As a big guy with a desk job I understand it’s important to workout regularly. In my effort to achieve this goal I’ve had a membership at two different gyms for years. My thought was depending on my mood I can go to a gym that suites me. Instead I end up going to the gym no more than twice a week consistently.
A few times a week I make plans to go to the gym but rarely do. Some excuses I make are;
- I can’t find my gloves
- I cant find my earphones
- My kids are about to wake up
- My wife may need something from the store when she wakes up
- This is a good show
- And my personal favorite, I’ll go tomorrow.
The truth is not a single excuse I listed physically keeps me from going to the gym. If my kids were in trouble and going to the gym would save them those excuses wouldn’t even cross my mind.
I need to get serious about working out. When I find myself making up excuses for not working out I’m going to ignore them, because I understand any excuse will do.
