Do you ever read a blog entry on your links list , and you wonder if the pissy post is directed at YOU? I swear to god, this happens to me at least every other month. Man, I don't mean to sound paranoid, but it usually sounds like a companion piece to something I had recently written - like a public response. I read it and go "Is that....Noooooo! They're not talking to ME, are they? Hmmm.... I have been getting snarky responses from my comments on said blog...." Here's the thing: I read A LOT of blogs devoted to fitness, kettlebells, and nutrition. I comment on most of them. I am not, however, fanatical about my diet. I don't do the no-carb thing. I try to eat mostly whole grains, with the occasional pasta indulgence (and I will eat my baked goods, when I make them) but the really die hard stuff: sorry, no can do. My reasoning is this: I have tried really extreme dieting - in that I mean restrictive- and at some point, I binge. I binge hardcore. It ain't pretty. For me, rather than an 'all or nothing' mentality, I try to walk the middle ground. Portion control. Eating the good foods first. Reaching for a piece of fruit before a cookie. And it's been working. I don't feel as obsessed about eating. Here's the other thing: I am not overweight. I have never struggled with my weight. In fact, I spent far more years underweight - up until age 27-28, I couldn't gain weight. that's where my bad food habits came from, I could eat and eat, and not gain an ounce. I came out of pregnancy #1 SKINNIER than when I started. It's been in the last 7 years that my metabolism has slowed down, and I have had to relearn eating. Things most people learn at a young age, I am having to do now. So don't get pissy with me because I don't subscribe to any one school of thought. I eat well, exercise religiously, and feel great! My question is, why does anyone give a shit? I blog for fun, for an outlet, to keep track of my KB progress, and hopefully, make someone giggle every now and then. I am not here to preach, or inspire, or be role model.
Needless to say, it pisses me off. A lot. It's just this: I have sitemeter, I know you're all out there, so if anyone has anything to say, say it.
We now return to our regularly scheduled non cry baby programming.
