There are all kinds of excuses we can come up with to not get fit or to not stay fit. Most are bogus. That’s some really tough love, isn’t it?
Yet, I’ve trained with people who have serious, debilitating diseases like lupus, multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia to name a few.
I’ve worked with women going through a divorce or even mourning the loss of a loved one.
I’ve worked with women working hectic, crazy schedules.
I’ve worked with women when they’re sick, when they’re injured.
I’ve worked with women who were battling morbid obesity and women who were battling anorexia or bulimia.
I’ve worked with women who have newborn babies and a million kids playing a million sports. Those are all potential excuses, they just chose to push past them. And you can too.
What you have to do is turn your excuse into your reason to push, to get stronger. If we don’t, we allow our excuses to become validation for why we don’t achieve our goals. Instead, let’s make them the motivation.
Putting your big girl panties on means overcoming your excuses to make some muscles. What are some of the excuses you find yourself making? How can you rewrite them into reasons?
When we lose our excuses, we find results.
