Stumbled upon this great fitness blog the other day.
Amazing how much I can relate to it. Here’s the full post that I really related to.
“Working out regularly helps me feel strong and powerful. It makes me feel capable and accomplished in a way that almost nothing else in my life has ever affected me. It drives me to work harder, to be a better person, to always be improving myself—inside the gym and outside.”
“And as I get stronger, faster, fitter, better…I stand taller, feel better about myself and appreciate all that my body has achieved.”
“I don’t care what I weigh, but I do care how much weight I can lift and how many miles I can run. That says so much more about who I am and what I’m worth than any stupid scale can ever tell me. I don’t care what I look like while I’m doing these things—just that I show up and try my hardest.”
“My experience with exercise has been an education is self-care and body awe. When you put the work in, you do see changes and improvements. It’s a virtuous cycle that feeds on itself. You exercise. You feel good. You take better care of yourself. You appreciate your body. You lose weight, or maybe you don’t, but either way, you feel good about yourself, so you keep on going. Eventually, the weight takes care of itself.”
Great post by this blogger, great motivation and inspiration. (Although I’m taking the next two days off so my PAINFUL shin splints can heal!)
