Fitness. Its obvious that it is something that I am passionate about, something that I love and believe in BUT IT DOES NOT DEFINE ME. I have other hobbies, other interests, other things that I would like to talk about. I sometimes just feel like it is ALL anyone ever wants to talk to me about. I get their curiosity, their desire to learn more about it but honestly... sometimes I DREAD going to certain things because I am just so sick and tired of talking about it and giving "advice" or suggestions to people who ask for it over and over and over and OVER again but really have no intentions of doing anything about their lifestyle or situation. I am sure some of you can relate... I am not a personal trainer, I do not have my certifications (YET) but I know what I know and I love to help people and see them succeed. I do not however love answering the same questions from the same people every time I am around them KNOWING that I will be doing it again next time I see them. Does that make sense? The other thing that REALLY gets to me is hearing people complain about their weight, or situation yet they are not really willing to make any changes. If you are going to complain about it, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. If you are going to ask for my advice or help over and over again, TRY IT OUT and see if it helps you.
I guess I just feel like people honestly don't think I have other interests. I do. I swear. I do however LOVE helping people who REALLY want the help and who are really taking it all in, and seeing results. I have a friend who I have been helping and to see her losing the weight week after week has been so amazing for me. I am so proud of her. She has been inspiring me and keeping me focused on what is ahead.
Do any of you ever feel this way? Maybe I am just being overly sensitive lately because I am lacking carbs and jealous that as they are asking me for advice they are stuffing their faces ;) Ha ha ha! Anyway, its just something that has been weighing on my mind.
What are some of your pet peeves? I have many others. For another post!
