I have really stepped back from the fitness industry due to negative affect it was having on me. I was turned off every time I went on facebook and saw post after post of these girls taking daily pictures of their abs and going on and on about their cardio sessions and complaining about not getting sweets. I was thinking why in the hell are you doing this if you are so miserable! I began looking for more positive influences and realizing what this whole obsessive behavior was doing to me and seeing it live and in action with all these other girls. I see its alot about attention and selfishness. Why would anyone want haters to be their motivators? To me that is terrible. That is not spreading positive energy. I saw then I wanted as far away from this as I could get. I love being healthy inside and out. I love to be lean and fit but not at the cost of my health or at being a selfish obsessive person.
I have turned to those people who feed me spiritually and send positive energy out into the universe. My fitness is still priority but if I miss a meal or workout it is ok and I am not going to stress about it and post my every movement on facebook for people to know about. My private life is mine. My abs are mine and so are my cardio sessions.
I am walking away with a spirit renewed and working towards repairing my physical body. I am glad I went through the experience. I believe that I have more awareness regarding working out and dieting. I strive to be selfLESS and positive.
