Excuses are like bellybuttons: everyone seems to have one.
And, even though not exercising can potentially be more dangerous than smoking,
people will come up with all kinds of reasons not to do it.
Some of these reasons are pretty common and are widely used:
Too much effort–35%
Just munched something–31%
Too many people at gym–22%
Some of these reasons are a little more inventive:
Climbed a bunch of stairs today–15%
Workout clothes dirty–15%
I have got a meeting coming up–15%
I am self conscious today–14%
Just got my hair done–12%
My workout is picking up my kids–10%
My cellphone battery is too drained–10%
And, sometimes, the “reasons” are just plain wacky:
My pinky toe got stubbed–
My cat is on fire–
Already worked out in my dreams–
The Viagra’s working a bit too hard–
So, here’s the deal, my body’s allergic to sweat, and…
I was abducted by aliens.
