I rarely watch TV but I laugh every time I see this commercial because it is so me! I used to have people say things to me like “You love working out”.
See commercial here.
The truth is- I really don’t. I really, really don’t.
I like feeling healthy
I like the people I see
I like feeling like I am not a couch potato
But I DO NOT enjoy working out.
I do it almost every day. Either go to the gym or walk the dog 2 and half miles, but I don’t love doing it. Matter of fact, I was telling someone recently that I will use the excuse of rain not to go to the gym.
Dan will say to me “You going to the gym tonight?”
“Nah, it’s raining”, I’ll say.
He looks at me like I have 2 heads and asks what rain has got to do with me going to the gym. I look at him like “why don’t you get this?” and say “It’s raining, I don’t want to go”.
I have gotten much better about not using that as an excuse because really anything can be an excuse and I just need to go. I find other things to motivate me as the exercise itself isn’t enough to get me there. I look forward to the teacher, or people I know, or feeling good afterwards.
What do you use an excuse not to exercise?
