I know is there really a twinning syndrome? Of course not but that’s what I call it and I had to learn to stop it.
This is when you mock the behavior of a fitness enthusiast you want to be like. You eat what they eat, do all their workouts (or so you think), sleep their number of hours in other words try to mimic their fitness life as much as possible to bet the muscle tone and body just like them.
Aha. the possibility of that occurring is just that. A possibility. Why because our bodies are so different. You must first of all and for most love you as you first. Then you must have that relationship with your body to know what you can keep and what you need to toss out. That relationship with the body will hell you differentiate what’s best.
I know there are certain workouts I must modify to prevent injury and certain foods will not work for me at all regardless of the great value so I must substitute.
Our bodies are individualized. Does this mean you will not achieve your goals, of course not. I’m still working on and seeing progress in my fitness journey or rather the change in my fitness life style; which includes both scale and non scale victories. I learned through critiquing myself I’ve stopped that. I was angry with why I wasn’t getting results I wanted and fast. Well I had to tweak a few things and as always dial in my nutrition that was for me. Yep that relationship with your body makes a difference.
So STOP the twinning and be YOU. Use all and every encouragement that applies to you, which does not mean take it easy. Just know what accelerates and what decelerates the journey. This journey is not just for fitness of course I am speaking of fitness it also applies to life goals.
