    * I am on holidays!!!
    * I need a break from structure and routine!!
    * I need a coffee!!

    these are impressive. very hard to penetrate. well done. A+

  3. Lis says:

    *The gym will be too busy, I’ll never get a machine
    * All those muscle head grunters will be there; they scare me
    *I’m too stressed; I’ll feel better if I eat/change into my jammies/veg on the couch instead
    *I forgot my iPod/iPhone/tunes
    *I don’t want to work out too much as I don’t want to “bulk up” (usually uttered by a female who is new to working out and does not understand the sheer amount of physical effort and proper eating it takes to naturally “get bulk”)

    Note, these are not MY excuses; this is ME adding to the list of things I hear!

    Lisa, I’ve heard a lot of those ones before, and I know that you have never uttered a one!
