Exercise excuses

Sunday, February 16, 2014

I am full of excuses, despite the fact that I posted some months ago a empowering quote to remind me what excuses are all about: "A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse."-Stephan Dolley Jr.
So what are some excellent excuses I have found? Hmmmm....okay I will share a few.
Excuse: (1) I was in an accident 4 years ago, and now I have arthritis and have been put on disability.
ExcuseBuster: Fact is, and I am certain of it, exercising will help that arthritis, especially if I enroll in that very affordable arthritis water therapy class just a few blocks from my house.
Excuse (2): My adoptive daughter with multiple special needs keeps me from having time.
ExcuseBuster: Because I have an adoptive daughter with multiple special needs, I actually need to find time to excercise. Excercising will give me more stamina and perhaps more patience (?) to deal with her needs.
Excuse (3): Don't have the money for exercise.
ExcuseBuster: Don't need money. There is an elliptical and recumbent bike in the upstairs extra room. Plus, we have a Wii Fit.
Excuse(4): It is too cold, icy and snowy outside.
ExcuseBuster: See excuse buster #3.

So, there really is no excuse, don;t you see. And the best time to get off my butt and exercise is early in the morning. Or now. Now would be good.
Posting and getting to it.
