Always Excuses & Tomorrows...

For anyone that has ever tried to lose weight and eat healthy, I am sure that you can relate to this post.

fitness inspirationHow many times have you said I'm going to go to the gym, or go for a run but come up with excuses like "Well it's raining outside", "I have too many things to get done", "I'll start tomorrow", etc.

"If we wait until we're ready, we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives." #Quote #InspirationDon't worry, I hate to admit this as well...but I do it ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME! "Oh I can eat this greasy burger, I'll just eat better tomorrow"..."I'll start "insert latest diet/challenge" tomorrow!" and blah blah blah.

Excuses and promised tomorrows get us no where! It feels comforting to say them in the moment, but we're going to regret it in the always too near future!

fitnessSo right now, yes...RIGHT NOW! Let's make a promise to ourselves that we aren't going to break! Promise that when we have a plan, we'll stick to it! That when we start making up excuses for why we can't exercise, we'll come up with a solution! It's raining outside? Too hot outside?...Too bad, NO EXCUSES!!! Grab your water, turn on the AC, throw in a Jillian Michaels DVD, dance in your room, use the Wii, or pull out your VHS player and throw in a Turbo tape for all I care!  Just find a way to burn calories and MAKE IT HAPPEN!

:) Have a great day, I believe in you!!

  2. I do the entire "There's tomorrow" bit. Now I do the "there's always after I'm done breastfeeding." lol! I need to get serious about SOME sort of diet even though I am breastfeeding.

    1. Great for baby, great for mom! Breastfeeding can burn a lot of calories!

      Diets don't always have to be extreme, just try making an effort to eat healthy and drink plenty of water! :)

      Thank you for reading!
