Excuse me??? Oh…. another excuse!

From the Coach… I might have heard this several times:

  • slept in
  • watch another episode of the Biggest loser
  • read three days’s worth of backlon on our Twitter feed
  • finished work
  • had dinner with friends
  • hit Target for some “essentials”
  • stared at the walls
  • couldn’t put the Facebook app down

Also, here’s a selective list of things you’ve eaten in the past instead of a clean meal:

  • cake
  • milk shake
  • mofongo
  • A Doritos Locos Taco Supreme
  • macaroni and cheese
  • pizza
  • donut
  • nachos
  • burger


On every single one of these occasion, we had a compelling reason why there was no possible way we could get to the gym or stomach another chick breast that day.

If you’re anything like us (and if you’re human, we’ll assume you are), battling the excuses your brain invents comes with the fitness territory.  Hopefully, like us, you’re successful in overcoming your brain into submission most of the time. Unfortunately, there are days for whatever reason, temptation is strong… how to overcome them.

Most Common Excuses

Your Excuse Your Rethink Your Action
Eating a big cheat meal will help me get over stress Bad nutrition will stress you more and undermine all your hard work. Your diet is never perfect; however, strive for it to be good. Keep cheat meals small and you can include them during the week.
I don’t have time to go to the gym News Flash!!! Really!! You don’t have to go tot he gym to get a workout. I have sent you exercises and you can get them done at home. Be active, walk after dinner and get things done.
It’s hard to get started I know that is true. Starting off the wagon is hard in anything you do in life. Once you are over the hump… you’ll do great! Keep yourself focused.
I’m injured. As long as your body has range of motion… you can exercise. You can exercise other parts of your body. Ask your coach on what approach you can take.
