Truth Bomb Tuesday

  I like to talk about the things other people won't talk about.

Have you noticed in the health and fitness industry that you see the same things being repeated all the time, just by different people? Yeah, me too.

SCR has a strict no bs policy. So, without further ado...Todays truth: A "fit" person eating something 'unhealthy' doesn't give you permission to as well.

TRUTH BOMB

Here's the deal, have you ever seen a really ripped chick on instagram down a burger + fries + milkshake and a whole row of oreos in one sitting then post a picture of her abs in the morning and you're like:

What the heck?

Are you real?

Then you go mosey into town and your friends want to grab dinner and you're first like "Oh salad please" then, Sally Sue Ripped To Shreds from IG pops in your head and you remember that she ate a burger and woke up lean, so now you'll do the same.

Hey, I'm not pointing fingers here. I think at some point this thought has graced us all.

If you ever see me eat something like ice cream *gasp*, just because I have a title of "Personal Trainer" doesn't mean my body does something magical with it and turn that straight into glorious muscle..sadly. So, don't fool yourself. Don't let what someone in the fitness industry does dictate how you eat, or "grant permission" for you to indulge.

The choice to indulge is up to you, on what you want, and when you want. It's so important to always remember to keep the focus on your own journey though. The people you see eating crazy food and waking up seemingly unaffected, well--who knows. Maybe it was a reefed day for this person, maybe they are someone who can eat a ton and not physically be affected (on the outside--insides are going crazy). Whatever the reason they have, it doesn't pertain to you.

As you decide what meals you're about to consume, eat for your body, what works for you, and what makes you feel good. No one else's choices give you permission for anything--only you do.

Happy Monday Friends! I wanted to share with you all some things I'm loving recently.

Strawberry EVERYTHING.

Put it on everything..OH MY GOSH. I'm loving my optimum nutrition gold standard whey and my strawberry cream cheese. The cream cheese on Ezekiel bread toast is the bomb.com.

Kodiak Cakes Pancake and Waffle Mix

If you follow me on instagram you know I've been having either waffles or pancakes made from this mix DAILY. They are just so fluffy and delicious. This week I made maple bacon pancakes, with actual bacon cooked in them. It was AMAZING. Recipe is on my instagram: @strongchicksrock. Also did some double chocolate chip ;)

The Sauna

Anyone else obsessed with the sauna? It's my new favorite way to end my workout. I love sweating and I feel like its 100% helping my complexion.

Magic Oil

Ok, so this awesome women reached out to me on instgram when I posted a picture of me getting electric stim on my low back. I've been having some serious low back pain due to my anterior pelvic tilt. She commented and said she had a blend of essential oils called "Magic Oil" that would alleviate my pain. Growing up with my super crunchy nana who would make us chew garlic, use oils and ward of fluoride like the devil..I knew I had to jump on this as I'm all for a holistic approach to pain management and health in general. I just got it a few days ago and OH MY GOSH.

I kid you not this lives up to its name 100%. I rubbed it on (my skeptical husband as my witness) and felt almost immediate relief. I've used it on my knee, my shoulder and my back the past few days and I can happily say I've been pain free! You can buy it here.
