I’m lazy, but let me explain…

lazinessI saw a headline on CNN today, that read something like, “92-year old woman, the oldest to complete a marathon.” I immediately thought, “SO!” Immediately after that, I realized how lazy I’ve become. I’m over here hating on my elders for no reason. I do have a list of reasons, not excuses, on how I’ve become so lazy and why I’m comfortable with being lazy. It’s not all about working out, it’s more about life in general.

1. I endured some childhood hardships that forced me into adulthood much sooner than most. #grownfortoolong

2. I was a teen mom. I’ve been a parent for almost 25 years AND I’m still in my early 40s for goodness sake! #parentfortoolong

3. I have three daughters. #enoughsaid

4. I use to be an athlete, but I wasn’t a great athlete. #whybother

5. I left Corporate America in 2008. #nomoretunnelwalking

6. I have an invisible illness and some mornings I can’t even get out of bed and it causes me to be fatigued sometimes. #toomuchtrouble

7. My petiteness creates a mental block of me not wanting to workout, because I don’t feel like I have to. However, I don’t want it to get to a point where you can’t tell if I’m coming or going. You know what I mean?? #needtokeepjunnkinthetrunk

8. I love good food and good drinks. #merriment

9. I would much rather have house parties and company, than to go out drinking. #oldschoolfool

10. I have no support system. Everyone that I know is working out to lose weight OR they are extreme fitness gurus/geeks. #Ijustwanttotone

11. I have grown way too comfortable with not driving outside of a 10 mile radius. #howaboutyalljustcomeover

12. I have a lot of irons on the fire, trying to reach personal and career goals before I turn 45. #focused

13. When I do go out, I do it big!! #thatmakesupforitall

I truly am health conscious and I would like to hangout more. I am just way too tired these days to mentally dedicate time to motivate myself to get moving. I also think it has something to do with aging and the comfortable place I’m in with life. I’m just comfortable, but not complacent. So, I will admit that overall, I’m lazy. I’m not dysfunctionally lazy and I believe I have valid reasons for being this way. You don’t think so? Meh!
