Practice what you Preach

Boy do I HATE Wall Balls, but I will still do them

The Biggest Oximorons in Life:

-The Broke Financial Planner
-The Priest having an Affair

Personally I have always been a big believer in “Practicing what you Preach”. When I go anywhere I always ask whoever is trying to sell me something, “Do you have it? How do you like it?” If they say no or don’t like it I automatically lose interest. Do you?

So I came across this topic on Marksdailyapple.com

As regards to fitness; Does the physical appearance of a fitness or nutrition authority affect the worthiness of the message?

“Regina Benjamin, the United States’ 18th Surgeon General, is markedly overweight. She’s a highly trained physician who famously set up a medical clinic for Alabama’s poor hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina, and she’s unquestionably knowledgeable and experienced, but she’s also overweight. Does this negatively impact her role as the public face of health? Does her weight detract from the message?

Or take countless nutrition experts that fit the mold of the dietitian featured in this video? She’s educated, has dozens of books on nutrition and healthy cooking under her belt and, at least on paper, looks like an authority of sorts. But her physique (saying nothing of her healthy eating tips) doesn’t exactly instill confidence in her recommendations (as readers noted in the forum).

On the other hand what about someone like Jillian Michaels? Strong shoulders. Check. Trim waistline and ripped abs. Check and check. She must be doing things right? Right?” – Taken from marksdailyapple.com
