This week one of the tasks in the Harry Potter weekly challenge is to blog about an excuse you tell yourself that gets in the way of weight loss/health plan or an obstacle I deliberately don't fight...
My excuse/obstacle is TIME. Luckily I don't use it often, but it's so incredibly stupid because I am fortunate to have a VERY hands on husband who is very supportive of my exercise needs/want and gets home at a decent time every day.
But my excuses on any given day are as follows:
I only have 30 minutes to work out and I wanted to do a longer workout.
I can't exercise after 6 PM or I am up all night (this one is true but that just means I have to make more of an effort to get in the exercise before 6 PM, lol).
I already walked 3,4,5,6, etc. miles today, I don't NEED to do extra.
I have time to exercise but not sure if I can fit the time in for a shower afterwards so I just won't do anything.
I only get so much time for me - do I really want to spend it exercising or do I want to do (fill in blank)?
I know I can fight these obstacles if I truly try, as I can come up with 10 solutions for each as I type this...but it is making the effort to fight them that's hard, lol.
