This quote caught my eye this morning and I couldn’t just let it set. How true is this?! Most people that I talk to just want to have a body they can be confident about. They want to fit into a certain size jean or tone one specific area they feel is worse off than another.
Once we begin a lifestyle that revolves around our health, it becomes much deeper than just a size of jean. No, we don’t all have to turn into body builders but we all develop some sort of passion for health and fitness.
For me, I began studying nutrition and fitness due to having severe asthma and wanting to overcome it. Did this cure my asthma, nope! Am I still living a healthy, fit lifestyle? YES! So, why didn’t I quit when my goals didn’t get reached? I am 10x healthier than I ever was before and for me, this journey is deeper than 6 pack abs. This journey is about finding my own soul. It has enabled me to let my true self out to shine. Fitness as gave me the confidence I needed to become a trainer and nutrition coach. It has made me a stronger woman. It gave me a foundation on which to raise my child in a healthy manner. It allows me to be a better mom and wife. Fitness is my therapy and my me-time. Fitness releases my captive emotions. The amount of passion that I have poured into my health and my body is not about the muscle anymore, it is so much deeper than that.
I am strong. I am capable. I am powerful. I am beautiful.
