This past week I have struggled with the motivation to exercise. My eating habits are great but with the change in my work schedule I just can't seem to get motivated to go to the gym. I tried to get up in the morning and just couldn't seem to make myself get dressed and go. By the time I get off work at 6pm and fight for an hour to drive only 18 miles home, the last thing I want to do is fight the people at the gym for equipment.

I know, I know..these are only excuses. How easy it is to make excuses. They come to mind and take us over in a blink of an eye. Excuses are what got us in trouble to begin with. One more bite because something tastes so good and I will diet again tomorrow. Thousands of bites later, I was overweight and miserable.

I am done with excuses. Excuses are not who I am. Who I am is a strong woman who knows what she wants and will figure out a way to make it work. I will find the time for me. In the end that is what it is all about anyway. Finding the time.

  1. Glad you are done with excuses. Once you're exercising it's not so bad. I joined the gym to help make myself more accountable. I even splurged and have a trainer. Actually, after a while I came to like it. Got to run - it is trainer day!

    BTW, Drazil sent me!
