So I recently had a conversation with a friend on how no one ever talks about the struggle before getting to their dream bodies. And I could not help but agree with this. Healthy people on social media need to realize that posting their meals and workouts could only go so far in motivating people. I mean, sure nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it. But working out is not as easy and oh so much fun as everyone makes it out to be; Although It does make you feel good afterwards.
The first step is figuring out what you want to change in your body ,Its obviously the easiest step. I found my issues a couple years before I started working on it. I just kept thinking; “if only I get myself to the gym, I would be toned in a month,” Lol total lie by the way. I mean I started off with the mentality that if I worked out really hard, I could get away with eating the same crap I used to. As you’d imagine I had no idea what I was doing. So I kept this up for a while and was not seeing any change whatsoever and gave up hope on getting rid of my annoying problem.
Now education is definitely key because back in college, I took a nutrition class and this gave me an idea on how to start my journey. This did not mean I got rid of my problem areas with the snap of my fingers. During that summer, I decided to be healthier both inside an out. The thing to eating clean is you will feel cleaner and happier no matter how long it takes to reach your goal. And even after reaching this, you hopefully will not go back to old ways because it’ll feel so damn good. Referencing my last two posts, making a list of meals you want to prepare will help you stay on track.
I know this is basically of summary of everything on the healthy life struggle but the purpose of this post today was to let you guys know that patience and perseverance are key. Also, most importantly getting that nutrition right. It might not be as easy at first to give up on things that you’d rather have instead of healthy food. But hey I’m here for you guys in every step you are taking in your health journey.
Alright, thats all I have for today . Have a good week guys 🙂
Love Mfon 🙂 xx
