Who is cheating on you?

While enjoying some down time with some friends, a hypothetical question came up. If you knew someone was cheating would you tell? It brought about a lively discussion and a few confessions. It also made me consider how I cheat. No, not how I cheat on my spouse. But how I defraud myself. Every time I make an excuse for why I can not go to the gym, I am conning my health. Every time I procrastinate I take away from my future productivity.
Sometimes I feel like I have gotten away with cheating. However, like cheating on your spouse, all cheating will catch up with you.  It is only a matter of time before the little cheats become big deceptions. Sure you can cheat on your workout regiment occasionally, but if you are habitually skipping, it will start to show. This is true for any goal.
The more often you cheat the easier it is to justify doing it again. With enough practice, you can forget you ever had a goal. Are you a cheater? You wouldn’t cheat on your spouse? Why are you cheating on you?
