There were other issues as well. I didn't work out but only once this past week. I ate fairly well, but was over my allotted calories for Wednesday and under my calories for the two days prior. There wasn't a ton of food preparation going on either.
I have been thinking a lot this week about excuses. I'm certainly a pro at making them. I can always seem to find a reason (ie., excuse) NOT to exercise or eat right. Housework to do, a meeting to prep for, a meeting to attend, grocery shopping, too tired, that cheeseburger was calling my name, just plain don't want to, the ungracious visitor...you get the point. I am an A+ excuse maker, maybe that is why I never reached my goals.

"I attribute my success to this:I never gave or took an excuse." ~ Florence Nightingale
"We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse." ~ Rudyard KiplingI know that I don't want to fail, so I have got to stop making excuses. I have got to make the time and do what needs to be done. And maybe next week, I'll be shouting from the mountain top again.
