“Really Good” Excuses For Not Exercising Quiz

You know that I am a firm believer in daily exercise....just gotta do it.

So I cam across this “Really Good” Excuses For Not Exercising Quiz.  Yes, it's a bit funny, but I hope it makes everyone see how there is no good excuse for not exercising.
Feel free to leave a comment with your score.
1. I absolutely cannot exercise because:
  • I have an I.Q. of 175, and it wouldn’t be fair to have brains and beauty
  • I don’t want to look like Gwen Stafani or Jessica Biel
  • I don’t want to encourage the Hollywood stereotype that young girls have to live up to
  • I want to look like a “real” man
2. I don’t have to exercise because:
  • I’m already thin and if I exercise there won’t be anything left of me
  • I have superior metabolism
  • I barely consume enough calories in a day
  • I already have lots of energy
3. My idea of “Warming Up” before a workout is to:
  • Go lie under an electric blanket for 15 minutes
  • Go sit in front of a fireplace with a good book for 15 minutes
  • Go down to the local bar and order a “Boilermaker” and nurse it for 15 minutes
  • Go into the kitchen and make a cup of hot chocolate topped off with marshmallows and 15 different kinds of cookies
4. My favorite weight-loss reality tv show is:
  • The Biggest Loser
  • Celebrity Fit Club
  • Survivor
  • The Simple Life starring Paris Hilton & Nicole Ritchie
5. I exercise everyday by:
  • Walking 12 feet to my mailbox to retrieve the mail
  • Skipping 3 blocks down to the local Dunkin’ Donuts
  • Jumping up to use the bathroom or grab something to drink during the commercial breaks
  • Twirling round and round in my swivel chair for 30 seconds at work
6. Healthy foods:
  • like carrots make me fart
  • taste like cardboard
  • Aren’t for those who have tastebuds
  • Taste bland and aren’t
    7. I can’t afford to exercise because:
    • the Air Jordan tennis shoes I need cost $150
    • I have to pay for my kid’s college education in 18 years, so I have to start saving up NOW
    • I already went out to eat 3 times this week
    • Let’s face it, workout clothes aren’t attractive
    Scoring: For each answer selected subtract 5 points. Negative points means a negative attitude.
    8. All of the above answers are not only incredibly ridiculous but they are the worst excuses in the world for not exercising and eating properly?
    • True
    • False
    9. Excuses will help you lose weight and support your family, mentally and financially, when you drop dead from coronary heart disease?
    • True
    • False


    1. Hilarious! I'm not sure how I scored, but I so understand the frustrations or losing motivation and making excuses. Hang in there...and kick it in gear!

    2. I haven't been on your page in forever and I just wanted to say congrats on hitting goal and making it into Maintenance land! I'm so excited for you! Can't believe you are a trim 144 lbs! You have done so well and so fast too!!!

    3. First of all, the new "old" picture doesn't ecven look like you now. You are such a success! And you look beautiful!
      I think my main excuses are being sore from the workout the day before and that I am too tired 'cause I woke up too late. Since I didn't get a 6am workout in, then I don't have time the rest of the day. Sad, I know... :)

    4. Funny! Thanks for posting it.

    5. well, come to think of it I have used some of those excuses !!- too funny!
