If yes, you’re probably putting off getting started on a new healthy routine and it’s time to beat the excuses. Today on the blog I’m talking about how to overcome the 3 most popular dieting excuses that stop us girls from living a healthy lifestyle.
So what inspired me to write this blog post? Each day I talk to girls that really want to change their lifestyle and get in a fit and healthy shape, but they tell themselves a list of reasons to avoid getting going with a healthy routine. Though we all know that taking care of our health and body is very important, there’s a list of most common dieting excuses that always seem to get in our way. There’s a high chance that the next top 3 dieting excuses will sound familiar to you – just like they used to be for me. I want to help you on how to overcome them and start making the best turn around for your overall well-being.
Excuse nr 1: I’m busy, no time!
It requires effort to change your lifestyle and effort takes time. It’s all about MAKING time. If you truly want to realize that healthy and fit body you’ll have to stop telling yourself reasons you can’t. These reasons are really just excuses and I have the best tips, tricks and tools to help a busy bee with eating healthy and staying active. Read here how I have successfully beaten my busy-bee excuses.
Excuse nr 2: I don’t like healthy food
Often I hear that people hate vegetables, don’t like oats (without a sugar-overload on top) or simply can’t eat low-fat quark plain. Healthy food can taste good – very good- and you can pimp each healthy meal to your personal taste. If you don’t like your healthy meals it’s simply because you aren’t cooking them right. It’s time to figure out what you really don’t like about it. Is it the texture of quark? Mix it up into a smoothie. Is it the flavor of oats? Pimp it with cacao powder, cinnamon powder, fruit or honey. Are your veggies boring? Add seasonings and spruce your veggies with pepper, garlic, a dash of lemon juice, olive oil or spring onion. Try to incorporate the food you don’t like into another dish you do like. Don’t let the fear of “strange” and “dislike” food hold you back from getting in your best shape ever and find here all my absolute favorite and delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacky time.
Excuse nr 3: Next Monday I’ll cut the crap and START..again..

Stop it right here, right now. When your agenda is pulling you back, there will never be a good moment to start. It will be like excuses after excuse, so START NOW! I hope that my article will make you realize that excuses keep you stuck where you are and old habits die hard. If you really want to shed the weight today is the day to recognize that you are capable of making a change – and make it matter!
Don’t let another day pass you by without driving yourself to become a healthier and happier girls. Take action to regain control over your lifestyle!
