Excuses

Excuses. We all make them. A lot of mine are centered around food or the gym. Excuses for why I should eat something (it was a rough day, I had a good work out...). Excuses for why I shoudn't eat something (I already had one, I don't need to eat late...). Excuse for why I need to exercise (I ate too much, I didn't go yesterday...). Excuse for why I don't need to exercise (I am too tired, there isn't enough time...). Some excuses (or reasons) seem valid, so not so much. Whatever is going on, I just need to get my butt in gear and eat right and go to the gym. No questions about it. However it isn't always that easy. Tonight I made dinner with my little sistah. I didn't take her home until almost 8. I also wanted to go to the gym tonight. My gym closes at 10, so that would be more than enough time to go to the gym, but also pushing it. I also wanted to register for boot camp class before I left for LA so there would be no way I could skip out come Monday February 5th. I also need to pack for my trip and as I was sitting on the couch after dinner it was just so comfy. In the end I made it to the gym and I am so glad I did! My schedule will be crazy for the next couple of days. With traveling and the conference I really am going to have to work hard at eating well and some exercise. Oh and I am going Disneyland on Saturday!!!! So in the end I am really glad I didn't let excuses get the best of me even though I still need to pack.

What are some of your excuses and what do you do to talk yourself out of them?

I now live three blocks from my gym.

How often do I really go? Rarely.

My couch talks me out of it.

OMG I used to live on excuses. Everyday, all day. I'd always have a little coversation as to why/why I shouldnt eat something and I always convinced myself to eat it. Terrible habit. I still do it now but mostly tell myself NO.. and most excuses I have deal with food too! UGH!
