    so i'm hoping to welcome the new year with lots of change in my life. from starting realjock's 12-week muscle building workout plan to planning my study abroad in brazil, 2008 will be an exciting year for me.

    however, knowing that my schedule will be the same (if not more hectic) next year, if i don't figure out how to deal with it now i'll probably be resolving to make the same changes in 2009.

    with that said, i just wanted to see how some of yall dealt with living busy lives yet still keeping up with your fitness goals. whether you're in school like me or a working professional, you know the issues that come about when trying to stick with a certain nutritional/fitness plan.

    i really want, and know i have to, pair the muscle building plan with a good nutrition/supplement plan and hopefully, the tips that realjock is working on getting out to us will help. regardless, i'd like to hear what tips you have to offer.

    thx guys and happy new year!

    Well, I am a busy college student too (A&M).

    I don't know what advice I could give you. But what I find is I'm never too busy to exercise. I make it one of the things that keeps me busy.

    That's what I do. I am a very busy professional, but I decided this past year that NOTHING was going to take precedence over my getting in shape. When I decide I need to hit the gym, I go, and everything has to wait. Of course, my cellphone is close by, just in case.icon_biggrin.gif

    Okay, I am just going to be a dick here.

    If you look for excuses to not follow a workout schedule and eat right you will find them. At this point it looks like you are off to a rockin' start with your excuse finding.

    My work requires a lot of travel. I spent about a quarter of 2007 living out of hotel rooms around the world. Never did I just say "screw it" I am to busy/tired/whatever to work out. Never did I decide that I just couldn't find healthy food.

    You said in your post that you were hoping to welcome the new year with lots of change in your life. Well, hope isn't a solid workout plan and hope isn't a solid diet.

    I get it.

    I'm never bored and the time I spend on RJ is probably one of the few periods of the day when I'm not actively doing something. My life is hectic but fulfilling. I've a strong feeling that 2008 is going to be another turning point in my life.

    I also plan on starting the 12 week muscle building program here in just over a week from now (as I want to finish the current cycle I'm on.)
