    This is great advice for this stage of my life. But I am wondering how I am going to fit in exercise once I have kids. It's hard enough now with a full-time job, a two hour commute, and a house to take care of.
  • Stopped reading mid-article and went for a walk!!
  • Great Article! It defines what I go through on a DAILY basis fighting my battle with myself. Thank You!
  • I use these excuses because after reading this it just hit me I'm just LAZY!
  • These excuses are so true!!
  • Fantastic list! We should all have this available somewhere we can easily see it.
  • Way to hit the nail on the head, especially with the "I don't have time" excuse. I really believe you have time for whatever your real priorities are, and if you make fitness a real priority, you WILL find time!

    Renting DVDs from the local library is a great idea! And the truth is, the nobody-pays-attention-anyway mindset is correct, for the most part. However, if you're overweight and at the gym, and I've noticed you, it's not because I'm judging you, it's because I'm mentally cheering you on.

    To save money, you can just go for a walk or rent fitness DVDs at your local public library. :)
  • I used to be intimidated about going to the gym, but I realized that half the people looked the way I want to look, and half the people look the way I do now! The 'no one pays attention to you anyway' mindset is dead on. I do this for me, and I compete with me, and if you're doing the same thing in the same place, the more the merrier.

    While it *might* be safe to watch TV while on a treadmill, I do not believe this is true if you are lifting weights. In order to have proper form and to lift safely, even if it is a light weight, you need full concentration. The exception is if you are watching a workout video and following along.

    One of the best articles I've read thus far. Sad to admit but I am an excuse maker this article makes me accountable! I am printing this and keeping it with me.
