5 Lame Excuses That Are Stopping You From Losing Weight
Have you been trying to lose that belly fat and double chin for a long time? And yet nothing has really worked. The reason may not be because you don’t know how to lose weight. Eating healthier, more nutrient-dense dishes with fewer calories, and exercising more often is the key to weight loss.
Is it possible that you have been exercising, but then you often order a cheesy pizza when you are slogging at the office? And that’s because you think you have been working too hard since the morning and feel like you deserve some reward? Yes, these are the struggles you have to face every day when you are on a weight-loss diet.
So here are all those lame excuses that are stopping you from losing weight, but you still make them every single day.
One Last Time:
This generally happens when you get a craving for chocolate, pizza, burger, everything that you should stay away from when you are on your weight loss journey. If you take it one last time, you’ll take another one the next day, and so forth. So instead of having one last time, start avoiding it from this time itself.
I’ll do it tomorrow:
This goes for everything; for diet, for a workout, or a new hobby that you want to develop. However, tomorrow never comes if you keep postponing it. The only way out of this excuse is to start doing, whatever you have to do, right now, right away. Go for a workout right now, make a smoothie right now, and repeat tomorrow. And keep your hands off that cookie!
“I have already bought it. I have to eat it before it goes bad.”
The first step to getting rid of this excuse is not to buy anything bad anymore. From cheese to chocolate, tiramisu, burger, everything is bad for you. The worse part is we don’t care about the fresh veggies lying in the fridge, but the 2-days old cheese pasta. So no matter if the broccoli is almost brown, the pasta needs to be finished first, because that will get stale.
I’m very __, I’ll do exercise tomorrow
Fill this up with anything that fits, busy, full, sad, mad, happy, anything, apart from the real reason, i.e., lazy.
Stop listening to that voice, which says let’s start from tomorrow because that voice is not your friend. It’s your enemy who wants you to be just as lazy as it is.
I worked out yesterday, so I need to rest today
Let’s see, you should exercise daily. Only if you are not feeling well – don’t, but if you are well, you should not make this excuse for not exercising. Just take it easy. If you did CrossFit or Pilates yesterday, do yoga today. Then do HIIT workout tomorrow. But move your body daily, as a 20-30-minute moderate-intensity exercise improves your immune function. It may be jogging, climbing stairs, skipping, walking at a fast place – whatever you can fit in your routine without any hassles. Just do it daily.
