Results or Excuses - Which rule your Life? (2014- Blog #46)

Sunday, February 16, 2014

"You can have results or excuses. Not both."
Jen Segger

There have been times in my life where excuses for not being as healthy as I should be ruled. Here are a few of my "regulars".. that start off some poor choices:
emoticon I have had a long day.
emoticon I did awesome yesterday.
emoticon I had a crappy day.
emoticon I am tired.
emoticon Basically my clothes still fit.
emoticon I just love sweet stuff. It is me.
emoticon It is too cold out.
emoticon it is too wet out.
emoticon Tomorrow.
emoticon It is too dark.
emoticon It is too early.
emoticon It is too late.
emoticon The gym is too expensive.
emoticon The rest of the people in the gym look so much better.
emoticon The rest of the people in the weight area know what they are doing.

But fortunately, although that list was rather easy to write, I have overcome many of those excuses. If I do think of the excuse, I follow it with BUT...
emoticon It is too cold out there, BUT I can dress in layers.
emoticon It is too wet out there, BUT I have rain gear!
emoticon The gym is too expensive, BUT I can find a better deal somewhere else.
emoticon It is too late, BUT DH will have dinner waiting for me no matter how late.
emoticon Basically my clothes still fit, BUT they are tighter and it does not feel as comfortable. I like 'em lose.
emoticon Tomorrow, BUT today will get today's results.
emoticon I just love sweets, BUT I can eat them in moderation.
emoticon I had a crappy day, BUT exercise will make me feel better.

And on it goes... When I turn my excuses around, I do get results. My clothes fit better, my body feels livelier, my mood is lighter.

And you? More excuses or more results?
