My university is on the quarter system, and so we’re on our third week of the new quarter currently. Because of how my classes are right now, I have a very structured schedule. Tuesdays and Thursdays I leave the house at 7 and don’t get home until about 7, by which time I’m HUNGRY! Mondays and Fridays I have class in the morning and then go out to the barn to ride. Friday nights, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday I work. At night I’m studying, writing papers, etc. I have some off time between classes, but I’m stuck on campus with no storage.
I don’t know where to fit in workouts anymore! This isn’t really even about fitness, it’s about my sanity… I miss running or just working out in general. But I feel like I’m always tired or need to eat, or just don’t have a break.
So how do you make time when working out seems impossible? When waking up a half an hour early just doesn’t work?

Can you have a snack or something and work out after your classes and eat dinner later? Personally, I don’t even get to the gym until 6 most nights, and I don’t get home until after 7. We usually don’t eat until around 8:30.
Nights I have class, sometimes I try to hit the gym @ 8:30 and then we don’t even eat until like 9:30.
I also squeeze in at-home workouts in the morning.
As for being stuck on campus, could you carry a gym bag with your books and clothes and squeeze in a workout in between classes?

What about working out a little bit after dinner? My favorite time to work out is around 8:30 or 9:00 – it’s always when I get the urge to work out!

I think packing a snack and going for a run right after class even before you have dinner is the best option if you want longer workouts. I do this on a regular basis, and try to cook very large meals when I cook, so that we can heat up the leftovers for dinne most of the time, so right when we come home from the workout, we eat (no cooking first) – I cook later…
Otherwise, for the fitness and if you really have no time at all, look into Tabata trainings… Knowing this, there is really no good reason not to exercise, ever again!
