What saved me life?

We all have things that we can’t live without. I have fitness. I can’t imagine my life without it. It gave me something more than just a better body shape, it made me emotionally stronger and create a habit to reach my goals.

Last year was very difficult for me because I was struggling to write dissertation.Due to the fact that I have to spend 300+ hours on it, I used to write it every day. I used to spend 14 hours on my laptop and I felt emotionally tired.  To cheer myself out, I went to the gym and it did wonders to me. First of all, this is magic treatment from stress, it works even better than all the SPA days that I ever had. Secondly, you are more powerful and strong.

Working out isn’t easy and it never would. If it feels easy for you, all you need to do is to increase speed/ weight/ time etc. When I feel that I have reached my limit, this is where the second breath is taking place, especially when I do cardio. If I am out of power, I motivate myself with a little treat. By this I mean a trick to increase you time for 1 or 2 min. When the time is almost finished on your machine, increase your time again, but don’t do it like ” +10 minutes” because you will be very struggling and might not finish it.I usually do 1 min if I am too tired, and 2 min when I still have power. I came across this trick, where I couldn’t run more than 35 min on 7th speed. For me it works wonders, because after 1 min I think “I made it! I did better than last time”. At the end, I run 50 min without stop which was a good time for me.

Now, a year passed since I do workouts properly.By world “properly” I mean I exercise 3 times per week, my workout lasts 2 hours and my then I do stretching to avoid pain in the next day.

Now fitness  is part of my life, a healthy routine. Every time I go to the gym, I go with the particular goal. If it is my usual program, I tell myself I can increase weight to 5kg more or I will run an extra mile. It always helps me to perform better on every workout.  I hope this trick will work good for you too.

Break up

break up isnt easy. Now I finally have power to announce that I broke up with chocolate forever, yes, I mean it.

I ate all Milka chocolate alone.. Apparently, I am alergic to it. And i am done with that. Now i dont even look at the shelves with chocolate, even chocolate sweets are no no for me. 

Seriously, this time I mean it. Goodbye chocolate, we had such awonderful  time together. 

What if?

What if one day you realize that things you are doing doesn’t make you happy at all? You are very lucky if you never feel this way before. But what if u do feel that and you are scared? Well, there are only two ways: (carry on sitting on a confort zone which isn’t that bad sometimes)  or starting out everything from beginning and be prepared for unknown, scary things, words, places…you never know what you going to find unless you try.

I started everything again, from scratch, with zero knowledge, understanding and clue about what is going to happen next but I had motivation,motivation  to try and see what is gonna happen?

Things are not gonna be easy and straighforwards. Sometimes I feel I lost all the puzzle and there is only one piece left with strange shapes around it. I don’t give up. I search, look for them everywhere I can. now I found just two, they all look different and doesn’t make any sense. But I keep looking and soon I will find more.

I dont regret that I get rid of my comfort zone and start looking around! This is a long journey but I know I CAN make it !!! I know I can work harder than ever and my motivation doesnt have a limit!!!
