Excuses or Commitments, you get to choose…
Life is driven by our excuses or our commitments. What’s driving you?
Once again my facebook friends have helped me write a blog. There were over 50 responses for “best excuse for not working out.”
(For the full thread click HERE).
- Weights are heavy
- Having to participate in the capitalist conspiracy…
- Hungry and need a beer (Tulane friend)
- Need to stay home and read Doug Grady’s facebook posts (valid)
- Bourbon st (another Tulane friend)
- I’m sexy enough
- I have to wash my hair
- These cookies won’t eat themselves
- Exhausted from too much sex (yet another Tulane friend)
- Does walking to a bar count? (surprisingly, not a Tulane friend)
Others were a bit more serious:
- Chronic pain and fatigue
- Cartilage damage to both knees, torn rotator cuff, torn pectoralis, tendonitis in bicep
- I’m embarrassed because I’m out of shape, but if I don’t go I’ll never get better
- Exercise induced nausea (apparently this is a real thing)
- Broken toe
What’s your best excuse? You may call it a reason or a condition. But is it really? Given each scenario above, is it still possible to exercise physically? Here is one general definition of exercise:
ex·er·ciseˈeksərˌsīz/nounexercise; plural noun: exercises
- activity requiring physical effort, carried out especially to sustain or improve health and fitness.“exercise improves your heart and lung power”
synonyms: physical activity, a workout, working out
Given the above definition of exercise, there is almost always something you can do. Something is usually better than nothing.
Life is driven by your excuses or commitments. Either is a choice. Choose powerfully.
