Here is Part 1. Let’s jump right ahead to the excuses.
1. I don’t know how to cook.
Well, learn to cook. Remember folks, the tastiest and healthiest recipes are also the simplest and easiest ones. You spend hours watching TV and surfing the internet. How about spend a few seconds looking for easy recipes? The keyword here being ‘easy’. You know what, fuck it. I’ll do that too. Just freakin click this!
2. I eat out a lot. It’s impossible to eat clean.
I’ve dedicated an entire blog post about this. Read here.
3. My <insert body part here> hurts!
Let’s say your left ankle hurts. Either you can use that as a stupid excuse to sit on your ass or mayyyyybe you can work another body part! What can you do without aggravating the ankle injury? How about pushups, pullups, snatches, deadlifts, dumbbell/kettlebell swings, planks, twists, L-sits, tire flips, hammer smashdowns, cleans, presses? Shut up and get to work!
4. I fell off the wagon and just never got back.
The fact that you were ‘in the wagon’ at some point means that you know exercising and eating right is good for you. You fell off the wagon… well who didn’t? The point here is to not mess up and stay messed up. The point is to jump right back into the wagon as soon as possible so you’re not left behind smelling smoke!
So let’s say you are on a 12 week program but something comes up and you mess up by the end of week 4. Well, shit happens. Move the fuck on! Stop using the failure as an excuse to fail again. Take that as a lesson and come back stronger!
5. Your diet is extreme. I believe in moderation. I don’t buy these fad diets.
Let me ask you this. How sure are you that this ‘diet’ you are talking about is unnatural and/or a fad? I can make it super clear that you don’t know sqqqquat about nutrition. Can you prove that including grains, sugars and processed cat crap in your diet is beneficial in any bloody way? I’m up for a discussion/argument any day any time. Hit me up if you got the balls to defend you stupid hypothesis.
Like I said, many many more excuses to address. Will do it 5 at a time.
