Excuses, Excuses...

Excuses, excuses, let's be honest, we all have them! It doesn't matter where you are in a workout program, just getting started, thinking of starting one or you've been working out for years, you can always find an excuse to not workout. "I'm too tired", "I'm too busy", "I don't feel good", "I ate like crap, why workout?"

Please, please, stop with the excuses, I promise you, if you're tired, you will feel better when you are finished with your workout. If you are too busy, you will be able to manage your stress and work-load better after working out, Yea for those endorphins! As for the not feeling well, if you really are sick, take time to rest and get better, but if it's a low-energy or stomach issue, try a few minutes and see how you feel. After ten minutes of working out, asses how you feel! My favorite excuses, the unhealthy eating, so let's continue to be unhealthy. That attitude is one of the most destructive for both your mind and body! Everyone has an unhealthy meal, day, weekend, etc, the problem lies in the continuous destructive, unhealthy eating. It's okay to have dessert, a few drinks, indulge here and there, but you need to accept your indulgence (over-indulgence) and get right back on with your healthy lifestyle.

Have a great week, get some great workouts in and fuel those workouts with awesome nutrition!
