The fitness section is something you guys have been SO stoked about which makes me SO stoked. I’ve been WAY too precious with it. I keep telling my trainer, “okay okay we’ll figure it out soon!”
NO LAUREN WE NEED TO FIGURE IT OUT NOW!
I’m not sure if that was my inner demons or troll comments but either way they’re right!
All jokes aside, fitness is something that has taken over my LIFE the past year and a half.
My most vivid memory is when I started dating my now ex-boyfriend and told him I thought microwavable hot dogs were straight PROTEIN! I thought I was soo healthy.
Hot dogs aren’t even real meat? So, I’m PRETTY SURE my body actually hated me.
So around that time is when I started changing my lifestyle completely. I hired a personal trainer and started changing the way I ate. Both of these things might sound super unrealistic and too hard, but I promise there are SO many ways to turn your lifestyle around and that is what this section is ALL about. I know how hard it is to do, and that’s why I am here to help!
For the record, I have always been a very tiny/skinny person. I was very fit in high school because I was a competitive cheerleader but ate like SHIT. Then I gained a little bit of weight in college (classic) but was still very small. It wasn’t until I traded my body fat for lean muscle mass, and my hot dogs for turkey burgers, that I really realized, “WOAH, living a healthy lifestyle is SO important”
It seriously changed my life for the better.
Also, I am in no way, shape, or form perfect at this and no one is. Well maybe a few people but not me. I still eat pizza and cookies and skip workouts on days where I decided wine was better than water at dinner. So please, please don’t be too hard on yourself! Change your lifestyle little bits at a time and do what works for YOU!
Don’t do it so you can look in the mirror and see someone else. You will always be you!
Do it to be the best version of yourself, to feel good from the inside and radiate it out!
It sounds cheesy, but seriously, it’s SO true.
I go crazy if I feel gross. Granted, I’m way too hard on myself so please learn from my flaws, but since I know what I feel like at my best, I don’t enjoy feeling otherwise.
If you set small goals, you achieve them, and life can only go up from there.
Trust the process. All the ups and downs will be worth it.
