LOL TT! My girlfriend makes fun of me and calls me a drill seargent! I'm a no excuses kind of guy. Excuses get you nowhere!!! Unless of course you are hurt or injured, then I understand. Hey, I know I'm a hard ass but I do have some sympathy (grin).
I just hate people who make excuses! Especially the people who want these perfect physiques but don't want to put that extra effort to get their six-pack! Hey, if you want to just look ok or a little above average, then eat ok once in a while, eat only 3x a day and look average. Thar's fine by me! If you want to just be in decent shape then thats all you need to do. BUT, if you want to look perfect and be all jacked and ripped, you have to eat perfect, train perfect, and do everything perfect!!! You are not going to look like a greek god or goddess (unless you are a genetic freak!) by doing things half ass!
I hear these people all the time and it drives me freakin nuts! They say, "I want to have a 6-pack by the summer and be jacked!" OR MY FAVORITE: "I WANT TO BE TONED!" and I say this is what you have to do. And they're like "you want me to eat 6 times a day?!?!" "You want me to eat that much protein?!?" "You want me to eat fat?" I can't do all that! I don't have the time...and I'm not giving up my carbs! and I'm like well you are never gonna look the way you want!!! Then they get all defensive and aggravated! If it was easy to look great then everyone would look great! Nobody said looking great was easy!!! It's a lot of hard work, dedication and a TREMENDOUS amout of discipline!
If I get out of shape, I know why it happens. It's because I screwed up on my diet and wasn't "dialed in". I don't make excuses why I ate bad, and I know if I want to look good again, my diet has to be "dialed in"!
What drives me nuts is when a person posts a question about changing their physique and they get a 1000 posts saying to eat 6 meals a day, 1.5x your bodyweight in protein, limit carbs, eat healthy fats, etc, etc...they make every excuse known to man why they can't do it, yet everything they tried up to that point has failed. But they won't take the 1000 people's posts advice who had great success but they'll take the advise of 1 bonehead genetic freak who can eat whatever he wants, whenver he wants and still look good, he'll take his advice because its easier. They won't get results and then they will post again a couple of months later that they tried everything and still look like crap and they wonder what went wrong!
EITHER DO IT RIGHT AND LOOK FANTASTIC OR MAKE EXCUSES AND LOOK MEDIOCRE! It's as simple as that!
sorry for the rant TT! :o)
