Why I love fitness

Fitness, weight lifting, muscle building, going to the gym, working out, what ever you wanna call it. It’s been my thing for a little over a year now. I love it and it has become one of the most important parts of my life. It’s been one of the key elements that has formed me in to the person I am today. I transformed my lifestyle, to one of eating healthy, nutritious food, which I use to fuel my workouts, 6 days a week. I do it because I’m dedicated. Things get hard, I struggle at times, I’ve currently got a pain in my leg which makes me unable to do any leg exercises, and yeah, I can lack energy etc etc. But still, nothing stops me, I still go, I still turn up! It’s my passion, even if it’s really not at times, I know that if it wasn’t in my life, I would fucking miss it!! 

I have dreams, nowadays. I have goals. I have imaginations, my very own beliefs. I have my mind… my body. And I know, that I can use these, to REACH those dreams, and goals, and imaginations…

And I see so many people without dreams. Or people have dreams without doing anything! I’ve been a person who never had a clue what they wanted to do. I’d eat badly, have no self control (because that’s what I believed), and be influenced by everything around me, and everyone. I was, and still am shy. “Fitting in” had always been difficult. And maybe now I don’t fit in to how life is meant to be, but hey, I’m one of a kind 😉 things are how they’re supposed to be! I’ve gotten this far, and I don’t stop here.

But anyway… the thing is I’ve learnt a lot from the past and through reading, and my god, I know there’s so much more for me to learn! But I like to share my experience so that maybe one day people can recognise themselves in me, or can relate to things, and stuff. 

But I wanna grow!

And I’ve realised that maybe right now I am on my own on this journey of mine… but I believe things come to those who believe, and never give up. 

And I’m never giving up. 

You really can change your entire lifestyle. Smoking, eating bad food, drinking, being unfit. 

But you’ve got to WANT to. You’ve got to feel sick to the core of these lifestyle habits – the things that make you feel shit when you do them. But you’ve gotta care enough to do it. 

It is then that you will be commited – when you see that you need you change it, you want to change it, and you realise you CAN change it.

I’m definitely still working on this, everyday. Some things are harder than others. But you’ve gotta believe in yourself, or no one else will. Even if you’re right at the bottom of the stairs right now, you’re still there, able to climb those stairs, one step at a time. 

I’m gon’ jump in that river.

I can, I will, I must. 

Who’s with me?
