Before I write this post, I would like to clarify a few things:
1. This post is meant to be an encouragement and inspiration, it is NOT to toot my own horn.
2. I’m not bashing weekly weigh-ins or denying that a scale can be a good tool.
3. I’m not looking for a million compliments or haters.
Ok… now that you have some guidelines…
Sometimes I think that people believe that trainers are above the daily fitness and self-image struggles that seem to plague the rest of the world.
My trainer never wants/eats/craves junk food. FALSE.
My trainer never gets tired. ABSOLUTELY FALSE.
My trainer must love his or her body all the time. A COMPLETE LIE.
Show me a trainer who has never once struggled with body image and I will gladly invest in some training sessions with them. I could use that kind of mental resiliency.
But the truth is we struggle. We doubt. We criticize ourselves. We roll our eyes. We sigh. We avoid mirrors. We obsess about the scale.
