The excuse: "I get so caught up with work and friends and errands that I don't even think about exercising."
How to avoid it: Leave workout DVDs, your sneakers, or a pair of dumbbells out in the open as a reminder to get moving. Even better: choose items that pique your interest. Not into hardcore martial arts or bootcamp exercises? Find something you're excited about, like fun dance workout DVDs or the new DVDs we're loving this Fall! Those visual cues will bring fitness to the forefront of your mind, so you'll feel more motivated to get off the couch.
