London winter is upon us. It is getting colder and darker by the second and I do not approve. Hit me with some snow and I might overlook it - but for right now - it is just cold and dark and getting harder and harder to make the effort to exercise when sitting on the couch seems like a way more cozy option. For all those living in colder (darker) parts of the world right now - I thought I would help you out by providing you with:

A list of perfectly valid excuses NOT to exercise.
(Use them whenever you feel is necessary)
  1. It's too cold.
  2. It's too hot.
  3. I've already eaten a pie, a pizza and a bag of chips - there is no point.
  4. I've only eaten celery today - I don't need to.
  5. I can't find my sports bra.
  6. It was feminist-day yesterday - I burnt my sports bra.
  7. I don't have a sports bra.
  8. My gym clothes are in the wash.
  9. I need to wash my gym clothes.
  10. My lover likes me "chunky"
  11. I like me "chunky"
  12. I'll just get a tan.
  13. I'm a bit "busy" with something.
  14. People should love me for my personality.
  15. I need to do this other thing.
  16. I need to do another other thing.
  17. I'll just do a series of rapid eye-blinking - am sure there are calories to be burned in that.
  18. I'm inventing my own new exercise - finger snapping.
  19. Laughing is basically the same as exercising.
  20. Shivering is EXACTLY the same as exercising.
  21. I've been neglecting the couch lately - must make ammends.
  22. I don't want to get too skinny.
  23. I can't leave the house now it's too dark - I will definitely die.
  24. I might sprain a muscle.
  25. i cut my fingernail too close to my pinky - it's very sore.
  26. I must listen to my body - it's very sore.
  27. I'll just do some light stretching.
  28. I'll start on Monday.
  29. Oh! I forgot Monday is my "rest day"
  30. I need a rest day.
  31. I'll eat ONLY PROTEINS tomorrow.
  32. I don't want to over-endorphin myself.
  33. I forgot I already have other plans.
  34. I don't have enough fuel for this workout - I might feel faint.
  35. Oh no, i just painted my nails.
  36. I've already showered today.
Also - you guys... I love you guys on twitter - y'all are such fun! Come join the party! @indieBerries

PS y'all - you should all TOTALLY exercise. It's good for you and such.
(And when you find the motivation - come over to my house - I will talk you out of it pretty quickly. Wine?)
