Naming, shaming and breaking down my excuses.

I’m too fat to….
….. well if I’m not exercising and keeping an eye on what passes my lips, that’s not going to change.

I don’t have anyone to do it with….
…… I don’t need someone to hold my hand, I’m there to exercise, with time I’ll get to know others there.

I’m not fit enough to…..
…… duh, why do I think I’m working out?

I don’t know anyone to…….
…… as above – why do I need someone? I’ll meet new people.

I’m too chunky to……..
….. once again, that’s not going to change if I don’t.

It’s too hot/cold to…..
…… grab a jumper or do swimming as your exercise.

It’s too late to……
…… I should have made time earlier but I didn’t so I will do something inside like jump on the mini tramp.

I don’t have time to….
…… I will make time. I will get up earlier. I will beat my excuses.

Why bother….
…… because if I don’t, how can I expect things to change?

This was a hard lesson to go through, I don’t think I’m through it yet. I’ve been thinking about it all week and it’s helping me keep motivated. I can do this and I will do this and my first step is to smash all these barriers I’ve put up. I need to make myself happy so that I can make others happy.

If I keep going the way I’m going then I’m still going to be in the place I am now.

Someone once told me that stupidy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Well not this little black ducky! I took a sneak peek on the scales this morning and if the number I saw today sticks around then I’ll be stoked. 110.1kg – that would be a loss of 2.1kg. After a disappointing shift yesterday and not burning as much as I’d hoped, I’m planning on smashing it today. I had 89km to run as part of my challenge. I have run 19.5 km so far so roughly 70km to go. Will really need to push to get this through in January – thank goodness for public holidays!! Speak soon xo
