No Excuse for Dancers

by Wednesday, January 17, 2018
We all have 24 hours in the day… and we all have financial constraints and a budget to follow. The reason time and money is an easy excuse to avoid workouts is because it doesn’t require an explanation or much thinking to tell someone–including yourself. It flows off the lips easily and stops further conversation almost immediately.

But when we use excuses, what we are really saying is that not accomplishing our goals is not important enough for us to find a way to make it happen.  If you REALLY wanted to lose weight, if it was THAT important for you, there would not be an excuse in the world to prevent it from happening. 

I encourage you to take steps to change your life. It takes hard work. It takes commitment. It takes dedication. It takes desire. It even takes a little failure. But, you can achieve your goals and so much more if you just decide to change. Here a list of our lies we tell ourselves to prevent life changes:


There are plenty of statistics showing that a lot of time is spent watching TV, playing video games or visiting various social networking sites. If you have time to go online, you have time to train. And I haven’t even addressed time spent sitting at Starbucks or wasted time that you can’t seem to track where it goes. MAKE THE TIME!

You need to SCHEDULE time for your daily training program. 


This always comes up whenever someone makes an excuse as to why they can’t get fit, lose weight or improve their health.

First, you have to stop thinking of the COST or EXPENSE of getting fit, losing weight or improving your health and instead start thinking of it as an INVESTMENT! An INVESTMENT into your body and your life, it will become a part of your LIFESTYLE.

You will no longer say, “I can’t afford it.” You will FIND a way to make it happen! 

Investing in your health is crucial as neglecting it now will cost you far greater later on in the form of doctor visits, prescription drugs, surgeries, emergency room visits and much more due to poor health and diseases that can be prevented by nutrition and training.


It seems too hard so I can’t stick to the change. Tell yourself if other people can do it, so can you! But there is a discomfort to change, the mind wants comfort and is afraid of changes.


Sure, you can always do it later …but your later self will feel the same way. Why will the later self will be more disciplined?


Ask yourself, it is just one time? Make a rule: never ever believe in a one time excuse.


True. You don’t feel like working hard. Who does? Everyone is able to work hard even when we are not in the mood. Smile and do it!


Ohh yes, me too. I still did my primitive squats today and cleaned the kitchen and made this newsletter and talked over the phone with a few people. Unless you are sick, this is not a excuse :-)!
