Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."
~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Many of us live busy, busy lives these days.   When first I started this plan in October 2001, I was working full time as a nurse, coaching for 25 hours a week(some Saturdays) my daughter was in High School and living at home which meant I had to also include the"family" thing.
So how was I ever going to find the TIME to eat six times a day, and exercise?
It wasn't easy, but I was determined to lose weight.  I had to plan ahead.  That meant knowing what I was going to eat ahead of time.  Bulk cooking and planning my exercise.
I ended up cooking my on plan meals on Saturdays , so that all I had to do was heat my meals up  when I needed to eat.  I would cook my family a "regular dinner" and I would heat my prepared meal in the microwave. 
I decided that the only time that exercise would work for me was to get up and be at the gym at 5am to workout.  It really does sound worse than it was.  After awhile one gets into a routine and even getting up at 4:30 isn't so bad.
My life is a bit different now.  I have no kids living at home, I work part time(and am loving it)and my husband has been doing an incredible amount of travelling with work.
So this time around, I am again cooking in bulk, but I now go to the gym anywhere from 7 am to 10 am depending on my schedule. Although  sometimes I have to force myself to get into my work out clothes and get to the gym, I keep reminding myself  that it soo much more flexible than it was when I had no choice but to get to the gym at the crack of dawn.
So goals are reached by finding the time .  If it is something you are passionate about, then there is no doubt in my mind you can find the time.  Afterall  aren't you worth the effort. Go now and find the time to eat and live healthy.
