10 exercise excuses--busted!

 
No more backing outta your workouts, babe. We’re blowing the lid on those oh-so famous excuses us girlies give to nix our fitness. 10 reasons why you can never cop out on getting your physical health in check again. 

“It’s too ____ out!”
Rising mercury/wet weather/freezing temps can kill your desire to exercise. Take the opp to swim laps in the pool, try out a Pilates DVD inside or too on an extra layer.

“I’m too tired.”
Avoid the urge to nap—moderate exercise actually boosts your energy. Tie on those sneaks and give something a whirl—even riding your bike counts.

“I HATE working out.”
Betcha ten bucks ya just haven’t found the right activity (OK, we can’t really bet, but you get the point). Promise yourself you’ll try one new activity this week, whether that’s tai chi or skateboarding.

“I have my period.”
Exercising actually lessens the effects of cramps, so PMS isn’t an excuse to sideline yourself. Stock up on tampons and make the most outta your workout.

“It’s called vacation for a reason.”
On vacay? It’s the perf opp to lace up those sneakers and take a walk to explore your destination. Or, check a way fun sport that’s not available in your hometown, like surfing.

“I’m naturally skinny...I don’t have to workout.”
Sorry, sugar. Exercising isn’t just about slimming down—it gives your bod about a million other benefits as well. Strengthen your heart and bones by exercising vigorously—now!

“I’m so not athletic.”
So what? There are tons of activities that don’t require catching, throwing or kicking. Martial arts, dance, Pilates, yoga, Zumba and spinning are great for girls who don’t dig team sports.

“Ugh. Exercising is sooo boring.”
Crank up the tunes and start working out with your besties. Friends + music = instant fun, even if you’re just doing push-ups and crunches.

“I’m too busy!”
We know it can be tough to squeeze in a sweat sesh, especially between homework, extracurrics, part-time jobs and hanging with friends. Consider breaking up your workout into 10 minute pieces—you’ll still get all the same plusses.  

“I went running yesterday.”
It’s alright to take days off, but make sure you aren’t nixing sweat sessions every day. Girls who are trying out for an upcoming team sport should get in the habit of exercising more often now. Even if it’s not that intense, go for it!
