-80lbs, What Do I Think About “Exercise” Now, Compared To Before?

-80lbs, What Do I Think About “Exercise” Now, Compared To Before?
I used to think of exercise as a punishment;

I was fat, so I had to work out.

That made working out hard.

It sucked.

I hated every day. And every work out.

Today, -80 pounds later, I am still never looking forward to a work out tbh;

But my mindset about fitness and exercise has truly changed altogether.

Exercise isn’t a punishment.

And to me, it’s not always “a celebration of what your body can do” either just because I don’t want a figurative party, I want abs lol.

I look at exercise like a chore.

Just like I don’t necessarily enjoy doing laundry, or cleaning the kitchen/bathroom, those are activities that can’t be ignored, and I always feel better after I tend to them.

My space is clean, and I feel energized and my mind slightly less cluttered.

Exercise is a bodily chore that must be done in order to keep a healthy, happy, uncluttered mind/body/soul.

And the more chores / exercise I do, I will be awarded accordingly.

Like before if I did all my chores my parents would let me stay out later, give me more allowance, or just say thanks because that’s what I’m sposed to do lol.

Exactly. Those household actions are necessary.

That’s how I look at Exercise, as a bodily chore. And the more I Exercise, the healthier I am, and reaping more effects of an active lifestyle, like abs, lol.

So when you’re thinking about whether or not you wanna hit the gym,

Remember this:

Exercise is a bodily chore that must be done in order to keep a healthy, happy, uncluttered mind/body/soul.

Let’s get it Fit Fam! Did you work out today?


Peace and blessings✨,
