I know many of you have expressed how hard it can be to live the healthy, clean lifestyle you want when someone close to you isn't supportive. That is why this tip is so key!
- Find nutrition buddies with whom you can share your commitment to eating more healthily. Share tips, ideas, recipes, and give each other support during life's ups and downs.
Isn't this so important? If you have been improving yourself or your diet lately, you know what I am talking about. You NEED support. Some days I feel like everyone is ridiculing me for my choices, but then I find another mom who cares as much as I do about what she is feeding her family, and I feel so much better. I can relate to her struggles, and she can relate to mine. We both can stand a little taller the next time someone looks at us with that "You're crazy" look.
Thankfully, after some years of slowly educating him, my husband is now a pretty great rock for me to lean on when I feel down about being different than most people. He stands by me against adversity, and I can vent to him about GMO's, Monsanto or whoever. We all need that person or group of people. If you are looking for that person and haven't found them yet, consider me that person. I love to support and help others, and as a personal trainer, it is my job. So, reach out to me via email or comments whenever you need a little support!
