Imagine this amazing, euphoric feeling you could get every day if you wanted to that’s beneficial to your life, too! That’s what exercising will do for you! It has definitely done it for me. Since I started with Oblique, I almost immediately felt better about myself — who I was and who I wanted to be. The first day I stepped into that gym I felt so intimidated and wondered if I had gotten in over my head. But I just gave it a chance and met with my trainer, Jason Fiutem; then we got right to work! A couple months went by, and I had a couple of setbacks that I had to work through mentally and physically. But something I never did was give up. I believe the hardest part is the mental aspect of it. I have had days where I absolutely did not feel like working out or where I just wanted to eat everything! That’s when self-discipline comes in.
Motivation and self-discipline are to me the two most important tools you must have. The mental part of a weight loss journey or any journey is going to be the most difficult part that’s when I think to myself how bad do I want this? How bad do I want to feel good about my body? How bad do I want to wear that swimsuit? How bad do I want to be at my target weight for the first time in my entire life? How bad do I want to live a long and healthy life? The answer to all of those questions is what motivates me! I want to know that I did the best I could do and of course reap the benefits of being fit! You just feel good all the way around when you’re happy with the body you know you worked hard for. I’m still so full of excitement and cannot wait to see what my body will look like and how much more confident I will be once I reach my goals.
