Come check out my new blog!
I thought I had this posted here, but I didn't so here it is... I wrote this after having many experiences over the years with all sorts of people trying to get me to eat their crap. Coworkers, family members, and neighbors are the worst. And the letter is not directed towards anyone who just politely offers something nice to eat,... people will always be offering food and it's just customary. It is directed to the people who don't accept a polite 'no thank you' and they keep pushing and pushing and questioning your choices
Were you trying to push someone who has taken on the challenge of a fitness goal, into eating some crap? This person has set out on a mission to get herself in the best shape of her life. This requires eating some food that doesn't taste as great as what you are offering and it is very difficult and challenging to say no. It is a very very difficult sacrifice to make in giving up all the more delicious tasting foods in pursuit of a fit body and it becomes even more difficult when people like you constantly question what she is eating and and keep offering her more crappy food to eat. The crappy food you are offering may taste so delicious but the very sad and unfortunate truth is that it makes our bodies look like total ****. I wish it weren’t the case, but it is true.
Even if this person doesn’t need to lose any weight, the crappy food will STILL make her/his body look like **** so it’s not only about gaining or losing weight, it's about staying fit. Here is a person trying to accomplish a very difficult goal of getting and staying in great shape, and you come along and try to throw her/him off course. How about giving her a little support instead ? This process is very challenging.
If you want to eat crap go right ahead,.. we all make our own choices but there is no need to try and drag others down with you. Or maybe you just don’t realize that eating crap makes you look like crap (many people don’t know that) and you think it is just genetics or aging that causes us to have dangling lard all over our bodies? It doesn’t have to be that way. Start eating right as well, and you will soon see how nice you will start to look and feel and you will see that it is worth giving up the crap. There is no doubt that it SUCKS saying no all the time to the pizzas, the cookies, the cakes, the ice cream and such. It really does SUCK.
As delicious as all the crappy foods can be, they don’t come close to being as fun as it is to walk around in a lean, hard, tight body and look good in any piece of clothing. The right food will give you this look and feeling…foods such as plain chicken, oatmeal, fish, and vegetables. It’s a hard pill to swallow in giving up all the goodies but once you accept the facts you can make the best of it. How would you like to go clothes shopping and have everything look good on you? It is completely possible if you’ll stop eating all the crap and make the right choices each day.
So there you have it. That is why you were reported as a “crap pusher”. Eating right and exercising is very hard work but very worthwhile mission and you are welcome to join in on the 'fun'! If you don’t want to, no big deal but please stop pushing the crap on others and just keep it to yourself.
I hear this a lot.. I am offered cakes, muffins, and all kinds of delicious assorted pastries on a daily basis at my real estate office and many other places (drooling over the Starbucks pastry case every morning). I always turn them down, and I'll hear so many people say to me, “why deprive yourself?... life is too short.”
I see these people chowing down all the muffins every week and I'm actually thinking the same thing about them... Aren't they depriving themselves of nice bodies by eating them everyday? None of these people are in shape and they are all sitting around with big belly rolls and jiggles all over their bodies. I'm just thinking to myself when I see them, that they are depriving themselves of the great feeling of being fit. They are depriving themselves of being at their best. So I guess it's all in how you look at it. I've personally never felt deprived by turning down the goodies. Sure I love them. I was raised on junk food and sugar,.. it's like mother's milk to me. But the feeling of being fit all the time is far greater to me than the temporary satisfaction of feasting on the morning pastry basket. So I will keep turning them down (not easy though) and I will not be depriving myself of the body I want. Everyone has different fitness goals, but I think no matter what they are, it will have to involve some level of making cutbacks on all that stuff. So next time you're feeling like 'oh, poor me... I can't eat that stuff for my fitness goals'.. focus on what you're getting (the body you want),... not what you're giving up and it gives it a new positive perspective. A fit body requires a lot of food, but unfortunately you probably won't reach your fitness goals by feeding on doughnuts, cookies and cakes. I have to look at those goodies practically every single day, and I don't think they'll ever go away, so that is how I get past it.
Eating properly changes your body composition and makes you look better. How strict should you be about not eating crap? It depends on the look you want and how much sacrifice you are willing to make, everyone is different. If you want to be a certain weight and wear a certain size clothing, and you don't mind having cellulite....,belly rolls, and hanging flab.... eat all the crap you want while maintaining your special number on the scale. Throw some liquor into the mix and sit back and watch the cellulite spread.....still while maintaining that scale number.
If you want visible muscle and a lean looking body, staying away from the crap and eating properly is what makes the difference... regardless of how great you do your http://www.oxygenmag.net/showthread.php?t=3469&page=302#.
Through the years, I've had many co-workers from my office ask me about working out and I have noticed that they all tend to say the same thing about exercising.
"I'm bored with my workouts, and I think cardio is very boring...."
--One of the silliest workout excuses ever.
Oh really,... are you bored working out? Well no ****,... it 'IS' boring. I've done many exciting things in my life so far
and working out is certainly not one of them. It is just something that needs to be done on a regular basis if you would like to keep yourself fit.
You know what is even more boring than working out though? How about trying on all your clothes and having them not fit, .... with
fat rolls and jiggles everywhere, and a cellulite party all over your ass. That just may be a little bit more boring than keeping up with working out regularly.
I don't blame anyone for thinking the workout process is supposed to be a thrill though. Just about every single commercial for exercise equipment and
fitness products out there, claims that is is fun (and easy)..... I know what fun is,... and working out isn't any ****ing fun and I think everyone knows that or everyone in the world would all be doing it everyday. It just comes down to this, fun or not.....if you really want to be fit and take good care of yourself, you are going to have to get your ass up and do your
If by chance you ARE doing it just for fun and you're getting big thrills from walking on a treadmill but don't want to see any results at all,.... then make sure you are never consistent about it and keep starting over every week after you screw up.. This way you are guaranteed not
to ever see any results and you''ll just keep having your fun and thrills with the workout process once in a while.
If you actually DO workout consistently and eat right all the time, you'll keep getting in better shape and that can actually be fun and exciting in it's own
way. But if you are waiting for thrills and excitement everytime you go to the gym or exercise,... I think it will be a long wait.
An important thing that is not discussed in most diet books, is that to reach a fitness goal, there is always some level of hard work and sacrifice involved. It seems few are willing to step forward and speak that very real truth. Everyone wants to hear that you can eat ALL the foods you love while dieting and put in just a tiny amount of exercise, so that becomes the basis for the war of the diet books marketed to the masses. It becomes a contest of who can tell everyone what they want to hear? For example,.. you can eat cookies on my diet! or You can eat anything you want on my diet and lose a lot of weight using a magic secret. It is madness.
Isn't any goal, (no matter what it is) acheived by some level of hard work and sacrifice? Not by doing the 'least amount possible' which would be the theme in so many of the diet books?
I think I'll write a diet book called get fit with Poptarts, M&M's, and booze. ( It won't work though.)
When my mom's friends and relatives see me, they will always say: "you're so lucky you are thin and can eat whatever you want:.
I say: " I eat /ChickenTuna/admin/# food all the time, that's why I'm not fat.
Mom's friends: " oh, well you are sooooooooo lucky that you like you like that stuff because we don't like it at all.. ha ha ,. We only like all the food that isn't healthy..ha ha ha:. We €˜crave' it all the time.
Oh yeah,: that's right,: it is so LUCKY that I love to eat plain fuc.king nasty old tuna out of can for some /ChickenTuna/admin/# while you are snorfing down a delicious f.ucking pepperoni pizza with extra crust and washing it down with a few vodka tonics, there is no way I would crave /ChickenTuna/admin/# that scrumptious /ChickenTuna/admin/#, bring on the smelly plain cold tuna intead because I just fuc.king LOVE that **** over the amazing smell and taste of a hot fresh extra cheesy pizza. I mean come on, get a fu.cking grip, who the fuc.k wouldn't like the pizza over the tuna,: maybe there are some: but that is strange. The point is,:.. the pizza won't help me reach my goals, so I'll take the tuna instead and I won't complain about it because that is my choice... but it is certainly not my preference, because I am indeed 'craving' the pizza. If you don't care about being in shape, fine:not a problem,.. everyone has different goals and priorities but please don't call me lucky for making daily sacrifices you are not making.
