Excuses...

My fit-link lesson this week was about sabotaging your success and the excuses we make to avoid working out or eating properly. The takeaway from the lesson was "you are your priorities". Hmmmm... My excuse is, "I don't have time to eat properly". I would LOVE to have healthy meals but don't have time to make them so I eat out. I generally grab whatever is convenient. Sometimes thought is given to the nutritional content, sometimes not. It depends on how long it has been since my last meal. If I have waited too long to eat, Five Guys Burgers and Fries speaks to me like no other!

This week, I bought a tray of chicken breasts at the grocery store and popped them in the oven to bake Sunday morning. While those were cooking, I tossed together a pot of vegetable soup. It literally took me about 20 minutes to get all that going before I headed out to my tennis match. Now I have dinner for a week, just need to come home heat it up, steam some broccoli and I am good to go. Kind of pathetic that I use time as an excuse, when I see how long it actually takes to prep my food, isn't it? Sometimes you just need someone to point out the obvious...
