With just under eight weeks to go until Christmas, the clocks having just gone back, the darker evenings and the focus turning to the festive season, I’m hearing more and more excuses on reasons why people can’t train, eat well, and why they can’t start making changes now.

I’ve heard all of these a million times before. Which one of the following excuses have you used?

Don’t have time. Too busy. Too much on.

My reply …

Make an appointment with YOURSELF in your diary and KEEP IT. We all have the same 24 hrs. A workout accounts for 4% of your day. So stop making excuses.

I can’t train because the kids are on holiday.

My reply …

The kids are always on holiday, or so it feels. Let’s make it work round the kids or even better – let’s involve the kids.

Want to lose a bit of weight first so just going on another crash diet, then I will start.

My reply …

You will just slow down your metabolism even further. How many of those have worked long term? Zilch. All your doing is making it harder on yourself to lose weight in the future.

Going on holidays soon so there’s no point starting before, I will just put it all back on.

My reply …

Lots of my clients actually lose weight on holiday. They know how to enjoy the right foods, make the right choices whilst eating out, and do a bit of the right exercise. It’s become a way of life for them.

I’ll start after Christmas, Easter, Halloween …

My reply …

Why wait? Just start now and stop making those excuses.

It’s too expensive, I can lose the weight myself.

My reply …

Obviously, everyone has differing budgets. Maybe you can lose weight yourself, but it’s like trying to cut your own hair. The right professional help is money well spent as you will get the look and results you want. I also offer group personal training at a reduced rate. Call me on 07748 298728 or email to find out more.

I have to put my family’s needs first.

My reply …

If you make your health your priority – you will be fitter, healthier, feel better about yourself, and be able to enjoy and look after your family a lot better. You’ll also be setting a great example to your children in terms of eating healthily, exercising and looking after yourself. You only have one body – look after it.

So what is stopping you? What excuses do you use? Call me on 07748 298728 or email and let’s start now.
