Every single day you can come up with excuses not to exercise. You don’t even have to work hard at it. Maybe you stayed up too late the night before or you don’t have enough time (even though you hopped on the couch to watch your favorite TV show) or you have a hitch in your get-along. Excuses are easy, plentiful and often plausible but you know in your heart that if you take the easy way out, you’re letting yourself down. Don’t get in the habit of self-sabotaging. The more often you allow yourself to skip a workout, the easier it is to do it the next time. Instead of throwing in the towel when you’re having an off day, just go a little lighter in the weight room, run a shorter distance at a slower pace or if that still seems like too much…go for a walk.
Remember, doing a little something is far superior to doing nothing.
