free day on Sunday, however with a life, I find it better to tweak my free day in to two different days.
A free day involves two things:
- No exercise
- No diet (eat whatever you want)
So if one of those things are coming up I'll schedule that day to be my free day from eating. So, as you can see, I try to take my free day from eating and exercising all in one. Yet quite often I find it better to split it up. One day is free from exercise, and another day free from diet.
Some people might frown on this, yet it works for my life great. This is especially important because I normally work days Monday and Tuesday, so I do my Monday workout on Sunday and take Monday off from working out. This way I have quality time with the family after work Monday and before bed.
However, I like to take my free diet day on the weekends when something is going on, like football day during the NFL season.
So you see, it's better to tweak your workout program than to not do one at all. When it comes to keeping your body in shape there are no excuses...
- even if you have asthma
- even if you're married with children
- even if you work too much
- even if....
