02/29/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

 Exercise excuses have destroyed the best-made New Year’s Resolutions and workout commitments.  Here is the way to turn any excuse around to convince yourself to stick with your exercises plan.

-“I just can’t find the time in my schedule for workout.”  Change to; I can’t afford not to make the time, in terms of my long-term health.  Including, increased health care costs due to weight issues, decreased productivity due to low energy, and increased moodiness rather than higher spirits and attitude from feeling better.

-“I’m too tired after my never-ending day to work out,” will be replaced by “My energy is up from the rush of endorphins (like chocolate gives).

-“I can’t afford a gym membership or classes,” needs to be replaced by action.  Buy a DVD that you can utilize at home at a lower cost.  Use a gym opportunity at your neighborhood YMCS, church, or high school organization.  Walking outside works most months of the year, and there is always mall-walking.

-“My workout buddy cancelled so I’m going to sleep in.”  Is your workout to benefit you or for someone else?  Workout anyway.

-“I’m bored with workout.”  There are so many possibilities for different types of exercises from tae-Bo, Zumba, Pure Barre, Yoga-laties, or belly dancing!  Don’t limit your opportunities, and achieve results that motivate you.

Everyone can come up with a creative reason NOT to exercise, but be your best advocate!
