Shanee Proves Excuses Are Overrated

You know my take on excuses. They’re easy to make up but… failures have bucketfuls of them compared to successes who don’t. That said, here’s an AWESOME story about how one of our very own How Do I Get Fit team members was given every reason to come up with an excuse for missing a workout but decided to take her obstacle and knock it down with the sledgehammer of iron will, an eye on her goal and accountability through determination.

Here’s the setup: P90X is a DVD program. DVDs require a TV. TVs require power. So what happens when your power goes out? For a lot of people, that’s where the excuse would start: Now power, no workout. For the awesomely determined Shanee, that’s where her motivation began. From an email I received this morning:

“This morning I wake up at 5:30 to workout and my power went out 10 minutes later! But I was already into the stretches and fully awake so I just brought over a bunch of flashlights and worked out in the dark. Thank God I have my worksheets and my P90X Guidebook so I didn’t need my DVD player to be working. “

THAT’S determination.

You have all the tools you need to succeed with P90X or any other Beachbody program you’re using to get into awesome shape and improve your life. Shanee took those tools and made a quart of Rest and Recovery lemonade out of the lemon the Power Company threw her way at 5:30 in the morning.

Inspiration? Pretty much.

Next time you think you have a good excuse to skip your workout, think of Shanee and keep your eye on your goal. If Shanee can nail a P90X workout early in the morning, in the dark with flashlights and no TV… I’d bet you can find a way to push play, too.

    That’s some real dedication and that’s what it takes. Skipping one workout is giving yourself permission to skip the next one and then the one after that. No excuses.
