Many people reach a point in life where they start taking their personal health seriously. Well I always faced the reality that every time I told myself and others I was committing myself to my personal fitness; a few weeks later I would be sitting on my couch playing Xbox 360 instead of worrying about my fitness. Simply because I didn’t want to put myself through the troubles of staying dedicated and pushing myself. I guess you could call me your typical quitter. I was in a serious relationship at the time and when that came to an end the last words I heard from my ex was how I would never satisfy myself because I was a quitter. I realized enough was ENOUGH it was up to nobody but ME to make it happen!
This was my weak-slender frame I was dealing with at the time, weighing less than my girlfriend of the time I knew I needed to turn myself around to make myself truly happy with who I was. I embarked on a journey that would take me several months but I knew it would be well worth it in the end for self-satisfaction and my personal health.
I would start by training 4 to 5 days a week, and focusing on my diet everyday of the week allowing myself one to two cheat meals per week to ease cravings, but at the same time monitoring my calories in those cheat meals. I knew if I took all the right steps nothing would hold me back from reaching my ultimate goal, of a nice lean muscular frame.
After 30 days of dedicated training and dieting I could slowly see my body changing form and molding into what I had seen in my mind as a mental image. I knew the only place to go from here was up!
Now here is how my body changed over time from following the same nutrition and fitness rules I will be applying to this blog for you all to follow and help guide you to the same fitness goals you may have!
Stay tuned for posts on proper nutrition, training, and motivational articles. Also you can send ANY questions you may have to my ask box; whether it’s gaining weight, losing weight, or training for a triathlon. I will feature some of them in future articles. Happy training all! As long as you believe in yourself, the sky is the limit!!
