As I recently celebrated my first decade at the coal face of fitness and nutrition, I have been reflecting on all those whose lives I/we have changed, mainly for the better!
But, as you would expect, it is not always smooth sailing. To work, personal training, and exercise in general, needs to by physically hard and challenging. Sometimes people just can’t face it. Sometimes they have done the exercise but perhaps have not been totally honest about calories. Or cakes. Or pizza. Here are some of the excuses that we have come across in the past 10 years. Straight from the horse’s mouth as it were.
This running is making me fat
There is a lot of swine flu about, I think we should cancel
I hardly eat anything
It’s raining I’m going to cancel
It’s too sunny I’m going to cancel
I think I have an under active thyroid
I think I have an overactive thyroid
I’m genetically programmed to be fat
Isn’t chocolate good for you? I read that in the Daily mail.
But it was an all inclusive
These squats are making me fat
I got bitten by a mosquito so can’t exercise today
My husband doesn’t like me losing weight
But this chocolate bar has “Nature” on the front
This yoghurt is low in fat
I have a vitamin D deficiency
I think I have big bones
But I’ve never had a flat tummy
Wine is good for you – I read it in the daily Mail
I have a really low metabolic rate
