I forgive myself for lacking the motivation and self-discipline when it comes to my nutrition and fitness. My excuse is ice cream tastes too good on a hot summer day and takeout is easier than cooking a healthy meal after a busy day. My excuse is I have too much on my plate to go to the gym and exercise regularly. My excuse is mental health messes with my motivation levels.
My excuse is…
I accept that I have made the choices I have. I am accountable for my actions.
Reality is, nobody, not even my daughter or wife are as invested in me as I am.
If I truly want to change I must clearly define my “why” and practice the self-discipline I know it will take to work. It will not be easy. It will take work.
I need help. I need support. I’m strong enough to realize I can’t do everything on my own.
