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.
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.
