Life is full of excuses.

I'm sick.
I'm tired.
I'm busy.
I'm lazy.
I don't want to.
I have other things to do.

Etc., etc., etc.

So, last week, I was very sick. Monday night, Tuesday and Wednesday entailed me either laying on the couch or sleeping in bed. Running a high temp was brutal as were the aches and extreme exhaustion. I started feeling better Thursday and had late night conferences. Then, Friday I kind of felt like crap again. Saturday was the first day I felt normal, but I told myself I don't want to push it. Excuse #1.

Sunday, we traveled an hour and a half to my niece's 6th birthday party. We left at 11 and got back around 6. It's been a long day. Excuse #2.

Monday, I seriously did have a migraine and pretty much slept from 4-9 PM and then went to bed to avoid it getting any worse.

Tuesday, late night conferences and didn't want to get up early. Excuse #3.

Wednesday, had late night conferences the night before and grad class from 6-9 PM. Don't have time. Excuse #4.

Today. What's my excuse? I don't have one.

I am beginning my spring break. For the next 10 days, I don't have to worry about work or grad class (yay for my college and school I work at for having the same spring break). There are no excuses.

"But I want to enjoy my break."

I will. Just because I use an hour or so to workout doesn't mean I can't enjoy the rest of the day. That's a poor excuse if I've ever heard one.

One bonus to being sick and a small kudos to me....I lost three pounds from not really eating for two days last week and I have actually been able to keep it off. Go me.

What's your excuse? Forget it.
