Finding Motivation to Workout

In the past year, my body has gone through changes. It was something I brushed off at first, but now it’s taking a toll on me. I’m doing things I never did before like, cancelling on plans if they include going to the beach or pool.

This is all very to new. I’ve always been a skinny girl. I’ve never once had any problems with my weight.  But I guess it’s true what they say, eventually what you eat will catch up to you. Especially if you’re not a very active person. Which I am not. I played tennis when I was younger, and recently I picked up the habit again. But for years, I did no sports or any activities. Which I am now starting to regret.

Since I’ve been skinny my entire life, I assumed that I’d remain skinny. But that’s not at all the case. I’m not fat, I’m not skinny, but I’m not healthy either.

I’m lazier than ever. I get tired easy. I eat more than I should. I can’t do certain activities, without feeling completely exhausted, that a person my age should normally be able to do.

Overall, I feel like I’m not in control of my body and it sucks. But, I plan to change that.

Because if not, it will only get worst from this point on. I’ve been working out slowly but surely. I’m noticing a positive change within myself, which is progress.

In the past I’ve consumed weight-loss supplements, dietary tea’s, and other vitamins to help. But the truth is none of it works unless you make it work. You can’t depend on other factors to get you to your goal. Only you can do that. Life is too short too make petty excuses and procrastinate. The longer I wait to achieve anything, the harder it will be. So, really what’s standing in the way? Me.

Change begins with you.
