Bringing Sweaty Back, Metabolism Monday

Just because

Do what is best for yourself.

Just because everyone is doing it doesn’t mean you need or should follow suit.

Do what is best for YOU! 

Just because other people are doing certain things doesn’t mean that you have to join along.

Some people inhale cheese and greasy french fries but that doesn’t mean you have to.

You arent like everybody else so stop acting as if you’re a clone.

Just because everybody is having a slice of cake at the office party or getting take out fast food for lunch doesn’t mean that you have to. (this includes FREE office catered lunch) Just because it’s free doesn’t mean you have to eat it!

Other people might smoke a pack or toke up with an e-cig but (maybe) you don’t.

Just because everybody is sipping on sugary alcoholic beverages at happy hour doesn’t mean you have to participate the same way.

Some folks suffocate in vegtables and other non dairy products but (maybe) you like to eat meat and drink milk.  So do it!

Don’t disavow carbohydrates just because your friend lost 10 pounds last year.  She isn’t you!

Just because three out of five women in your mom group are starting a 5 day detox cleanse doesn’t mean you have to.  Just because they all play tennis and seem to LOVE spin class doesn’t mean it has to be your go to gig.

You are allowed to love cooking and home FITness.  You are allowed to abhor and disavow cooking without sacrificing healthy eating.  It ‘s A-Ok to fancy private training sessions when everyone else around you doesn’t get it.  Your lean proud muscles come spring time will speak for themselves.

Other people take risky behavior or never take a step out of the box… but that has nothing to do with you and your individual God given genetic make up.

Some people are born blessed with a freak of nature high speed metabolsim and others have to work for it.

You are UNIQUE!  

What works for you might not work for your cutie patootie best friend.  Be true to yourself.  By all means spread your wings and try some different appraoches to food, nutrition and exercise.  But honey,  if you hate cold carrots don’t eat cold carrots.  Instead, try a light olive oil stir fry of sauteed mixed vegtables with yummy flavorful spice.

If you hate guzzling bland and boring water day and day try something different like pressed fruit infused water.  PressaBottle is a handy gadget that lets you hydrate your way.

Just because your kids wake you up at the crack of dawn, just because your eyes are actually open making coffee and pouring cereal, doesn’t qualitfy you as a “morning person.”  IT could be that your energy is more mid day or later in the evening and that’s ok.

Plenty of people DON’T have pets but maybe you do.  Plenty of other people you know have or currently snort cocaine but you haven’t. So just because you LOVE morning workouts and your husband hates it….it’s not a deal breaker.

You don’t have to jump on the Botox bandwagon until you’re ready. (lol) Just because everyone is injecting their body parts doesn’t mean it’s your turn.

Just because your kids want mac-n-cheese doesn’t mean you have to eat it.  By all means make it and serve it to the little ones… Save the grilled salmon or tuna for yourself.

Just because your sweet neighbor who has killer legs and seems to love long distance running doesn’t mean you have to.

You can enjoy power walking and moderate to light jogging and lifting light weights to create long lean muscular legs.

Maybe you are the mean mom because you stick to your guns with your teenager even when it sucks because you know deep down that a lesson learned now is better in the long run.  Meanwhile other parents seem to be more lenient and lax.  DO WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU!!

You arent like everybody else so stop treating yourself as such.

Do what you can today to be a healthier version of yourself.  Build on it.  Do what’s required to keep you and your family sane and healthy.

Just because I said so!

Love, lift and be FIT!
