Earlier this week I had a tweet asking this:
I was expecting a lot of “hate” tweets from that and actually, I received the opposite. SO much agreement and “YES” and even “it’s better that way” kind of replies came my way.
So it got me thinking….not trying to political here, but are these people really “REAL”?!
Now, I am NOT saying that if you are lucky enough to have the luxury to sit around and blog all day and work out whenever you want and cook what ever your taste buds tell you to, that you are a flake. But lets be honest here, for the majority of us…the ones trying *real* hard to lose weight or be at a healthy weight…we do not have that luxury. But it’s awesome to see how some of you do it, and I know that I get inspiration from MANY of you.
But then there are some….some who just PISS me off to NO end!!
This is my blog so therefore I can say what I want to so here I go….
(Starting note: I have many friends who are vegetarians, vegans and clean eating folks…you who really know me know that this is not directed towards you. XO)
“Oh…you only eat nuts, vegetables, fruits and fats that are considered “healthy”. Well, that’s awesome! Good for you, seriously that is great. However, that is not me. I like nuts (yeah, I *really* like nuts ) veggies and fruit. I enjoy a nice avocado now and then myself or some good fish. BUT….
I also like meat. Red, semi bloody meat. And sometimes on the weekend I enjoy a :gasp: bagel to get me going and get me through the long ass list of things that I have to do over the 2 days that I have off since its really my only chance.
And I buy my man healthy snacks but also some of his favorites. And once in a while I like to take his Chili Cheese Fritos and portion them out (or not…oops) and enjoy them myself. Fritos…corn…it’s natural.
Sometimes I get a craving for something real bad like Ramen chicken noodle soup, or even MAC AND CHEESE….
Processed?? You f’ing bet!! Artificial?? I think I grow a new horn each time I swallow. But….I don’t care.
Why?? Because I’m not aiming for this so called “perfection”.. And I’m not judging you if you do choose to not eat these foods. Actually, I think we are on the same playing field….as long as you don’t judge me for having them every now and then I wont judge you for not having them. This is real life, am I right?!
Does society need to cut back on these foods?? Absolutely, but we are not going to eliminate them completely any time soon. So until then, why not find a healthy balance.
There is being inspiring, motivational, helpful and real and then there is being pretentious, arrogant, judgmental and just down right stupid.
So stop judging if someone picks up fries from McDonalds, has some Mac ‘N Cheese, or chooses regular yogurt over greek every now and then. It doesn’t make them any less “healthy” as you.
And for the love of god….no one cares to see 1000000000 pictures of you sweating and eating fruit. Get real. Because that is what inspires people to change. I can only guess what you do behind closed doors…”
What do I do?? Well….I’m off to get another beer Have a good weekend everybody. XOXO
