This was a great article.
I have all the excuses in the world to not exercise: three kids with school/sports activities every night, a job, volunteer engagements. I schedule 4 days a week for running. They are an appointment. If it's raining, or I'm feeling tired, etc when I am ready to head out the door, I still head out the door. That is my allotted time to exercise, and I don't feel bad about making my exercise a priority! It always makes me a better wife, mother, and friend.
I have a good friend in the same situation. We are running partners, but we are also good friends. While we prefer to run together, we also trade off watching each other's kids so we can get the run in for the day. It's all about priorities when you play the "excuses" game.
