This week an article was released, stating how a labelling system, which suggested the amount of exercise needed to burn off certain foods 🤬
Firstly. Exercise is not a punishment for what you have eaten. It is for your health and wellbeing, with the bonus that is does burn calories should you need to (aka Christmas, and you’ve inhaled a Yule log)
Secondly- its not even correct. People are all different in the amount of calories they would burn for certain exercises 😖 So it isn’t even factual.
So please. If you’ve read this article, ignore it. Track your calories of what you have eaten and assess against your goal. Fat loss= deficit needed. Weight gain = surplus needed. Then exercise alongside for physical and mental health and fitness. 💪🏼👌🏼
About a year ago, I got an email from a disgruntled lady explaining why everything I post on IG is dishonest...
“All you do is drink wine and eat pizza. How is that promoting health? You’re lying to your followers and you should be ashamed of yourself.”
I kept my cool and explained that, no... I didn’t always drink wine and eat pizza. MOST of the time I’m eating whole, nutritious foods and making mindful portion choices.
Then she came back with, “well, you don’t know what it’s like to struggle. You have amazing genetics.” ⠀
That email reply got my panties in a bit of a bunch...
Sure, some people have it worse than me, but I absolutely struggled, and I definitely don’t have the worlds best genetics.
I struggled with my weight my entire life. It took me years and years of hard work to get to where I am today.
So for someone to say I don’t know what it’s like to struggle, or that I somehow had it “easy,” pissed me right off. ⠀
Don’t worry, I got over it 😉 ⠀
And don’t worry, I have a point to make 😉 ⠀
My point —> Behind every transformation is a staircase of struggles, sacrifices, mistakes, battle scars, and hard lessons learned. ⠀
Yes, it’s inspiring, but not because of the results. ⠀
What’s inspiring is everything it took to get there!
If you’re struggling right now, realize that your struggle it’s 100% normal.
Your struggle is a sign of growth. ⠀
Keep fighting 💪
