My Journey to a Healthy Lifestyle
Its time to work it! No more complaining about the way you look and the way you feel. It’s time for you to get back in control of your life and start looking and feeling the way you want to. Life is hard enough with the many uncontrollable challenges we face daily and being unfit is such an inconvenience. A healthy lifestyle is crucial to obtain a happy life. I found myself feeling depressed very often because I wasn’t happy with my weight and the way I felt. I would often wish I could swap bodies with a skinny girl and leave my body that I hated so much with a passion. Also, I would wish to lose weight and start thinking about working out but Id never follow through.
Trust me I literally tried to brainwash myself and others about working out but wouldn’t move a muscle to even try. It was getting so bad that every little thing was a task to complete, I never wanted to get out of the car to walk around anywhere, whether it was the mall, a grocery store or school I dreaded walking around. I was always tired and wanted to sleep the entire day away and didn’t care. On top of all that I had gained a substantial amount of weight in a short period of time. I gained so much my mom thought I was pregnant…. yeah, pregnant. My life felt as if it wasn’t my own any longer. I knew if I didn’t change my lifestyle at this age It was only a matter of time before I got sick or worse, died.
However, there’s good news! I finally took life into my own hands and started my healthy lifestyle journey accompanying my awesome boyfriend Jason. In the beginning of April 2017, we decided to get healthy mentally and physically. I was excited and discouraged at the same time but I knew something needed to change. My first step to a healthy lifestyle was to go workout clothes shopping!!! Who can start working out without the right attire, no one! I went to Wal-Mart and got two workout outfits, which included,
- two shirts, two sports bras, two pairs of pants, a jacket and of course a pair of workout shoes.
I felt soo motivated to finally get started because I had such cute comfortable clothes to wear and who doesn’t want to look and feel good working out. Living a healthy life is a serious journey. I believe everyone should take and I have made a video filled with tips to get you started on your healthy lifestyle journey like me 🙂
