Going to the gym is scientifically proven to help you lose weight. It strengthens your muscles, increases cardiovascular endurance and improves general mental health. However, sometimes life gets in the way and you need to rationally convince yourself that you can't go to the gym in order to not feel guilty.
Here are 5 foolproof excuses to use on your spouse, workout buddy or your conscience the next time you're feeling a little sluggish:
1. The Big Game
You would love to workout but that big game is on. There's going to be at least 2 or 3 footballs and maybe even a sport-dunk or two. You can't miss that.
2. Your Dog Has To Wash You
It's been at least a week since your dog has had a chance to bathe you. Proper owner maintenance is important for any pet.
3. "Someone" Flooded The Gym
You were pretty sure that it was just a dream... at least you don't think you've been sleepwalking and committing a series of water-related crimes.
4. The Police Want To Talk To You
Your gym has cameras. Apparently you do sleepwalk.
5. You're Being Held On Felony Charges
Your gym is pretty mad. On the bright side, prison workouts can be pretty effective, especially since there's nothing much else to do there.
