A very nice blog!
I would like to comment on the article called "8
Thing Your Excuses Are Really Saying".
I personally like fitness and I do think people
should work out, however, it's always easy to blame
people for looking for excuses. It's true all the
things they say are excuses, but my personal experience
is that it is incredibly difficult to find the right

There are people who are actually lazy, overweight
and fitness should become their priority, however,
these people will definitely not be moved by the
article, because they will feel blamed. The person who
is giving advise is obviously someone who loves
exercising, so is not sympathetic to their lack of
I am giving you a rating of 7 because of the blaming
tone of this article. I don't think it's motivational,
otherwise, the blog is very nice. Well done! Keep it
