I have been super obsessed with the gym lately, I decided to make a complete change in my life style habits. I want to be fit for summer! My friend Sarah (pictured below & above) & I have dedicated an hour or so of our time everyday (with the exception of Saturdays) to head over to the gym! Since I’m a university student, access to my gym is free – so why not? It’s also super quick to get there, only a five minute walk from my residence.
“is this how you do it?”
Not only I did not do anything active whatsoever, I LOVE to eat. Eating is a hobby for me. Anything greasy, buttery, cheesy, fried …. (I’m currently drooling as I write this), I could devour without second guessing. I love food more than the average person. If I didn’t love fashion so much, you best believe that my dream would be to work for a food magazine, where I could eat (and write, duh, but mostly eat) to my heart’s desire every single day. I love food network, Gordon Ramsay, and all the American iron chefs. One thing on my bucket list is to go to all the iron chef’s restaurants! I also pretty much eat like a football player, and people are usually surprised by the amount I could eat; and because of my small frame people tend to underestimate how much I can really eat. To keep it short, I have an extremely obsessive, nearing-unhealthy relationship with food.
So, ditching the two boxes of Kraft Dinner (with extra, extra butter) which I used to frequently chow on this summer is going to be very tough. Facing the gym, not sure where to start was tough. Not only tough, embarrassing – due to my lack of athleticism and skill. The hardest part of being active is where to begin. However, one thing I realized is that it doesn’t matter where you start, or if you fall flat on your bum, the most important factor is that you START and go for it.
I am by no means anywhere close to being a nutritionist, a personal trainer, or an athlete, but everyday I am one step closer to becoming a healthier person. I am not going to share exactly what I do at the gym, but I will definitely share my favourite personal resources and things that have kept me motivated. The reason why I decided to share this with all of you is because within the short period that I’ve started to become consistent in my workout routine, I feel stronger, better and have been reaping benefits that I didn’t even expect myself! I invite you to join me on this journey to become a fit, healthy person and live actively! Look forward to more posts on my journey to become (hopefully also coordinated) active!
