Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure. ~Don Wilder and Bill Rechin
I've been making lots of excuses about why I can't get round to doing this properly, here are some of them:
I've got Crohns disease
I smoke and I can't manage giving up and going 100% raw so I'll never get the real benefit
My husband and foster daughter are meat eaters
I've got a virus and feel unwell
I can't afford all that fruit
I'm nearly 52 and have always been a meat eater so it's going to take me longer to change my bad habits
Shall I go on? No point really is there!
Maybe you don't like your job, maybe you didn't get enough sleep, well nobody likes their job, nobody got enough sleep. Maybe you just had the worst day of your life, but you know, there's no escape, there's no excuse, so just suck up and be nice. ~Ani Difranco
I was thinking about all these things and suddenly realised I'm talking BS to myself, just making excuses about why I can't succeed, talking myself into failure, scared I might even get fit and happy and that it would affect my life.
How strange to use "You only live once" as an excuse to throw it away. ~Bill Copeland
So I googled 'NO MORE EXCUSES, saw these quotes and realised I was guilty of all of them.
I decided to just do it, it's only eating fruit and veg for crissakes - not exactly difficult, I've always got a steady supply of ripe bananas in the house, always got a counter filled with fruit and a fridge filled with veg and salad stuff - all I need to do is EAT IT - LOTS OF IT, it's not rocket science is it!
The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the other person finds an excuse. ~Author Unknown
I know the detox after nearly 52 years is going to be painful - that's one of the excuses I've used not to push on through as I get really bad migraines each time I try to go 100%, but this time I've timed it to coincide with the weekend - infact the headache is starting already - if necessary I'll go to bed with lots of water to drink and not get up again until it's passed.
Success is a tale of obstacles overcome, and for every obstacle overcome, an excuse not used.
NO MORE EXCUSES - I WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE I WANT TO AND BECAUSE I CAN - I'M DOING IT :-)
