I constantly hear excuses from people when it comes to working towards a goal. Excuses are exactly what they are….EXCUSES!
So let’s STOP making these excuses…
Excuse #1 I DON’T HAVE TIME TO EXERCISE
This is by far the excuse that is used the most. It’s quite easy to say ‘I got a full time job’ ‘The kids take up all my time’ ‘I work long hours’ BLAH! BLAH! BLAH!
If this is your excuse then hOw serious are you about achieving your goal? How serious are you about changing your lifestyle? Is your health important to you?
The thing is all it takes is 20mins 3-4 times per week. Thats 60-80 mins I’m sure you can find each week. Not much if you ask me!
So wipe that time thing out of your head.
Excuse #2 I AM TOO TIRED TO EXERCISE
Here is the thing about the ‘too tired to exercise’ excuse, it just might help if you start moving around and exercising. If you are sitting around all day at work everyday, you can’t expect to be full of energy after that. The other thing about this excuse is what are you eating habits like? Are you eating loads of clean, organic food or do you grab something quickly from your local shop that consists of a sandwich, a bag of crisps and a bottle of coke. Maybe a chocolate bar of some sort later in the day to get your ‘energy ‘ levels up.
If you are not eating a clean healthy, nutritious meal then guess what, you will feel tired and drained.
Here is a meal plan for the day:
Breakfast- boiled egg with bacon and avocado
Lunch- green salad with sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and pineapple chunks with chicken breast
Dinner- roasted carrots, asparagus and broccoli with beef burgers.
Excuse #3 THE GYM IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND PACKED
You got your body. That’s the least expensive tool you need to go after your fitness goals. There are loads of parks and open space that you can use or even your living room which are all FREE. With your own body using bodyweight exercise (like in the 20min workout above) you got a moving gym to use.
Stop making these 3 excuses and transform your lifestyle to feel healthier and more energized.
