It ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.
Here’s some harsh truths about a fitness lifestyle.
There will be days you question why you do this.
There will be days look in the mirror and see zero progress.
There will be days when you look at someone else and wonder what their secret is.
There will be days when you have to grit your teeth and listen to that person at work telling you that you are doing everything wrong.
There will be days when you wish you could have someone else’s arms, bum or legs.
There will be days when you feel like you’re all alone.
There will be days where you sarcastically smirk at some better-than-you ass hat posting Instagram meme’s about eating kale when all you want to do is bury your head in a chocolate gateau.
There will be days when you want to push people off benches for taking endless selfies instead of training.
There will be days when you waste your own time giving your friends the advice they keep asking for, then watch as they proceed to apply none of it.
There will be days where you eat one treat food and feel like a fucking whale.
There will be days you see people on steroids then look at your own physique and think “That’s it. The only way to get in shape is to use drugs.”
There will be days when it’s wet and cold outside and you have to drag your ass out of bed at 5 a.m. because it’s the only time you’re able to fit your training into your day.
There will be days where you feel amazing immediately followed by days where you feel out of shape.
There will be days you beat yourself up for not being good enough.
There will be days when you feel angry at being constantly badgered to eat organic, gluten free, dairy-free, taste-free seeds when all you want to do is lose a bit of motherfucking weight.
There will be days when you’re the only person in the gym and you question your sanity.
There will be days you see acquaintances suddenly declare themselves “wellbeing coaches” and start posting about Juice Plus or Herbalife and have to refrain from hitting the unfriend button.
There will be days you also get sucked into buying these bullshit supplements and then kick yourself later.
There will be days you can’t get motivated to train.
There will be days when you’ll think “fuck it, I quit”.
But then there will be days when someone tells you they’ve watched your transformation over all this time, and you’ve inspired them to make a change in their own life.
And it’s all worth it.
