Making Time For Fitness On A Busy Schedule

I look forward to going to the gym to release, refresh and renew, because my fitness routine is an integral part of my self-care. As a busy professional who enjoys working out, one of the most common questions I get from friends and family alike is, "How do you find time to go to the gym?" or "How do you fit gym time into your busy schedule?'

I have made so much progress since starting my fitness journey that it's difficult for me to even think about turning back now.  Starting my day with a morning workout helps me fit the gym in my schedule and keeps me going consistently. For busy professionals, working out everyday may not be feasible. For example, I can only go to the gym three times a week so I did some research and created a workout routine that includes one upper-body workout out day, one lower-body workout day (or leg day) and one full-body workout day. Most of my workouts consist of compound exercises like squats, bench presses and dead lifts. These exercises work many muscle groups at once so you can get a greater amount of work done in a shorter amount of time. In sum, I fit the gym in my schedule by: going in the mornings; working out three times a week; and focusing on compound exercises. 

Nothing feels as good as a great workout!

To ensure I am getting the most out of my workouts while building stronger, leaner muscle means that I aim to consume the right amount of protein. Following a workout, your body needs 30g of protein to recover. Thus, I often treat myself to a tasty post-workout recovery smoothie made with EAS 100% Whey Protein Powder.  Whey protein is fast digesting and perfect after a workout to replenish and start rebuilding muscle. Plus EAS 100% Whey Protein Powder has no fillers and no added sugar. 

My tasty protein smoothie is easy to make, which is perfect for those of us with a busy schedule. 

1. First you begin by putting all the following ingredients into a blender.

  • Two Scoops of EAS 100% Whey Protein Powder 
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • A handful of Baby Spinach
  • 1-2 of your favorite fruit
  • A few cubes of ice
2. Blend Together

3. Serve and Enjoy!

I purchased my Jar of EAS 100% Whey Protein in the Pharmacy Department at Walmart.  You can also order it online at If you use Ibotta, you can save $3.00 when you purchase it.

 How do you or how do you plan to fit fitness into your busy schedule?


  1. Thanks so much for posting I've been looking for a protein powder to add to my morning smoothies!

  2. Fitness is just so ingrained into my daily life I make it a priority. I don't usually have issues fitting it in no matter how busy I get! Sometimes stuff happens but for the most part it happens

  3. I am very active and make time to enjoy some kind of fitness at least once a day... usually more! Love spinach in my smoothies too!

  4. I'm all about multitasking and getting the best bang for my buck with exercises that work multiple muscles at a time. Or, putting little man in his stroller and taking him for a walk is beneficial to us both.

  5. I love EAS but I can't do the powder...I feel like it doesn't blend right. So I buy the premade shakes...this does sound like a good recipe though!

  6. I am still struggling to commit to using protein powder, there are so many options out there I never know what to buy. Glad to see it's working well for you. And it's so true that balancing the gym with work takes a lot of balance!

  7. It can be difficult to fit exercise into a busy schedule. I like the idea of focusing on compound exercises so you don't have to workout as often!

  9. There is no reason that individuals cannot find a fitness center that suits them. The cost of a fitness program is generally not a problem because many employers provide free gym or fitness center memberships to their employees in order to reduce health insurance expenses and time lost on account of illnesses and injuries.
