Mid-Month Resolution Excuses

january 1st was on a wednesday, that week was already shot.  i might as well start on february 1 instead.

well i'm too fat to go to the gym, i need to diet first.

the gym is too crowded with all the other resolution people.  i'll wait until it dies down.

it's so cold out.  i can't exercise, or get to the store for health foods.  it's -5 degrees and dominos delivers.

i am watching less tv.  netflix isn't technically tv.

i was drinking when i said i'd give up drinking.  that can't count, i was drunk.

i can't diet until after the superbowl.

i was going to walk more, but it's been -40 degrees.

i'd be better at budgeting, but i've been having to take cabs with this terrible weather.

my planner hasn't arrived yet, i can't get better at scheduling until it gets here.

i was going to pay my credit card, but then all the christmas present charges hit.

i can't really deep clean until i get this place organized.

i can't organize until i get rid of some things.

i can't get rid of anything without my spouse's/roommate's approval, and they've been too busy.

i was planning on being less stressed, but look at how hard all these resolutions are.

i went to the gym... i mean, that one time, i did.



well.... here's to 2015!  kidding, it's only 3 weeks in.  get back on the horse!

  7. ha! this sounds like my coworker. he is all "oh, i need to workout, i'm gaining weight" etc etc and then after every suggestion we make, he comes up with an excuse. so funny.

    oh, and the "i can't walk, it's -40" is legit. today is -30. yay.

  9. But excuses are much more fun to make than time for the gym! Speaking of needing more time, I totally thought of you when I created 7 drafted blog posts. It's nowhere near 200 but it's a start. Yay blog planning!

  17. SMD's Momma here- Enjoyed this blog and will be perusing in the future. I will be 58 in June.
    The longer you live, the lamer your excuses. Best is humor! I, too, started 1-1, and have fallen off and gotten back on more than a few times these past few weeks. Godspeed to all of us!

    1. Thanks Steph's Momma! I'm glad you stopped by! And thank you - Lord knows we all need the encouragement. I think I've used every one of these excuses and more in the last three weeks. It's still early though, we got this!

  18. Ordering pizza is just so much easier some nights! And then there's always chinese takeout, Chipotle, or grabbing a quick burger. With fries. The diet can always start tomorrow.

  20. Guilty on a few of those....

    And I swear, my life would be much more organized if I had an Erin Condren planner!

  21. laughed this entire post! just like that commercial where the guy and girl keep giving each other excuses why they didn't make it to the gym..."I don't think I need it today." that's me everyday, btw.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hahaha! Mine is always, why did I say I would do that anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  23. You always make me laugh!! This is all so true!!!!

  25. hahahahaha I love this! I'm proud to say that I've actually stuck with my goals thus far, woot woot!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha! I am pretty good at making excuses too! I ate like crap the last few weeks because I wasn't able to work out and really what is all the effort for if I couldn't give it my all. Oops.

  28. I swear to god that "I can't deep clean until I get this place organized" is a vicious, vicious cycle that NEVER ENDS. Add one more step though. I can't get organized until I do all of this laundry.........

    ReplyDelete
  29. Pretty sure I've already said some of these : )

    ReplyDelete
  30. hahahahaha LOVE LOVE LOVE. so true!

  31. girl, you are good! You've got an excuse for everything. I've used that it's too cold to grocery shop, I'll order in excuse. A lot. High five! Or no? Bah!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ha! I always LOVE reading your posts. You crack me up. I'm the same way...resolutions are so hard. I just want to do whatever the hell I want to do. On the plus side...I won $300 at the casino and $450 at bingo. SO, I was actually able to pay off one of my credit cards. Score!

  35. "i was drinking when i said i'd give up drinking. that can't count, i was drunk." <-- OBVI my favorite.

    These are all incredibly valid excuses and I believe you. And I wish my gym was crowded so I would have that excuse...UGH.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Were you inside my head when you wrote #3 and #5?! Because the crowded gym drives me nuts. And I got rid of my cable thinking I would watch less tv but I'm so addicted to Netflix, its crazy!
