My blog is something that I have loved doing, I loved talking to people from all over the internet and creating good interviews for everyone to read.
Lately, I have taken a break from my blog to try out something new, fitness. I know there are so many people online sharing their fitness journey and until recently they depressed me instead of motivating me. My head wasn’t in the right place and I was looking at girls with bodies that really weren’t possible for me to have.
It has taken me longer than I want to admit to realise that you can change your body but only if your head is in the right space. I would never commit to working out and eating great, it would last a few days before it was the weekend and I was enjoying GBK and a fruit cider.
About three months ago I came across Sarahs Day on YouTube and have never felt more motivated. Her knowledge on health and fitness was so inspiring, I wanted to know these things myself. It wasn’t all about the gym and putting the hours in, she made me think deeper than that. I want to be kind to my body and learn to love it.
Working out has also had massive benefits to my mental health and without it, I would be lost. When I was younger I would work out for one thing and one thing only, to get skinny but I have realised that I don’t want a thigh gap, it wouldn’t be a good look for me. I don’t want the world to be able to see my ribcage and now I kinda like my bum!
I’m two months into working out and I am loving it more than ever before, I’m learning new things every day and trying out new foods I never thought I would like. I wake up in the morning excited to work out and improve my body.
Confidence in every aspect is something that I have struggled with since I can remember. I don’t take pictures of myself, don’t wear pretty summer clothes and I haven’t been swimming since I was about 15 (and I’m now 21!). I was slowly falling out of love with my blog, from the look to the content and I wanted to reinvent myself. As fitness is the lifestyle I’m trying to achieve, what better thing to change my blog too? Don’t do it if you don’t love it, right?
As I’m totally new to the whole fitness thing I wanted to share it with you guys, I want to be real and show the good days as well as the bad. I want to be honest and open, I want to tell you when I’ve had a cheeky doughnut but also celebrate the good times and mini-milestones. I want to try new things and see how they work on my body, like most people I have suffered from acne and still have some even now as an adult, I want to look at foods and treatments that best suit me. I will be sharing my workouts with you guys and give weekly updates, I want to show my progress to you and also be able to look back on it myself and see how far I’ve come or see how much more work needs to be done. I never thought that I would be doing this solely because it was so far out of my comfort zone but I don’t want to stay in that zone anymore, it’s crap in there.
I will be babbling on about a lot on this blog, I want my own little space to motivate myself and maybe other people. The online fitness community seems fun and friendly, I can’t wait to start talking to more like-minded people!
