I am proud of myself. Last night I was at a party when the topic of working out came up. Mostly the topic was why people weren't doing it. I was proud that I kept my fat mouth in check.
Here's the thing...anybody trying to look my way for validation of their personal excuses for not doing it aren't going to get very far. You can't BS a master BSer. When it comes to bad eating choices and not exercising, there is nothing you can say to me, other than a legitimate health reason, that will make me want to put my arm around you and justify the excuses. Because there is not one single excuse you can pull on me that I haven't pulled in my lifetime. Not one. There is away around pretty much all of them, if you're willing to look for that way.
Even more than that, though, is you just have to look within yourself to decide what you want, and what you have to do to get there. I absolutely guarantee you that while the excuses may get you out of doing something, they will not get you to your goals. Period.
For the casual acquaintances, I just don't say much, unless they ask. But for my friends, be warned. Expect to be called out. You cant bullshit a master bullshiter.
