thanks Report
There will always be excuses. They must be conquered! Report
Thanks for good reminder that I am not the only one in the world that feels this way. I find it very easy to justify an excuse for pretty much any reason. But you gave some really good reasons for doing it-thanks again. Report
Being retired, I don't have to get up early, until my dog wakes me up at 7. So, that is not an issue, But as a younger person, I found a time slot around 4pm doing aerobic dancing, that I loved and the time was early enough to get home to get dinner on the table, too. It was never a "fight" with myself. I loved it.
I still try to do exercise when it is good for me and do exercise that I really enjoy. Walking with friends or my husband and dog, swimming on a sunny day or at the pool, skiing in winter, etc. are examples.
My solution is to find a fun exrcise at a convenient time. Then there is no "fighting". Report

I am a master at making excuses Report
OK. Good adage: I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do. Thanx Report
I had been on the cross-country team in high school. In my 50's I decided to run again, except on a well-lit track, at a school, with houses nearby. For over a year, I struggled with myself each dark and cold morning, but went anyway....Until my knees couldn't take it. We got a treadmill and I was quite disappointed that I couldn't drop the weight like I did from 10 miles on the track....My health declined greatly this past year, and now I'm in physical therapy. These words from my young therapist have helped me with my exercise streak: WHEN YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE EXERCISING THAT IS WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST....I also like the Spark People suggestion of just doing 10 minutes, as that gets me going.

I read a lot of articles and I really like this one. It hits home. Report
