Have you ever found yourself saying, ‘tomorrow I’ll go to the gym’? How about the infamous, ‘I’ll start my new workout plan after the holidays’. In truth there will always be some reason to put off working out and going to the gym. It will never be convenient, there won’t ever be ample amount of time, and you won’t be less busy next month.

So why tell ourselves these little lies? Because it makes us feel better about ourselves thinking that we are going to do something, even if we truly have no intention of starting.

When we talk to people we can tell them how ‘we are going to be starting soon’. It allows us to save face.

Let’s face it, if you are not actually doing it, no one cares about your talk.

So what do you do? Quit putting it off. Quit making excuses. Quit waiting to feel like it. You will never feel like it and if you wait for that, the next decade will pass you by with no change. I mention in this week’s podcast how the excuses we create in our minds can keep us stuck forever if we continue to let them have their rule.

Just go. Get your ass out of bed. Go after work regardless of how tired you are. Don’t come home and sit on the couch. Change and immediately leave again. Don’t give yourself any opportunity to fall into an excuse. If you need some accountability check out our private Facebook group and get plugged into our community.

  1. Love this. I hear this multiple times over the year in my job. “Yeh I’m going to start PT.” “Yeh I’m coming out for a run next week.” “Yeh I’m joining the gym soon.”

    Initially I used to chase these people and give them encouragement and then I started to realise I was wasting my life on the uncommited. These people will often never change. They kid themselves that they will, but they rarely do. It still really frustrates me but that soon passes. These days I only work with people who do what they say they’re going to do.

    I’ve no space for time wasters anymore. If they want it they can come to me and I’ll help them but they have to turn up first.
