My biggest petpeeve about fitness blogs...

is being pretentious.

Right now, I could boast about how the only processed food in our pantry is a box of Kashi cereal and I could rave about how I ran my first 7:40 mile yesterday. Both are true, but here's how I feel when people tell me their favorite snack is half an avocado with a little salt and pepper sprinkled on top:

I know, I know.  It's my pride.  My pride skyrockets when people try to preach to me about fitness.  My heart is saying, "Who do they think they are?!  Don' they know who I am?!  I'll show you half an avocado!  I'll rock some guacamole and top it with a skinny margarita!"  But the truth is, I wouldn't be in this healthy state right now if I hadn't been teachable at one point about how to eat healthy and how to keep pushing my exercising.

So how do you do that?
How can we create a fitness community that can encourage one another?
How can we learn from one another without being pretentious?

I'd love to find it. I'd love to create that space where we come together to "spur one another on", where we meet unmasked and unguarded and I pray that it can happen here.
