I read my previous blog a few days ago, and It sounded so strange to me. I was saying that all my life I've wanted to lose weight and be a success story like all the stories I see. I chose to be on this journey, and making that choice is a huge deal for someone who lived most their lives being sedentary and eating whatever the hell they wanted. I've been on this journey for god knows how long and to keep failing in it, made me so depressed.
But since I decided to let go of everything I've heard or seen, everything people have tried to be successful and fit and healthy, and make my own path, I've realized how much more happier I am.
I can't believe how active I've been since I posted that blog. It's kind of ridiculous how easy it has been to get up every morning and make myself a healthy meal. It's so easy to exercise almost every day, without having to go to the gym. (I cancelled my gym membership about 6 months ago because I hated going to the gym for some reason and as hard as it was to give that up, I see now that it was the best decision for me). I have a treadmill at home, an elliptical and a bike. I have a stepper and some weights. I have a yoga mat and a jump ropes. My brother has a pull up bar and some heavy weights too. Every day I get in about 10k steps, easily on some days, if not more. like today, I walked/moved 12k steps and it's only 5pm out here.
I have never been so happy being on this journey, as I am right now. Every time I complete a workout, I start smiling like an idiot because I accomplished something without having to follow a plan or MAKE myself exercise when I didn't feel like it. Every morning I walked my mirror and I see the fat shrink and melt away, I notice how my body feel strange when am in the shower because it's smaller that it was yesterday.
If you're wondering what happens on days that I don't feel like working out, well, I get on the treadmill and walk for half an hour on very low speed. If I really don't want to workout, I mark the day as rest day. I only have one or two rest days a week because I know what my body needs. Hell some days I exercise for 2 to 3 hours just for the fun of it.
I eat when am hungry, and I eat what I want. mostly homemade food. I eat clean and healthy food most of the time, and I indulge.
This is the epitome of Balance for me. A Stress-free fit life, something I've always strived for.
I have enough stress at work and Uni to last me a life time, and I've needed this part of my life to be simpler and easier, and it is now. And I just wanted to share this with you guys.
I am proud to say that I am a happy fit person who loves working out at home. I've been doing this for about 5 weeks and my body keeps changing every single week and I am losing weight steadily. I will post a before and after in about 5 to 6 weeks or maybe after am back from my holiday.
As always, thank you for reading. have a lovely weekend ya'll
