You’ve decided to prioritise health and fitness goals. You’ve set an achievable goal. A goal that you can expect to get to even when life deals an occasional two of spades*.

Provided you’re willing to make a few sacrifices and embrace consistency and occasional hard work.

Let’s say your goal is to increase your cardiovascular fitness. You could do a moderate pace >30-minute walk two or three times a week. Or, if you already have a decent base level of fitness, aim for one or two short, higher-intensity interval workouts.

Want to get stronger? Two to three progressive 30-45 minute strength workouts a week it is. Or four 20-minute workouts. Or five 15-minute workouts.

You get the idea. Pick whatever works for your schedule. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Because you’ll likely have to adjust your approach on the fly when life deals cards that suck.

*I thought I’d come up with something original (for once!). But after a quick search, I now know that two of spades has Tarot card meaning. Which, of course, is as deep into the BS zone as one can get. But let’s ignore that for now.
