Let’s get one thing straight: I despise running. As the blog name suggests, running gives me blisters, shin splints, dark, desperate thoughts and side aches. I’m not an expert in exercise or nutrition, but I play one in the blogosphere I’m becoming an expert of my body. I try new things, read and ponder; I don’t follow the crowd.
Often, “health” advice in our Western culture simply reinforces stereotypes and supports outdated research and ideas about fitness and nutrition. Seems that many fitness magazines exist to sell products and make us readers feel inferior because we don’t have Photoshopped 6-packs and flawless workout hair. Seriously, who completes 3 sets of 50 weighted squats without bulging facial veins and a bright red mug?
I’m choosing to blaze my own health trail and find a balance that works for me. I embarked on a freelance fitness journey of thinking outside the gym. My choices may not fit you perfectly, but they present an alternative to the usual
idiotic vacuous articles that take us to the same dead-end places over and over.
Hopefully my experiences inspire you to be a badass follow through with your own experimentation and keep building an amazing life.
