My Journey To Fitness Starts Here

I joined a gym… and I like it. That is something that I never thought that I would hear myself say but it’s a fact.

Sure, when I’m there, I want to go home but I still stick at it and power through. That’s because even though I moan the whole time that I’m there, I actually enjoy it.

Exercise is like an addiction. Once you're in it, you feel like your body needs it.

“Why do you go the the gym if you’re so ‘body positive’?”

Many times on this blog, I have preached about diet culture being evil and how it’s important to work towards becoming body positive. And I still stand by that.

By I have a problem, you see. I’m a big girl, I weigh a lot (I won’t say how much) and it’s not healthy at all. Yes, I hate diet culture and that’s why I’m avoiding it but at the same time, I need to work on me. Does that make sense? I realise this post is very much a rambley mess..

My Fitness Plan

Recently I started a challenge called #100DaysOfFitness. This challenge means that for 100 days, you have to try to do something fitness related. This has been the push that I needed and I find that I seem to be really going for it. I’m walking places, heading to the gym and I’m even eating foods that my body needs instead of processed stuff that I used to eat too much of.

As well as working out for 100 days, I am aiming to live a healthier lifestyle. I plan on going swimming, working out at home and just living a happy and healthy life.

I have downloaded lots of workout tunes to my phone and I’ve followed all the fitness Instagram accounts.

Now it’s time to kick ass!!

    I totally get you, I used to be overweight and unfit and whilst I didn’t have a problem with how I looked and I still don’t really care it was my health I was more concerned about. I never quite realised just how badly in shape I was until I starting working out and taking better care of my diet and now it’s 5 years later and I never ever want to feel that sick again. I guess that’s my main motivation to exercise often and make better food choices although I will admit I’ve not been the best at doing that lately (I still need to learn to take better care of myself) but every little thing helps, it’s not about a diet it’s about feeling good within yourself and a lifestyle change for the better! Good luck xoxo

    I get this so hard. I am so not about the diet and body shaming culture – but I also know that my lifestyle and body aren’t where they’re comfortable and healthy. I really like the idea of #100DaysOfFitness. I very much struggle when trying to make exercise a part of my routine, and that might just be the kick in the ass I need.

    I totally get where your coming from, I’m by no means overweight or insecure but I definitely carry a couple of spare rolls that I’d be better off without. Good on you for finding something that works for you, 100 days sounds like a lot but a really good target! How many different ways to get active have you tried?

    The hardest days will be the first seven days, After that, it just becomes part of your daily routine.

    Oh I love this, 100 days of fitness, seems easy to mend to make your own challenge, just as long as you do something fitness wise everyday, am I on the right path? Keep it up 🙂

    It is true, if I can just get started with anything – I want to keep doing it!
    But man, I do not want to start exercising it seems.
