One Goal – Many Excuses.

One goal – many excuses!

Do you wonder why sometimes it happens that you want to achieve something really badly but you just can’t seem to make it happen?

I spend a lot of my time talking to people who are trying to lose weight and this means the need for long term changes in habits, food input and exercise. I have no doubt these clients, and maybe you too, want to achieve better health and weight loss however lots of “things” keep getting in the way.

Do any of these ring true for you?

  • I’ll start tomorrow
  • I’m really busy with family commitments
  • I’m so tired
  • Circumstances aren’t ideal at the moment
  • It’s too hot, or cold, or rainy
  • One won’t hurt
  • I deserve this

The thing with health, fitness and weight loss is that it doesn’t wait for ideal circumstances or perfect weather or until you have more energy or time-. Each day you allow these things to cloud your decision making your goal is moving further away.

Can I ask you a question?

How many times have you ever failed to?

  1. Feed your kids- and left them go hungry
  2. Pick kids up from school
  3. Turn up for work
  4. Feed your pets
  5. Look after your daily hygiene

And used the excuse “I’m too tired” or “I deserve a break” or “It’s too hot!” I guess not too many times if any- so what’s the difference between these tasks and the desire to lose weight?


The answer: responsibility.



You have taken on the responsibility of caring for your kids and/or pets and the responsibility of turning up for work and making sure you shower regularly.


Have you taken on responsibility for your health? Weight loss? Fitness goals?


When we allow life to get in the way of the things we want to achieve there will always be an excuse that fits. The people that achieve their health and weight loss goals are those that take on the responsibility for their actions and plans that end up getting what they want. It’s no accident- it’s responsibility.


Sometimes life does get in the way and prevent your ideal plan from being carried out that day or that week. A responsible plan for success is one where the plan becomes revised and other steps put in place rather than throwing the whole idea out the window.


Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. Don’t throw your health goals out just because it gets hot or you are tired. Stick with them, revise them if you need but don’t throw the whole plan away because you if you take responsibility you will really enjoy the end result.


Good Luck
