So I’ve recently enrolled myself to the gym last week. I’ve finally taken this major step for a major lifestyle overhaul. Being a political science student meant having to read loads and loads of book, writing a lot of term papers and creating a thesis project that might as well be a book. With all these comes the unhealthy lifestyle I’ve been treading – late night study outs, coffee and alcohol intake and of course, all the sodas and fast-food orders that are the only possible things that could be squeezed in amidst our busy schedules.
I’ve always been the sporty kind, or so I like to believe. I jog, I bike and I play soccer but all these were completely forgotten the past year. And so here I am, finally riding into the healthy lifestyle gig not only to become as fit as a fiddle but also to advocate for a healthier and a much more SANE me!
It’s my second week now and my body’s aching all over! I can feel my thighs getting bigger and my body getting fatter. I’ve done some research and they said it’s normal. The only worry I have that my muscles won’t shape up right before my graduation which is pretty soon. But oh well, I guess I have to bear with it then and manage to look extra pretty. *batting eyelashes* hahaha! But i’m for the long term now and I’ve realized that going to the gym is just 50% of the whole healthy lifestyle goal because clear cut muscles and abs are made in the kitchen. Yup! You’ve read that right. Half of your training will always depend on the food you eat (protein-rich, fibre-rich) and the kind of lifestyle you’re having (no smoking, less alcohol).
Something like this really scares me because I know I have to commit myself into something long-term and I might suck at it. However, with everyone’s support I am very hopeful that I can do it! I hope you’re inspired to do the same or even better!! If you have questions or ideas please feel free to comment. Thank you! Thank you!!
So my dear readers I hope you start, in any way, living a healthier life, welcoming a better and healthier you!
