Fitness is hard.





No seriously, it is so not fun. The only reason people like is, is because you feel better after. The actually working out? Blows. Deny it all you want. It’s true.

Why does this matter? Because when you’re part of an office contest to see which group can be the most successful in reaching your goals . . . . you end up eating peanut butter M&Ms at your desk because you gained weight when you’ve been uber healthy and decide who cares.

Yup. That happened today.

I actually really enjoy eating healthy. I like the taste of most vegetables. However, I love sugar. . . . like really love it. People who don’t scare me. Or at least I think they’re weird.

However, I think women fall into the category of shame eating more than anyone else. You know what the worst part is? I know that muscle weighs more than fat. So if I’m toning muscle, why does it matter? My pants are a little looser. Because part of the challenge . . . is percentage of weight lost.

I’ve never been one to step on the scale every day. I’m a clothing size fitness girl. If my clothes get loose, I’m happy. If they get tight, I’m not doing something right.

So what is the point of all this? I’m leaning on you, because this  . . . . well, it sucks. I know that everyone reading as had problems staying fit, losing weight, or just trying to be healthy. We all fall of the horse, and I would love to hear how you handle it. How do you keep going? Or, if you don’t, will you? Or how to do you cope with the feeling of “failing”? Because, let’s be honest, shame eating peanut butter M&Ms isn’t helping me!
