it’s about damn time i posted this.
don’t judge me because i don’t judge you.
please stop judging me when i ask for my salad dressing on the side, when i ask request brown rice instead of white rice in my sushi, when i’d rather have a double veg order instead of the butter laden mashed potatoes.
i don’t judge you when you order the “i’d like to loosen my belt buckle 3 notches double deluxe hamburger”
please don’t roll your eyes in embarrasment when i ask for there to be no or little cheese, or when i pass on the bloomin onion or 100,000 calorie spinach artichoke dip.
because if i’m going to eat 2,000 calories in one sitting. it’s most certainly not going to be at applebees or outback steakhouse.
and yes when in doubt i’m probably going to choose the “sugar free preserves” the “zero calorie drinks” and the “lower carb” options. it doesn’t make me “eating disordered” so just stop. because either you’re mad you didn’t choose them, you don’t understand why i’d rather use my calories in pounds of hummus and peanut butter or your just jealous that i found them and you didn’t.
and i won’t judge you when i see you use them the next time. i’ll high five you and recommend others ;)
please stop telling me how i should “eat a piece of meat”
i’m pretty sure fish is considered meat. and i don’t tell you that you shouldn’t eat that piece of meat.
…what’s in a sausage anyways?
please stop making comments about the “size of my salad” and yes i’m going to eat the whole thing. or “what the heck are you putting in that bowl?”
well. “it’s egg whites, oatmeal, peanut butter, & flaxseed.” got a problem?
i don’t comment on the amount of times you’ve hit the open doritos bag in the office or the fact that you’ve helped yourself to 2 jelly doughnuts from dunkin.
i don’t judge you for what you eat. so please stop making judgements and comments on what i eat.
i’m not dieting. so please stop asking why i’m eating diet food.
the last time i checked green vegetables, brown rice, whole wheat bread, and lean proteins weren’t diet food. i’m pretty sure they’re just healthier choices.
please stop asking me “why i workout”
because i like to.
please stop making judgments about me getting up to workout in the morning.
i don’t judge you for sleeping.
the point of the matter is that i’m friggn sick and tired of the comments.
the nasty comments on the blog are ridiculous. if you don’t like what i’m eating or what i’m doing then don’t read.
the snide comments in person about my menu choices, my meal options and my workout schedule are getting quite ridiculous.
this is me. this is who i am. this is what i like to do. it’s my life. i’m healthy, i’m fit, i make good food choices & i feel amazing. so stop. just stop.
stop asking “when i’m going to stop dieting”
because I’M NOT ON A DIET. why is it that living a healthy lifestyle is considered a “diet” it’s not.
i eat vegetables because i love them. i eat huge salads because they’re what i want. not what i feel like i ‘have’ to eat. i don’t eat red meat or even really chicken because i just don’t like it. the last time i checked a nice piece of salmon has the same amount of calories as a piece of chicken. so does it really matter to you which i like better?
because you’re eating 300 calories in freezer bagel bites, and i’m eating 300 calories of salmon, quinoa, veggies & hummus. i win because i get more.
because if i wanted the damn piece of pizza, or the huge piece of chocolate cake, the 12 serving bowl of fettuccini alfredo, or the ruby tuesday’s nacho explosion then i’d have it. i eat what i want. so stop. just stop.
so if i want your opinion on how i should workout, what i should eat, or how i choose to live my life, well then i’ll ask for it. but until then just stop. stop making obnoxious comments. stop rolling your eyes. and stop judging me.
because i’m not judging you.
that’s right. i’m owning it. i’m owning my healthy lifestyle. it’s a lifestyle NOT A DIET.
thanks rachel. that felt really good. ;)
i owned it. now your turn. what are you dying to own? shout it from the top of the mountain people!
