I do not accept your excuse

What is the definition of an excuse?

Excuse = something that is offered as an explanation in order to obtain forgiveness or justify action we know is unacceptable.

    What is the key point in my definition of an excuse? It is the fact that we know that our action (or inaction) is unacceptable. Lets be honest and upfront for a moment (alright, I always am).

    Everyone knows that doing little to no physical activity is not good for them. We all know that eating processed and deep fried foods is not good for us. But we continue to do it anyway and make excuses for it. Becasue that is what an excuse is, asking for others (or ourselves) to forgive us for our actions that we KNOW we should not be partaking in.

     What are some of the most common excuses I am innundated by? By far the most common one I hear is that people do not have the time to fit in activity. This is simply not possible. Everyone I know is caught up on at least one TV show or regularly watches or reads a news source.

So I have finally come to a realization that many of my clients and all of the participants in my classes came to long, long ago: I like to rant. Preferably to a captive audience.

This made me think that maybe I should write all of my rants down somewhere so that everyone could enjoy them all the time, hence the birth of my book (no its not done yet). Why is it not done yet? Because every-time I start writing a new section or  something I have already written, I get myself lost n tangents as I start thinking.

 This blog is my attempt to alleviate all of that! It is my place to share information with everyone, dispel some fitness myths, answer questions, gather ideas, and hopefully create an area where people can come for information and discussion.

Everyday I hear something or see something that provokes a new rant-able topic and I am hoping that by sharing this with you I can help at least a few people navigate their path to health and fitness.
