Have you ever walked into a clothing store and left sweating, like you just ran a 3k? It happens to me all the time. I’ll grab a few items, visualizing the style on the mannequin as myself. I’ll rush over to the fitting room to try it on and then, boom, reality hits. I’ve fallen back to Earth with a bead of sweat, trickling down my forehead, a pair of jeans halfway up my thighs and a tshirt with a tube around the bottom.
As I take the first couple steps of the walk-of- shame out the fitting room, I ask myself — every time — how did this happen? Now, I’m frantically searching for the next size up, but they don’t carry it. Great. Guess I’ll settle for something else that fits. I’ve been obese my whole life — that was really hard to type out. I was leaning towards using the word “Big”, but who am I kidding? I honestly think that I’ve tried EVERY diet plan, workout routine, and fad that is out there, and not to say that they don’t work, but maybe it’s not for me. In my 20+ years of yo-yo dieting, I came to the realization that everything actually works…….kinda.
You might be asking yourself “if everything works, then why are you so unhealthy? Or….. what’s the point of this blog?” Well, let me make myself a bit clearer. Most diets and fitness routines work for every individual differently. For example, the Paleo diet may work for me, while the result may not be nearly as effective for you.
Our bodies react differently to various different workouts, foods, and emotions, and it’s up to us to find the perfect regimen that gets the most out of our bodies. That’s what this site is about. It’s a platform that allows us to try on different types of diets, workout routines, plans, and find what fits our needs and goals. With the input of the guests that have been on a journey, is on a journey, fitness experts, or the casual visitor, you can find the method that best fits you.
