It’s your life…don’t let anyone make you feel guilty for living it the way you want.
Lately, I’ve seen too many people “policing” posts on Instagram and it needs to stop.
Just because the way you do something works, doesn’t mean that it is the only way to do it.
Offering advice or sharing what has worked for you is totally acceptable. Hell, I encourage it! That is how we learn about new things and you might inspire someone who is stuck on their journey to try something new or take their progress to the next level. That is how I ended up trying keto and I’m sooooo grateful for that conversation.
What is NOT acceptable is making someone feel bad about their journey or like they are doing something wrong.
I don’t believe there is really a right or wrong way to go about this. I mean yes, I have a pretty firm stance on cleanses and “quick fix diets” but that’s only because they haven’t worked in the long term for myself or any of my clients in the past.
(If you have had success with these I would LOVE to have a conversation with you about it!)
Everyone is different. Everyone has different circumstances and everyone has different genetics. Health and Fitness is NOT one size fits all, so quit trying to make it that way.
- If you’re keto and just count your net carbs (or if you’re strict keto) and it works for YOU….Awesome!
- If you do Weight Watchers but don’t workout yet and it works for YOU….Awesome!
- If you workout but eat whatever you feel like eating and it works for YOU…..Awesome!
- If your lifestyle works for you and your family is open to joining YOU….Awesome!
If you’re doing any of the above and someone is giving you a hard time about it because it’s different from what they’re doing…give them the middle finger and walk away. You don’t need that shit in your life.
This journey is hard enough without people giving you shit because you’re not doing something exactly the way they are.
