What #NoExcuses Means to Me

Happy Tuesday Friends! Gosh every time I post I feel like I am giving another excuse as to where the heck I've been the past few weeks.  Well not anymore! 

If you can remember, a few weeks ago I talked about my becoming a #SweatPink Ambassador and how I joined the New Year, New You, No Excuses challenge.  Over the past few weeks I have been doing the challenges and sharing all of the pictures on Instagram.  On top of the daily challenges, they also give us a little weekly challenge to partake in and this week's challenge is to talk about what #NoExcuses really means to each one of us. 

It is rather ironic that I would be talking about this subject today since last night was filled with excuses for why I could not get to the gym: I'm tired - I don't feel well - I would rather sit at home and catch up on TV ( I mean who doesn't love The Bachelor) - I think my husband would prefer I didn't go to the gym... and the list goes on.

If I am being honest with myself, the plain and simple fact of me not going to the gym is because I am lazy and just did not want to.  However, when I woke up this morning, I knew I made a mistake and should have gone and spent the 30 or so minutes to get even a quick workout in.  

So what does #NoExcuses mean to me? 

I means keeping a commitment to myself, to actively working toward my goal and to living with no regrets

I do not want to live my life with the feeling that I failed myself by not following through at the gym or in other areas of my life.  It is time that I stop making excuses for myself and move forward to becoming the best and most exciting version of myself that I can be.  

Question of the Day: What excuses will you be throwing out the window?
