Excuse #1: I’m too busy/I don’t have time
This is the first in a series of posts that expand on a presentation that I have on Slideshare
It’s only a very short slide deck, so please go and check it out if you have time and let me know what you think 🙂
I’m sure you can already guess that I’m about to tell you that the cries of “I’m too busy” or “I don’t have time” are just not true!
It’s time for some tough love, because excuses are great for making you feel better, but they don’t change anything.
You do have time.
The problem is that you think you don’t have time, so you don’t.
We all lead very busy lives these days and it’s all too easy to get caught up in the idea that you just don’t have time to cook, or find recipes, or buy all of the ingredients.
Do you feel like you barely make it through each week as it is? Rushing around to and from work and school and then running the kids around for their activities. You’re exhausted just thinking about it!
And as long as you continue to believe that, nothing will change.
The truth is that the people who do live healthy lifestyles aren’t any different from you. They’re not superhuman and they’re not less busy than you are.
They simply prioritise their health – they make it happen. You’ve probably heard the saying that we make time for what’s important to us. It’s true.
“And nothing should be more valuable than your health”.
I’m not saying that it’s easy; it’s not. I am saying that it’s a better choice, though.
And it’s empowering, because you’re taking back control and taking responsibility.
When you plan your weekly meals and shop, prep and cook accordingly, you’ll be more organised.
When you eat a variety of real, fresh foods every day that you’ve prepared yourself without excess additives and preservatives, you’ll have more energy to get through the day.
I’m not suggesting gourmet meals that take hours to cook, or buying superfoods that you can’t pronounce, let alone afford! It doesn’t have to be complicated, I promise. You can do it, you just need to figure out how!
So if you can understand that what I’m saying makes sense, but you don’t have a clue where to start – don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for!
I’ll help you work out what you need to do to suit you and your lifestyle. Everyone’s different and that’s what Wendy’s Way is based around – getting back to basics and finding what works best for you.
There isn’t one magic diet, or pill or quick fix that works for everyone. We all have different needs and we’re all at different stages in our lives. I understand that, which is why I can help you.
Whether that’s a 2-week quick start, a 4-week basic intro program or simply buying my e-Guide to work through on your own.
