Excuses don't exist without U in the middle!

"Any excuse U make will work", sometimes we're our own worse enemy when it comes to achieving a healthy lifestyle, for when U make an excuse, guess what it comes to pass.....
1. I don't have time to exercise - translation, I don't want to make it a priority to schedule it into my day, or to find hidden opportunities to squeeze in 10 minutes here or 10 minutes there. Remember, it doesn't have to be a formal affair, marching in place works too.
2. I don't like many healthy foods - translation, I'm off the hook for trying new recipes and ways of cooking healthy foods to see if I can find a way I do like them.
3. My schedule is so busy I often am grabbing whatever I can in whatever time I have - translation, I don't want to take the time to pre plan my days worth of meals, making sure I take convenient grab and go items to stay on track or throw items in a slow cooker to be ready for dinner when I get home.
4. It costs too much to eat healthy - translation, it's just easier to go through drive thru or do take out, compare the cost of a meal at the golden arches to one made at home and the math doesn't compute (not to mention the additional health costs associated with being overweight or obese).
So you see, if you take U out of the middle U will never again have an excuse! Today is no excuse day....ok I just made it up, but who's with me....today I will not let a head cold be my excuse!
