Do you make excuses for not eating healthily or working out? Are they really just excuses or symptoms of something else bothering you. Something deeper inside your mind that you probably either don't know is there (subconscious) or something you don't want to admit is an issue (like emotional eating, for example). I call these health roadblocks.
What's a health roadblock?
The critical among us would just pass them off as the same thing as 'excuses'. I think that's little harsh, as I've always thought many 'excuses' can often be signs of something we're struggling with deep inside.
