Excuse: Someone if the family is always buying candy, donuts, cakes or something that I just want to sit and bing

I don't need it and go look for veggies, fruit or something else that helps that sweet tooth moment.

I am to busy to add another work out into my day

Here is something I learned from Jillian's Podcast. Set a realistic minimum goal for the week. Like gym 3x per week and let yourself be an over achiever. I really go 4-5 times but I will not let myself go below the minimum. It feels better to meet & exceed your goal than it does to set the bar to high and have a failure each week. If you hit work out 4 in a week in situation 1 you are doing awesome (feels good). In situation 2 you will have failed to reach your goal of 5(feels bad). Practice the meets & exceed it feels so good. Try this only if it fits your personality type.

Decide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work. - H.L. Hunt

Excuse: I'm sick

Buster: This doesn't mean I *have* to "feed a cold" and become a couch potato and what that implies as far as food choices.

To me, being sick or injured is about the only legitimate excuse as to why your progress has slowed, mainly because you are/feel incapable to exercise like you were doing and need to take it slow.
BUT that doesn't mean going off the rails with food choices or not drinking enough water! (with obvious exception to a stomach bug)

Right now I have a cold that is kicking my butt and I have to say that it's been really hard not to "feed" my cold... I do feel those tendencies, but I'm making a positive choice to still eat right (maybe even better) and drink enough water even though (and because) I'm not getting as much physical activity as usual.
Sure, the scale may still not be as happy with me if I were healthy and more active, but at least I'll know I didn't purposely make matters worse with bad food choices.

Excuse: I'm just too tired to workout!

Excuse Buster: Saying in my mind or even out loud "No, I'm not too tired! I want to do my workout!!" (Sometimes I may have to do this 20 times by the time my workout time comes)

Replace that negative with a positive!!
