When I find myself making excuses, I remind myself that I'm a member of the BIDIA club: But I Did It Anyway! This helps to keep me on track, even when I'm feeling less than enthusiastic about the challenges I'm facing that day.

Joining Sam's Club by today (Saturday, July 31) and save 20 off the 40 dollar basic membership price. The regular price is 40 and after paying it a rebate is given in the form of a gift card. Joining Sam's Club for 20 dollars is quite a deal.
I recently joined a local running club. Having payed the annual fee and and stated my commitment to this small group is motivating me to keep going for the runs. Before joining the club, I repeatedly made excuses for not running, since I was not accountable to others.
Choosing a gym that doesn't make me feel like a blob
I visited MANY gyms and health clubs, but always felt intimidated and overwhelmed by the skinny fit people, and well, I'm not. I felt like I would always be judged, and my body image was even worse when I was exercising than when I wasn't. 39 However, I recently joined a YMCA club near me, and the members are all shapes and sizes and ability levels. I feel right at home and workout at my place without feeling judged or uncomfortable. 104
