INTERNAL - Talking yourself into not doing something, "I'm too tired", or my favourite one... "I'll wait till I'm a little fitter".
EXTERNAL - (these are very controllable) "I'm too busy", "it is too cold", "I'll start next week".
UNCONTROLLABLE EXCUSES - A family crisis or a sick child. These are really the only REAL excuses for you not to start or continue your new lifestyle.
