If I’ve referred you here, congratulations! You’ve been diagnosed with an acute case of WHINY BABY syndrome. Waaaahhhhh!!! These workouts are hard. Sticking to your diet is hard. You don’t “feel like” working out. Booooo Hoooo!
The remedy ….
I’m prescribing you a heavy dose of prescription strength “SUCK IT UP”! It’s to be taken 3 times per day on an empty stomach, for the next 90 days. Doctor’s orders.
Have a nice day :-).
Oh, and don’t forget to BRING IT!!!
If you’d like some reference material to read while you get over your current state of whining and complaining, might I suggest the following articles =
Brushed up on some of the excuse zone tips Coach... thanks :) not that I was on the cusp of skipping a workout or anything... went to an Imagine Dragons concert thursday night and then up late last night for valentines day... there were fun things to do but just throws me off my normal routine... great feeling after killing a workout!!
i love this zone. lol It keeps me in check. I could make excuses to not do my work outs but i don't i committed to this program and if i am not working it than i am letting myself down and i wont do that. I have been sick, i have had small injuries. It would be easy for me to say that im gonna stay in bed for the day but i wouldnt be able to live with myself. lol. I have goals and i am gonna make it. it has been a workout thats for sure. I havent always been able to do what everyone else had in the video but i modify and keep going. now i can do everything they can do and i am finishing zone 2. if i can do it everyone can. You have to really find your motivation and move with it. Most of all believe in yourself.
I have arthritis and multiple tears in my right shoulder. Once the Veterans Administration does my surgery and rehab, I will BRING IT....again.
Holy weight loss Batman. I started off 2 months ago changing my diet after getting to 294lbs. In the two months I was able without working out to 276lbs. I started Insanity a week and a half ago and was not weighing myself daily so I did not get discouraged right off the bat. Decided today to give it a shot and I have lose 11lbs in a week and a half. I know I won't get as drastic a drop for a this entire 60 days but made me feel amazing.
So going into getting started these past two - three months I have changed my diet and have not cheated so on my way I work and decided hey I have do e a great job and the new steak egg and cheese sandwich sounded like a good idea. Well apparently that was wrong a half an hour after my body was in full revolt. Learned today I really really need to becareful because my body is not willinv to take things I have eaten to get to my size.makes me realize how bad that stuff is.
Hey Coach, I'm wirting because I seem to be in some sort of a slump. I was doing great from December through January and I slowed in February when I went for my routine check up and came up with an abnormal EKG. I was told to stop lifting any weight and strictly do cardio. Well because I got nervous I stoppped completely and didn't continue my workouts. Fortunately, I have been cleared by the cardiologist but, I am having problems getting back into it. I put back on about 4 lbs since then and I have gotten back into some bad habits. I have no excuses and know I just need to "bring it" but, I can't seem to get motivated. I've been tired and cranky lately and I attribute it to the return to my old bad habits. Any suggestions to help me get a kick start?
Hey Coach Wayne, I'm feeling really sore after my first day of P90X. Any suggestions on how to relieve the pain. (My first time working out intensely with weights)
This forum has been going thru my mind at 4:45 am each morning this week as I get started on the X. Instead of hitting snooze, I can hear you saying "just do it!" Thx!
I have had my left kneecap relocated with cadaver tendons and i'm left with little cartilage in that knee (if I was not in my 30's it would have been replaced on the spot)... The other needs the same surgery and I still bring it every day. On top of that I have arthritis (or so my doc said) in the left knee as well. I have used my knees as an excuse for to long, I just have to put my big boy pants on and lose this weight! Thanks Coach Wayne for all of the info on your site, it has really helped me.
AWESOME!! will copy this to hang up at work for when people bitch and complain as they scarf cheeseburgers!!
This is awesome!!! Now I have somewhere (a link) to send my lazy friends when they need a kick in the backside.
Oh my goodness, I just about peed my pants. Hilarious! I'm so thankful that you actually say that. My pastor at church says all the time, "If nothing changes, then NOTHING CHANGES!" If you want it bad enough, you WILL do it. Period.
Suck it up!!! If a ripped body came so easy wouldn't everyone have one?! Dig deep and push hard!!! No excuses!!
Found a video that sums it up. What's your excuse? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obdd31Q9PqA
LOL. I almost felt of my chair. I said: "EXCUSE ZONE.." I thought we had none and short enough, we have NONE!
@Darkhand44 Awesome job!
@Gil_1975 Take that crankiness out on your workouts! Get after it and "do your best and forget the rest." Glad you have a clean bill of health.
Matt, just push through. Everyone is sore! Make sure to stay hydrated, do the warm up and cool downs, and if you have R&R it can really help too.
