Excuse Me

Sunday, February 26, 2012

So I'm supposed to "Write a blog listing all the excuses you tell yourself every day. Then write a counter excuse for every excuse you have written."

But I don't really have any every day excuses. Mine are more like every other day. Nonetheless... Without further ado,

"Inner Child" meets the voice of reason.

"I exercised today, so it won't hurt to eat out tonight."
Yeah, but it sure as heck won't help either!!!

"I forgot to thaw anything to cook for dinner. Gotta go out to eat."
Really? There's a grocery store less than a mile away. Walk your fat a$$ down there and buy some fresh meat to cook. And get some fresh veggies while you're at it.

"I've been exercising 60 minutes every day even though my goal is 30. Taking a day off isn't a big deal."
Last time you took a day off you felt like utter dog poo for the whole day. Get yer a$$ on that balance board!!!

"It doesn't count if I only take a bite or two."
Oh yeah? That 2 bite brownie has like 80 calories in it! I'd say that counts!!!

"I might as well eat these leftovers... Don't want them to go to waste."
So instead they will go to waist. Great decision. *SMACK*

    Oh my goodness...that was amazing! I love it! I think I will use that too....if you can use the counter excuses on yourself and keep repeating it....I believe it will sink in. Way to go!

    emoticon I use some of those too. And I try to talk myself out of them but I'm stubborn and don't always listen.
