Pet Peeves

I don’t want to be a complainer, but these two pet peeves have been coming up a lot lately and I just thought I would share my opinion.

The first one. Today one of my friends was saying that he started working out again. I told him that’s great and to keep it up! He then responded with “I don’t buy into it. I worked out for 5 months and didn’t see any results. Working out doesn’t do anything.” Most of you probably can imagine how I felt. I told him he obviously isn’t working out properly if he didn’t see any results in 5 months. Even if you don’t change your diet, you should at least see SOMETHING…even a little more muscle or just being stronger, even if there are no physical changes. Grr..

Pet Peeve #2: I get pretty frustrated when people say they are eating healthy, but in fact are not…example…

Person: “I ate a healthy snack today!”
Me: “Oh awesome! What did you have?”
Person: “I had a 100 calorie pack of oreos and a jello!!”

This is a pet peeve of mine only because I feel sorry for people who really believe this is a healthy snack. Yes, this is a better choice than a bag of chips and a snickers, but the food companies make consumers believe they are eating “healthy” by eating a 100 calorie pack of almost-anything-you-can-think-of. This pet peeve isn’t one that makes me angry at the person..it makes me angry at the food companies who market these as health foods. Small snacks? Yes. Healthy foods? NO!!

Anyways enough of that!!! I am 2 days away!! My body is seriously on meltdown…aka…i’m a lean mean machine…energy levels are pretty low but I still got through boxing, a shoulder workout and 30 minutes on the incline today!! I am digging deep and pulling out all the energy I can even though my body is totally desperate for REAL energy. I seriously can’t wait to eat a bowl of oats with my eggs on Sunday morning! Gotta keep it clean, though until the photo shoot, but Monday I am going to probably have a treat…if i feel like it. Tuesday I will be back to my clean eats!! I love healthy food and can’t wait for some brown rice and some fruit!! Ahh miss those.

    different diets for different goals. its funny like your comment on "healthy" most of society doesnt diet like a competitor so yeah what we see as healthy is completly different than the "average" person.

    I was making that same remark yesterday… it is so frustrating how some people will swear by protein bars and live almost exclusively off of them because they think it's actually better for them than wholesome foods. Ack!

    I feel like everyone has to start somewhere. When I first started to eat "healthy" I ate a lot of processed crap but eventually I moved more and more towards whole clean foods.

    I think for a lot of Americans it has to be baby steps. But I do agree that 100 calorie backs and frozen meals are terrible for you!

    YAY 2 more days!!! Uh-oh – no carbs is making you crabby! j/k Those are SO annoying!! They really are. I once had someone tell me i'd never lose weight/get fit/be healthier/etc. if I didn't run. "Walking will do nothing but waste your time." I hate know-it-alls who know nothing. (was i agreeing with you or bringing up another pet peeve? hehe) Happy Weekend!
