You Don’t Need to Earn Your Food

As we approach the holiday season, you may see a lot of fitness professionals posting about, “Burn it to earn it.”

You know what I think? Fuck that.

Food and exercise is NEVER a punishment or a reward. Ever. Period.

It has taken me YEARS to overcome some of those thoughts. “Well I ate this so I am a bad person.” or “I ate a cupcake so I have to run 10K tomorrow.”

Let me say it again. A little louder. Eating food that you truly enjoy does not make you a bad person. Eating food that you enjoy, does not mean you need to exercise yourself into the ground to “burn it off”.

You don’t owe anyone an explanation. You don’t have to justify your choices. What you eat is your business.

Make a choice.
Savour it.
Connect and enjoy those around you.
Move the fuck on.
