No time for workout: Lavigne

London: Canadian singer Avril Lavigne says her hectic schedule keeps her away from the gym but she is thankful her work keeps her constantly on her toes.

"If I didn`t work and was at home and had a normal schedule I`d work out all the time but it`s really hard to do that when you travel because you`re so tired. My excuse is that I work out on stage, running around all night," quoted Lavigne as saying.

She says her schedule is sometimes such that she even has to file her nails on flight.

"I did my nails on the plane. When I was flying to New York Fashion Week, I was like, `Oh ... I didn`t get my nails done.` So I stuck on some Sally Hensen nail stickers during the flight.

"They`re like nail polish and stay on for 10 days without chipping. They`re my lifesavers - especially out here on the road because I don`t want to sit in the salon getting my nails done," she said.
