This shift was absolutely huge for me: life is incredibly short, and it was time to stop constantly engaging in negative self-talk when all I did was being human, so what? I went out and I ate a little more food than usual. I am only human, and I very well enjoyed my time with my friends and all the yummy food I ate.

Embarking on a fat-loss journey can feel daunting and overwhelming with all the information that is given to you but think of it as a lifestyle change and you are just trying to modify what you have been eating, work out a little more, get a certified trainer to coach you in your weight lifting journey, make sure you are getting enough sleep and try to minimize daily stresses with meditation or crystals or whatever tools you resonate with.

Oh my. Where do I begin? Bodybuilding did not happen by chance. However, my journey to bodybuilding is probably more intentional than I thought. I tried a million and one type of trainings regime such as CrossFit, yoga, sprints, long distance running, powerlifting, HIIT the list goes on and they were all great fun and during that period of my life it was the best type of training for me. However, I did not see real changes until I found bodybuilding, meal prepping and understanding macros and micros and the biggest taboo, counting calories.

I cherish friendships so much it took everything out of me.. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But in any kind of friendship or relationship, you have the right to put your emotion first before others. You’re allowed to feel and express your emotions or pain. You have the right to your experience – even if it’s different from that of other people. You have the right to say no; saying no doesn’t make you selfish.
