  • Jason, I was making excuses for why I can't exercise today! Reading your article really helped put things in perspective. It's not that the consistent people (ie you) are magically stronger or don't face the "no" monster. You just manage to overcome it.
    Wow..this article is good. But darnitt..now I can't ignore the workout that awaits me..
    I will go and put my clothes on and head over the apartment gym room.
    Thanks for that!
    A lot

    ***heads to workout wardrobe..determined

    I cannot tell you how much this article was spoke to me! I just had this argument this morning and lost so it gives me so much motivation to work on it a day at a time and remember that we're all having this argument with ourselves everyday. I'll think of this article everytime I wake in the morning! Thanks so much!
  • I do this all the time! Frequently have to pray 4 the motivation to 'just do it' & then once I have i'm away & feeling all the better 4 it. BUT NOT @ 4.45!!!!!!
  • I thought I was the only one using excuses! :) This made me feel better and it was definitely motivating. Thanks!

    What a great motivational writer. I loved this article and the article on running a mile. GREAT JOB! :)
  • An ABSOLUTELY GREAT article!! It was like a good book....I couldn't get through it fast enough, and yet I didn't want to reach the last page!! Thanks a lot!!
  • I loved this article. I was starting to fall off the motivational bandwagon when I read this. Made me reaffirm that I can do this, and I will do this.

    No more excuses for me then!
  • Funny, I had this battle this morning with myself! EXERCISE WON!! I felt so much better after.
  • Great article. When I start making excuses I just tell myself that it doesn't matter. I've already decided to run that day so I might as well knock off all the negative internal dialog. Inside my head it goes something like this, "You KNOW you're going to run 5 miles today so why are you bogging yourself down with all this bull?" And soon the wannabe excuses evaporate and I'm getting my runners high :-)
  • I am battling myself right at this very minute, which is precisely why I was searching motivational articles to read -- this one is great! Here I go...!!!
