The Excuse Mind

To make enhancements in your life it is very important first acknowledge your weaknesses. Sure character traits simply appear to be constructed into us. It might be potential to disregard issues for awhile however ultimately our hardwired flaws meet up with us. One factor I’ve been taking extra discover of recently is that when I’m confronted with any state of affairs that deviates from my regular routine, my intuition is to make an excuse to eat.

After indulging fairly a bit over the vacations, Daniel and I received again into our regular more healthy routine within the new yr. However final week once I heard there was a snow storm approaching my first thought was, “We higher go refill on snow day snacks!” The information that frozen water vapor can be falling from the sky a while within the close to future was sufficient for me to utterly overlook about my well being objectives. In my “excuse mind” this line of considering made good sense.

For those who look exhausting sufficient (and consider me, I’ve) you’ll be able to all the time discover an excuse…a pal’s birthday, an extended weekend, an invite to dinner, a brand new taste of Oreos, a hectic day, excellent news, dangerous information…Arbor Day. You possibly can all the time use some twisted logic to discover a cause to eat. However should you can acknowledge your tendency to do that, it is going to be simpler to keep away from.

Subsequent time you end up making an excuse to do one thing opposite to the objectives you’ve set for your self—even when it looks like a very good cause—take a breath and actually give it some thought. Is it a great determination or is it “excuse mind” taking up?

What are a few of your triggers for making excuses? What’s the silliest excuse you might have used to interrupt out of your wholesome dwelling objectives?
