No more excuses!

Friday, April 19, 2013

I've had several excuses for not exercising this afternoon.

1) The endless talking heads in Boston. Suspect now captured and en route to the hospital. No longer a valid excuse.

2) Too hot. It's cooling off outside, and I have a fan set up next to the treadmill.

3) No Red Sox game to walk to. True. But I have the live stream of the Port Chester Furthur concert. They're on break now, but the 2nd set'll start in a bit at

4) The donkey has loose stools. My husband will eventually come home with an electrolyte solution to put in her water. Nothing more I can do until the vet comes out tomorrow.

5) I'm dying for a gin & tonic. It will be my post workout reward. I already ate my daily ration of chocolate.

6) My nose is stuffy. For this, there are Kleenex.

So, excuses exhausted, I will now don my sneaks and hop onto the treadmill. See you in 10,000 steps or so.

    I had a week of excuses, too.

    too tired.
    had a headache.
    had to go shopping.
    had to go out to lunch.
    sinuses were bothering me.
    had baking to do.
    had to prepare meals.
    a really interesting episode of Dr. Oz that I wanted to watch.

    I'm done making excuses now.

    Good for you!! I have had a rather lost week. I fell off of my Bootcamp wagon. I had completed 2 weeks and then stuff started happening and I didn't do any bootcamp workouts all week. I still did plenty of cardio and I have stayed within my caloires and still drank all my water so I don't feel too terrible about it but guilty nonetheless for finding excuses for not following through. I find that when my days are not structured (we were on break from school this week) that I am not as organized and it is harder to stick with my routine. I am in CT and was actually in Boston on Wednesday so I was also very caught up in that whole escapade. So glad it is over. Almost, but not quite glad that I will be back to work on Monday and get back to business. I'm not sure if it is allowed but I plan to pick up on week 3 where I left off. Hope all your "excuses" get resolved and enjoy your gin and tonic emoticon
