Excuses, excuses, excuses!
It seems so many people have excuses which ends in unpleasant situations…
- Doctor offices
- or Morgues
I’m sorry to be so blunt, but sometimes blunt is the only way to get the attention of humans.
You see, I am talking about excuses people make to not eat right, not exercise and to not keep in healthy shape.
Here are 6 unhealthy excuses that you should stop making and get yourself in a healthy state of life.
#1 Unhealthy Excuses: Obesity Is In My Genes
This is one of the top excuses I have heard people use to explain their own obesity. Just because Grandpa Joe, Aunt Louise and 2nd Cousin Alice are all overweight does not mean they passed the trait to you.
Actually, they probably passed the blueberry pie with whipped cream along with other fat-causing recipes.
Now I suggest you take another look at the family and focus on those who are not obese. How come the gene didn’t pass to them?
It’s time to throw away the genetic excuse along with the pie recipe.
#2 Unhealthy Excuses: I’m Too Tired After Work To Exercise
Okay… You are too tired after work, so why not before work?
Will I now hear a new excuse? It will make me tired for work.
Sorry, but I won’t buy into that. You see, several studies have determined that physical activity will give you more energy.
I just debunked your second excuse, so set your alarm clock earlier and get up and exercise.
#3 Unhealthy Excuses: I Don’t Have Time To Exercise
Let me ask you a question, how much television did you watch this past week? How much Facebook did you do? Or did you play some video games?
If you found time to do any of those things, you can surely find 20 minutes to 1 hour to exercise each day.
#4 Unhealthy Excuses: Because It Is Thanksgiving, A Birthday, St Patrick’s Day Or The Anniversary Of My Great, Great Grandparent’s Wedding
There always seems to be some kind of holiday excuse to eat the wrong stuff. C’mon, just admit you ate that glazed doughnut because your willpower was weak.
Now take a look in the mirror and quit lying to yourself.
You are a beautiful person who needs to lose some weight; and believe me, you look great the way you are, but that obesity is damaging your health.
Please… Please, please realize that all of us want you healthy. So just say no to the brownie and eat some of the carrots and celery instead.
#5 Unhealthy Excuses: I Already Screwed Up, So I’ll Just Go All The Way
I wonder how many times people who are trying to lose weight take that piece of cake, eat one bite and realize, “Hey, I’m on a diet.”
They then say to themselves, “Well, I screwed up! I may as well eat the whole thing.”
Why allow the snowball to roll down the mountain and become an avalanche? Sure, you made one mistake, but you caught it before too much damage is caused. Don’t allow small slips to become major issues.
#6 Unhealthy Excuses: The Scale Must Be Broken
No, the scale is just fine. You just need to get back on track and stop making excuses.
I believe you should see my point by now. The excuses need to stop!
If you slip, just pick yourself up and admit you are only human and get back on the “healthy you bus.”
If you need help… If you need another set of ears to hear and a mouth to keep you moving forward, I would be happy to be your coach. But mind you, I don’t fall for excuses.
