Those have been the thoughts of late. I have triumphed over certain problems that I’ve been having on the mental and physical side. The year has been hard and at the same time unforgettable. My weight-loss journey got to a great start this year and in total I’ve managed to loss 22 kg so far, which is a fair amount, but I’ll keep on working and want to lose more. What can I say – losing is my game (pun intended).
In may I struggled a sporting injury and was forced to take a long, long recovery after breaking my two toes. Unfortunately the toes didn’t heal quite as planned and now I’m waiting to see the orthopedic surgeon and they have to operate the foot for a full recovery. Never the less the training will keep on going!
Today I was at the gym working my ass of as usual and there came these two guys who were definitely pros by the looks of it: Rogue-fitness wear all the way and fit like no other. Nevertheless, I felt like they were my peers: did the same things in the warm-up routine as I did etc. It occurred to me, that fitness and healthy life isn’t just the things you do – it is the idea of a better you, trying to reach your goal and always trying to do a little better than before. Failure is almost inevitable – but without failure one cannot learn anything. That is process. The bottom line, I realized today that applying this ideology to every aspect of my life is the key of success. I’ve been struggling with school for some time now, but I did manage to act on the matter and strive for the better today as well, it made me feel good. I know this might sound bit a cliche, but never the less, it was an epiphany needed.
My journey has been amazing, I’ve been able to do things that I didn’t think possible in January, like hitting my dead lift record to 140 kg or learn the technique how to bench press properly. And what more is there to come?
Although life has been hard this year – CrossTraining has made it easier for me, being my own escape.
Take care guys.
