Okay readers, I am going to ask you a serious question and I want a serious answer.
Do I come off as preachy on my blog?
Let me tell you why I am asking this. I hate, hate, hate, hate reading blogs that tell me I have to do ____________ (fill in the blank) to be healthy.
This is how you have to eat to be healthy.
This is how you have to exercise to be healthy.
This is what you have to drink to be healthy.
This is how much sleep you have to get to be healthy.
Etc, etc, etc, etc.
I do not enjoy reading blogs like this! When I read them, first they make me feel "less than", and then they make me angry at the pretentious blogger who dares to tell me I'm doing it all wrong.
I hope that my blog motivates you. I hope it gives you ideas. I hope it gives you insight. I hope when you read my blog, you don't think: "If I eat exactly like her, I will be healthy," or "If I exercises exactly like her I will be healthy."
Let me say it loud and clear:
My way is not THE way. It's the way that works for me.
I was trying to think of the topics I may possibly be preachy about. Here is what I came up with:
1. The importance of rest days.
2. The importance of weight training.
3. The fine line between training and OVERtraining.
I guess if I am preachy about those things, I can live with myself. But I may not be self aware enough to really think about this objectively. So I ask you readers: Do I come off as preachy on my blog? Do I make you feel less than after you read it? I hope not.
SERIOUSLY, answer in the comments. And I am NOT fishing for compliments! If I have a habit of presenting things that rub you the wrong way, let me know! I realize I can't change who I am, but I would at least appreciate the feedback on this topic!
