Apparently, I am a member of the “finding perfect excuses for not getting fit” club. I am not a couch potato, and I am not extremely over-weight, but I could stand to lose a few more pounds and I frequently find myself getting out-of-breath after less-than-strenuous activity. I need to exercise (!!!) but I always seem to have an excuse. Whether it’s the excuse of not wanting to pay for child care to work out a a gym (not to mention the gym membership itself), or not wanting to wake up early enough to beat the kids awake, or the weather….there’s always something stopping me.
And yet I know how much better I feel when I do exercise. So why is it so hard?
There have been several times when I have gotten into a great exercising routine. But inevitably, an illness (either my own or one of the kids) will throw me off my schedule, and I will lose my momentum.
Right now, I can’t imagine fitting it into my day, each day. And once again the “AND YET…” pops into my head. “And yet you would have more energy to get more done during the time that you have each day,” I tell myself. It’s a constant fight I have with myself.
I’m glad I’m not alone. There are other people making excuses just like me. I found an article on www.wellnessdaily.com, a website sponsored by Jenni-O Turkey called Four Common Excuses Not to Get Fit. Which excuse are you using? Or are you doing better than I am and fitting that fitness program in?
I spent some time browsing around www.wellnessdaily.com and found recipes, fitness tips, coupons to print, and tricks for losing weight. It was a wealth of information! I signed up for free by simply connecting with my Facebook account. I am looking forward to having a little buzz in my ear motivating me to exercise. After all, I need to look my best when I teach at the Casual Bloggers Conference in May, right?
(PS–if you are anywhere near Utah, PLEASE consider coming to hear me and other much more interesting bloggers speak and teach!)
