I feel it’s my duty as an advice-giving fitness professional to be authentic. I’m not going to sit high atop my blogging throne and claim perfectionism in my own fitness & health pursuits. And I’m certainly not going to wag my finger at you with condescending pity when I hear that you’ve made some not-so-healthy choices.
What good would that do? No one walks the straight and narrow 100% of the time. Even those well-intentioned folks (like me!) who strive to help others improve their journey toward better health.
Nah, I’d rather divulge my mistakes and imperfections to you. So that you can feel like you’re not alone! And so that you can feel supported in picking yourself up again and again.
Those agonizing thuds that happen when you fall down from your high points WILL happen again and again. Because you can’t always be motivated and inspired and devoted and flawless. Life happens. Your internal drive ebbs and flows. You find absolute joy from all aspects of life – and then sometimes you feel so heavy and lethargic. Stress leads you down forbidden pathways. You make a couple unfortunate choices and ‘POOF!’, you become addicted to a bad habit.
