"X" the Excuses! A to Z Weight-Loss Tips for Long-Term Success - Tip X

"I don't have time to exercise."
"It's too expensive to eat healthy."
"I'm too busy with the kids' schedules."
Etc., etc., etc.

If you want to get healthy, then you need to make goals and plans, NOT excuses. 

Here are 10 simple tips to beat those excuses and get healthy:

  1. Jog or walk while the kids are at their sports practices, warm-ups, or games.
  2. Turn on some music and dance while you do housework.
  3. Do calisthenics, jump rope, or do jumping jacks while you watch your favorite TV program.
  4. It's not necessary to eat fancy, gluten-free, paleo diet foods and nutritional supplements from expensive grocers to be healthy. Much of the fad diets and supplements are unnecessary for most people anyway, and they don't work. Simple, whole, real foods are best, and tend to be cheaper.
  5. Take a walk with the family after dinner.
  6. Meet up with friends to go on a walk or a hike instead of having coffee or alcoholic beverages. 
  7. It only takes 5 minutes to pack a healthy lunch...really! Time yourself if you don't believe me! Make a PB and J sandwich, pack it with a banana, trail mix, and water, and bring this with you to work instead of eating out. This saves money and calories.  
  8. Play with the kids! Join in the fun and play hide and seek, tag, shoot hoops, play soccer, ride bikes, etc. The kids will love it too!
  9. Walk or hike with the dog instead of sitting while your pooch plays at the dog park.
  10. Google some easy, quick, healthy recipes you can cook at home with the family. If everyone chips in, it will get done quickly and is much cheaper and healthier than ordering pizza.
Recipe ideas for cooking healthy on a budget 

When you find yourself making an excuse, find a way to beat that excuse. 
You are worth it!


  1. I just wanna thank you for sharing your information and your site or blog article nice that I’ve ever seen i like it i learn something today. I have also found something related information The Fat Loss Factor. Check it out.

    1. Here are 3 kick-butt bodyweight exercises you can do to burn fat,
      stay energized, and avoid overeating.

      Bodyweight exercises help you burn fat shockingly fast, without any
      fancy equipment.

      1) Any Single-Leg Exercise
      The pistol (single-leg squat to the floor) is the most advanced
      1-leg exercise. But you can also do assisted single-leg squats with
      a band, or onto a bench, or even with a Stability Ball between your
      back and the wall.

      If you aren't ready for single-leg squats, you can use Bulgarian
      Split Squats, Reverse Lunges, regular split squats, or lying 1-leg
      hip bridges if you are a beginner.

      2) Decline Push-ups
      These are harder than normal pushups, thanks to your elevated feet.
      And in this position, you can still use a close-grip to fatigue
      your triceps, a "piked-hip position" to build your shoulders, or
      even the Spiderman leg motion to work on your abs.

      3) Bodyweight Inverted Rows
      I choose these over chinups and pullups because bodyweight rows let
      your chest rest, while your back is strengthened. It's the perfect
      compliment to a pushup.

      Do 8-12 repetitions per exercise. Don't rest between exercises. Go
      through the circuit up to 3 times, resting 1 minute after each

      For a once-per-month challenge, do each exercise to failure in your
      final round through the circuit.
