Yesterday something pretty cool happened. It's happened a few times but I wanted to share.
A woman in the gym approached me asking about fitness. (It's not uncommon for a stranger to approach me and ask about my booty or something lol) but she was asking me if I was a fitness model or competitor and I told her my story. (Competed, had fun, chose to live a fit life that is flexible with food and not so restricted and that now I coach others to make lifestyle changes) so that led to the "what do you eat?" Question.🤔
Of course when I said I was vegan she was a little shocked. 😯
So that led to the usual protein questions etc. and eventually a little talk about ethics and how nutrition in our society is very twisted and most people are not fully informed.
But by the end of the conversation she was heavily considering trying vegetarianism. I told her if she cut out meat for 30 days, she would feel much different in a positive way. She said she was going to try it and I hope she does. I also gave her some documentaries to watch.
I've had this conversation so many times with women at the gym who approach me, and it's always a pleasant and organic conversation that leaves them with a new perspective on veganism.❤️
It motivates me to keep training hard because I know I can use my body as another way to spread the movement.🤘🏽
So if you're vegan and training for your personal fitness goals, just know that you truly can make a difference. Not only will you prove doubters wrong, but you have the ability to INSPIRE people who have no idea how healthy, fit, and vibrant they can be on a Plant based diet.
So when you're thinking about sleeping on your fitness goals, think about how many people (and by default, animals) you can impact by being your best self and inspiring others. Spread the movement with love. Educate people in a way that allows them to have an open heart to something that goes against everything they were raised on.
We have the ability to make a change. Let's do this. Be a force🌱💪🏽
