Are you busy making excuses but too busy to get what you want?


  • I am too busy
  • I have no time
  • I never know what to eat
  • I am confused
  • I don’t like vegetables
  • I don’t like exercise
  • I have no willpower
  • I am too tired!

If you are guilty of this then the bad news is YOU are holding yourself back!  It’s your fault you are not moving forwards.  In other words YOU are giving yourself permission to fail!

The good news is YOU can push yourself forwards and DO IT!


Simple!  Make the decision to change your language.  Instead of stating a problem, ask a question and make a commitment to do it by changing the words.

For example, instead of:

I am too busy to fit in exercise

This states the problem and gives you permission to not seek a solution.  Try asking yourself:

How can I make time to exercise and feel great?

When you have thought about the solution and found a way around it, then state what you will do:

I WILL get up 30 minutes earlier to walk before work and I WILL use the stairs instead of the lift.

By eliminating words like try, hope, maybe, might (which are fluffy and non-committal) you will start to THINK differently and pretty soon the actions will follow……. and then what?


Big love, small tummies!
