So I have a bit of a confession to make. From my website and my Facebook page, you know I promote health and wellness as a career. Well, I have to confess... IT'S A HARD TASK FOR ME TOO! Yes, finding time to exercise, finding the energy to exercise, choosing a side salad instead of fries, wanting nothing more than to sit down with an ice cold beer or finish a bottle of wine in one sitting when drinking 8 glasses of water a day seems like an impossible feat!... it's a real struggle!! I know i'm not the only fitness professional out there like this. I've seen my fair share of overweight gym teachers and nurses who smoke. As much as we talk the talk it hard to always walk the walk. However, my own struggle is what makes my job great. I don't get pissed at clients when they don't reach their goals. I don't make the process of losing weight sound simple or easy. "Just do some sit-ups during a TV commercial." YEA OK! I'm watching a DVR'd show I can skip right though that shit. My clients keep me as motivated and I keep them!
I guess the point of this rant is don't ever think it's easy for everyone else. Everyone struggles. Some more than others of course. And if it's not keeping up with their fitness/health than it's something else! If health/fitness is what you struggle with, well, that's why God invented personal trainers! To help you to reach your goals and to motivate ourselves to keep striving for our own!
I'll leave you with a picture of one of my good friends I met in college. Her shirt says it all!
