Over the course of the last few weeks, I have been sent emails, instant messages and had conversations with folks who are tired of making excuses for why they have lived a less than healthy lifestyle. As someone who has had a similar problem in the past, I can honestly tell you that you have to look at why you are making excuses. If you constantly eat unhealthy, do you consume it because it's easy, inexpensive or you don't know how to plan or cook? If you chose not to exercise, is it because you can't afford a gym, you don't like doing it, or you need encouragement and support? Take a look at the reasons as to why you are not achieving your goals and develop a plan to change it.
Regardless of what your excuse is, please know that there is no better time to start living a healthier lifestyle than today. Start with small changes as they will add up over time. Enlist the help of family and friends to support you on your journey and know that I am here to offer help and encouragement. You can do it!
