Week 3 of P90X/Insanity

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

WOW! I am sore today. I didn't do the workout yesterday that was on the calendar for the program, just wasn't in the mood for it. I did Max Recovery instead, it was hard and I'm feeling it today. I pushed through it and did today's workout as schedule...cardio workout. I do feel great though. I ate on plan, no snacks that weren't suppose to be...well I had a small glass of chocolate milk after dinner instead of M&M's...I consider that a win...10 M&M's would of been more like 30, so 1 8oz cup of chocolate milk...way better emoticon

So today at OLD bootcamp instructor (her 2 boys are in our program) see's me in the hallway. She stops me and asked how I was doing..blah, blah. She then asked me what program I'm doing. Told her I finished my first round of Insanity but this time I'm doing P90X/Insanity hybrid program. She says "hmmmm" looks me up and looks me down and says to me "so how's it working for ya?" What? I about busted out into my birthday suit right there and wanted to to scream at her HERE, LOOK! This is how it's working for me!! Now that could of been taken 2 ways...she could of be truly asking me how it was going... BUT it was all how she asked that question. She didn't care how it was working for me, she made me feel like it wasn't working at all!! I started to doubt everything that I have accomplished. I got home from work tore off my clothes and weighed myself and of course the scale is going to read higher...I weigh first thing in the mornings, not at 2:30 in the afternoon. A few months back she made some comment to me that left me scratching my head. I walked away thinking...did she just rip on me, make a snide comment about me doing Insanity and telling me how it's not going to give me the results I'm looking for??? Now again today, she had that comment about how's it going for me (remember the delivery of it said it all) emoticon WTH is her problem? For one thing, she has totally and completely lost me as a client. I will not be going back to her--ever! Would like to punch her in the face just once and run like a mad woman after that. Unfortunately after her comment, I was left stunned and wasn't really able to say much other than it's working great for me! That I'm enjoying the mix of the two workouts! Ohhh but trust me I wanted to say sooo much more. But with me being at work, her being in MY workout place and with kids around...had to keep it nice emoticon

Going to keep working. I have my challenge getting set to start on November 1st. I'm looking forward to. I dread this time of year from Halloween-New years has been so horrible for weight gain for me in the past, I've gained 10 or more pounds in years past just in that time frame!! NOT this year darn it, NOT this year!! So many goals I have set.

    That just was plain unprofessional on her part.... talk about bad form. She should be encouraging people to do ANYTHING regardless of if it is what she can provide you or not!
    Keep up the good work and hold your head high!

    The hardest part of a situation like that is letting it go and not letting it affect you. Don't let her or her comment stay in your head. You are doing great! I'm glad you are enjoying the hybrid program. I'm also going to do that starting in a few weeks. I just wrapped up Insanity and am enjoying a little rest.

    Yuck. Trainers who rip on programs that aren't theirs are obviously insecure. When I was teaching and I'd run into a former client and ask what they were doing, I would always, ALWAYS tell them it was great that they were staying active with something they enjoyed, and encourage them to keep it up. This woman sounds more like a fitness UN-professional. Good riddance!

    Wow - totally uncalled for. Definitely a reflection of her bad attitude and no reflection on you or your progress. When things like that happen to me I always leave thinking thank goodness I'm not living a miserable life like that person obviously is with a miserable attitude like that!

    Ditch her for good! Let me know if you need an alibi! emoticon

    By the way, where did the sarcastic phrase, "How's that going for you?" originate?
