I will not bitch I will not bitch I will not bitch.
Okay so let me tell you a little secret about life that will make you succeed in anything from dieting, to training for a marathon, to parenting, to sex.
Yup the same little secret to succeed at all of those things.
Then when everyone tells you how crazy you are and how that's not how THEY do it, just show them your skinny ass, or how much you bench press, or your smiling husband.
I am dairy and gluten free.
I also do a fair amount of cardio
I drink protein shakes and I stick to clean and as minimally processed foods as possible.
Sometimes I lift heavy and sometimes I just lift my kids
I can't do weekly cheat meals because they tend to turn into cheat weekends.
I also like to weigh myself after I pee.
I don't shower every day and I don't let my kids drink soda.
When I run I unleash my inner geek and listen to podcasts about the science between being left handed and right handed.
I listen to rap in the car by myself and Disney with my kids.
I sometimes get down about my progress and I have a real hard time listening to all the advice I give, but I keep going.
So far it seems to be working for me.
No matter what you do you will find people who will tell you it's wrong or that it's all bullshit.
Well if it works for you then fuck them.
Don't get wrapped up in someone else's plan. If you don't stick with what works for you, you won't stick with it.
That's not to say you shouldn't step out of your comfort zone because that's where the magic happens BUT you shouldn't do it because someone tells you it's the only way.
The best part is there is probably someone reading this thinking "she's doing this all wrong" and I could be but I'm doing it and doing it and doing it well.
