Last week was not my week in terms of running. I started and stopped or just completely skipped some runs because my legs felt really heavy. I turned to cross training and HIIT instead so I could still get my HR up and sweat. The week wasn't completely wasted with cross training and lots of heavy lifts and some HIIT in there too. .
Biggest pet peeves with dieting and training:
1. people who tell you that you don't need to diet and train like you do because you're "skinny" already. I look like this because I do the right things for my body. I don't strive for skinny and the societal norms. I strive for strength and learning all that this body I've been given can do for me if I do the right things.
2. people that resent you for putting in the hard work, dedication, and effort to train and eat properly. Again, I work hard to look how I look and am constantly striving to improve and become the best version of myself. To me it's not what the scale says, crash dieting, six pack abs, a tiny waist, etc. It's about improvements, running faster or further, increasing reps/velocity/weight when lifting, and my mental health. What these people don't understand is that we are all different and what works for one person doesn't work for the next. Resenting my effort won't help you on your journey, it will only hold you back. Instead, try learning about someone who has had success and either working with them or taking the best parts of their journey (as determined by you) and combining it with others' successes and what is best FOR YOU!
