Other than New Year’s, there is probably no other time during the year that motivates us to make a fresh start like springtime does. When the warm breezes start blowing, we want to throw open the windows and let the rebirth all around us revitalize our homes and our spirits.
Because it seems natural to clean out the old during this time of year, it’s a great time to come face to face with our excuses for not getting fit and healthy. Excuses pile up just like the clutter that we accumulate in our houses, but it’s time to come clean.
What is your excuse for not choosing health?
I don’t have the time to eat keto: This is one of the most common excuses. You are busy. You have to work all day (or all night), you have to get the kids to school, you have to cook dinner, go to the grocery store, mow the lawn, change the oil in the car—there is simply no time!
But I mean, really? It’s time to start putting yourself first and your health is the best self-care out there!
Consider this. When you start eating better, you start feeling better. You start looking better. This makes you want to continue to eat better. This will motivate you to find the time for yourself because you won’t want to let that feeling go!
I don’t like to eat keto: Again, a pretty common excuse. But I won’t let you off the hook! Healthy can be delicious, fulfilling, quick and easy. All you have to do is put in a little effort and the payoff is huge! Get leaner, more energetic, healthier, and happier!
I don’t have the energy to eat keto: Eating healthier gives you tons of energy. It’s like putting gas into your car, when you fuel your body properly you’ll run well. It is hard at first, but when you make the change or even replace a few things you normally eat to something nutritious, you’ll feel the results of that choice.
It’s just not the right time for me to start eating keto. “I’ll start when…
- Summer vacation starts
- The kids go back to school
- I get my house organized
- Work lets up
- I have more time
- Life calms down
- The kids get older
- The weather warms up a little
- The weather cools down a little
- Someday…just not today
Trust me, there is no perfect time. You just have to start.
Surrender your excuses!
Make a clean sweep and toss those excuses out. Everybody has excuses. Excuses are easy. But plenty of people have started keto and had it change their lives. That doesn’t mean it is easy for them. It just means that they love feeling energetic, strong, healthy, and empowered enough to push in and get it done.
You can be that way too.
I hope you found this to be a little motivating and re-instills your want to keto on.
