The Worst Excuse Ever I Dont Have Enough Time - The Directory Group

The worst excuse ever? ‘I don’t have enough time’

Well, that’s what I used to think.  After a long struggle to finally work exercise into my almost every day routine, I realise now that I don’t have time to NOT do exercise!  Want to know why?  Well, because if I don’t exercise, here is a list of a few things I will end be doing instead …

            Not getting anything done because I’m sad and depressed

            Sitting in the queue at the doctor’s surgery wondering what’s wrong with me this time

            Queuing at the pharmacy for my blood pressure medication

            Buying bigger clothes that I still don’t like or look good in

            Taking twice as long to get up off the couch than I did the day before yesterday

            Having an afternoon nap to recover from my afternoon sugar fix

            Crawling out of bed wondering why I don’t feel like I’ve had any sleep

            Putting on swathes of makeup to cover the adult acne

            Struggling to reach my feet to tie up my shoe laces

            Replacing the buttons on my trousers every time they pop off

            Sitting on the side lines while my kids run around having all the fun

            Not going out on a dinner date because I don’t want to embarrass my husband or myself

The list could be endless. When we finally start exercising regularly, even small amounts, we realise that ‘every little helps’.  Putting exercise at the top of our priority list, and finding the time to do it, will actually add more healthy, fun and fit years onto our lives.  It will give us more energy to enjoy our family and friends making wonderful memories, rather than wasting our life trying not to remember all our fat photos … or do you still think you ‘don’t have enough time?
