I can't run I don't have a hair elastic...

This was actually the thought that popped into my head when I could not find a hair tie this morning.  I am not proud but I have talent of finding the lamest excuses for not working out. I typically talk myself out of one run a week.  Right before I sat down on the couch to ditch my run, I decided that I am done with the excuses.  I love to run and I never regret working out, however, I do regret the lame excuses and not working out.

 So I got my sneakers on and headed out for a run with my hair flipping in the breeze sans elastic.  It was a slow start but it felt great to be on the road.  I was planning on heading to the gym for a treadmill speed work out but instead I headed here to do some speed work around the 1/2 mile loop. Much better scenery then the gym or a track.

I was motivated all day to not make any lame excuses and just do what I needed to get done.  Tonight the motivation/ no excuses motto continued.  When I got from home at 6pm, I put on  my work out clothes on and finally at 8:30pm ( after doing all the night time/ next day routine) I did this.

Normally I would have made some lame-o excuse like the jumping would bother my neighbors tv watching or that I would have to take another shower but tonight I just did it and I am happy I did!

Did you make excuses?  What did you do to overcome the excuses??


  1. Good for you for not making excuses!!!
    I *could* have made an excuse today especially since the only thing on my training plan was a 2 miler. BUT even though I spent the entired day home with a sick kiddo, I headed out late and got my 2 miles in.
    Hope you have a great rest of the week!

  2. hey!! I do you have signed up... I dont know why I didn't put your name down!! I'm double checking everything today!! :D

  3. I've heard good things about Jillian's Shred...be curious to hear what you think!! Yeah, sans ponytail run would totally drive me nuts! I have those elastic things EVERYWHERE...purse, gym bag, car, desk at work.... endless list. haha.

    Can you please email me your mailing address for the bog gift exchange? I am going to start picking buddies here soon and need to give them your address.

    Thanks bunches!!

  4. It's easy for me to come up with excuses too. But good for you for having to shower twice in one day!
