"The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful."  Matthew 13:22

This passage can relate to scenarios I see far too often in the health and fitness world.

People have good intentions to lose weight and improve their health but allow "thorns of the world" to keep choking out their chances for success.

The worries of life take front and center.  Things like house projects, errands and running like a crazy person trying to get your overscheduled kids to all their activities take precedence over the intention to improve health.

It reminds me of one of my friends who has a big weight loss goal but is letting a major remodeling project take over his life and consume him.

His nutrition is off and his workouts are getting more and more sporadic.  He is allowing this project to move him away - not towards - his goals.  

Then there's the deceitfulness of wealth. Always putting money first.  When work and money consume us this can be a slippery slope for your health and fitness. 

A few years ago I was trying to help a real estate agent that wanted to make some big changes in her health.

Unfortunately she was never able to move forward as she let her clients run her schedule.   She would drop everything (including our scheduled sessions) to be at their beck and call.  

This happened all the time and eventually she gave up working with me because she could not make the time.

Chasing commissions was a much higher priority than her health.

The last time I saw her, I could see her health situation had not changed.

Look. Life is always busy and there will be things constantly pulling you in different directions.

It's easy to let the busyness (thorns) be excuses for not being able to move forward. 

The problem with excuses is that they are like armpits...everyone has them and they ALL stink.  

Excuses don't move you forward. Action does.

The good news is that action doesn't require a ton of time in the gym and ultra restrictive eating.
