Lies Everyone Tells Themselves.


I can stop drinking coffee cold turkey. It's the best way.

If I spend $300 at Whole Foods, I will easily lose weight. 

Staying up for two more episodes is fine. I won't be tired in the morning. 

These brand new shoes are the perfect thing to wear for this event that I will be on my feet for hours for. They won't hurt my feet at all. 
I'm going to save all of my money. Starting tomorrow, because I already bought coffee today. 
I'll remember this very important thing. I don't need to set a reminder for myself. 
If I spend all this money on this new planner, I will be more productive. 
Those two pushups I did that one time two weeks ago are definitely going to pay off.

I'll start ____ on Monday. 


I'll like this haircut more when I get home. 

What other lies to you tell yourself?

  1. These are great! Especially the one about the staying up for two more episodes... or "I'll just read one more chapter and then go to bed. I'll put the book down then." Nope.

  16. Basically every pair of pretty shoes I own is also a torture device, but I continue to remain in denial. Wine helps numb the pain!

  37. This was a good laugh!!! "I'll wake up earlier if I go to bed earlier" "It's banana bread, it's healthy because it has fruit in it!" "it's on sale, I'm saving money!"

  38. HAHA The planner and the Whole Foods ones! I've been guilty of the planner one so many times. Can't help it! And I was at Trader Joe's once and overheard a lady pull up a container of chocolate covered something or other and declared "these are so good because they're healthy and all-natural! I can eat them all!". HA! Chocolate covered anything, wherever it's from, is still chocolate-covered something ;)
