The excuse I'm dropping: I don't have time. 10 minutes is enough to make a difference and I can find that.

I finished the Disney Marathon on Sunday. It took just over 7 hours, an hour of which was character stops and riding Expedition Everest. It was 85* and 80% humidity. Over 5400 people were swept, some people just quit at mile 5 or so, because of the heat (you still get your medal, you don't have to finish!) I powered through, and finished!

Yes, sorry, it is like the top of a pushup, and you hold it for as long as you can. I can hold one for 4 minutes on a great day, 2ish on a good day, and about 90 seconds on all the other ones.

Since Kim is talking about abs, I'm assuming she means plank position. We do those in my class too. It's good for the core.

My favorite excuse? I'm too sore to go to the gym tonight. emoticon

I almost used that one yesterday. I finally went back to my CKO Kickboxing class on Monday since Hurricane Sandy so needless to say my body was telling me on Tuesday and Wednesday "Seriously?!" But I had set a goal to get back to going 3 times a week because before I know it, it will be July and time to take my next Warrior Dash race and I want to improve my time.

Great job to the others who posted! emoticon

Awesome!!!!
I will be in Disney from Thursday to Monday! I will be walking tons, eating as well as possible, and running a 5K and a Marathon. Hoping for some weight loss instead of weight gain!

Excuse. its so easy to find them everywhere. I was going to start back at the gym this morning, but decided extra sleep was more important. Then I logged on and saw this thread, this was great encouragement for me. I will go to the gym, even if its just to walk on the treadmill right after work, Thanks for posting this.

I havent gotten back to Zumba or walking. Still fighting this dumb cold - but that should be almost done.


I think Im going to try to just give up excuses and talk myself into doing what Im supposed to instead of talking myself out of it. emoticon

My excuse is a SERIOUS deception.

I got to the point of such Super Cardio that I have forgotten that walking one mile is incredibly valuable. So if I didn't go to a class or jump on the Elliptical I was not doing anything - BAD ME!!

I must start new for the new year and begin like a normal person and see where it grows to. That is not to say that I am giving up ZUMBA - No Way!!!

Well I decided to zap excuses out of my new year......................... I have an entire library of them. Some used often - some only used for emergency situations and some old reliables.

Right now I have the end of a bad head cold. So my excuse for not walking is ---- no energy with the cold and dont want to get a relapse. I can only use this excuse for today ------------ and then Im retiring it - not to be used again for the 13 week challenge.

what excuse will you use once and them retire?
