Wobble-Less Wednesday - Stop Making Excuses!!!

I have a confession - I am the Queen of excuses! If I can put something off then I will for as long as I can, making 1000 excuses!

In the past 6years those excuses have resulted in me gaining nearly 3.5stone of weight, but enough is enough - no more. I asked the question on Twitter, and I got responses with the same excuses I make to myself every week. Its frustrating, especially as we're now 16weeks away from the summer and my mindset needs to be changed. These are my excuses:

- "I'll start tomorrow" I make one every Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, etc if I don't want to do something. This is especially true of what I eat, if I can have cake then I will, the diet will start again tomorrow. This can knock me for a full day and I'll eat whatever - but one small slip shouldn't cancel all the good I have been doing!

- "I've been really busy today" Really? How busy is busy? So busy that you've burnt enough calories for those two packets of crisps? I think not! I use this occasionally when I'm feeling lazy, however its no excuse - an hour workout is only 4% of your total day -have I really been that busy?

- "I've nothing to wear" No more is this an excuse, I actually love workout gear, there's so much cute stuff out there - I swear by Zaggora hotpants or Capri pants and a t-shirt, I usually get these from Primark as I cut them up to be how I want them to be. Its not meant to be a catwalk on the treadmill so stop making that excuse! 

- "If no one sees me eat it then did I really eat it?" How many of us are guilty of this?  Yes you have eaten it, yes you will need to burn it off - your only lying to yourself! This is where Weight Watchers comes in for me - I plan and track everything, even that little corner of the biscuit needs to be tracked. If you don't want to join WW then grab yourself a little diary/notebook & write everything down, or better still take a picture on your phone! Make yourself aware of what's going in your mouth, even when your not thinking about it! 

So those are just some of my excuses, I will not let them stop me! What excuses do you make? How do you over come your excuses?
