hmmm..... WHY can't I do the things that are good for me?
I don't feel like it
I DESERVE (to take it easy)
(the cake - pie - cookie - ice cream)
I'm too busy (to work out)
(to cut vegetables - plan meals)
I can't do it right
I look stupid
I can't afford it (gym membership)
SHE doesn't have to do it (exercise) or SHE gets to eat it (food)
I don't know how it will turn out
Who SAYS I have to do it?
The truth is:
If my kid gave me any of these as reasons
or if I applied them to something the world called valuable (work, service, etc)
I would label these as EXCUSES
Because they are.
