Remember your why.
I always try to inspire people and motivate them, I love helping others reaching their goals, but today I had a breakdown. I couldn’t see any progress in myself, my weight is not going down, and I just couldn’t keep my sh*t together. I was working out this morning, when I started crying. Well, in that moment, I knew I forgot my WHY.
We all have it, and it may change through the years. I actually think my why changed a lot since the beginning of my fitness journey. I started because I wanted to look good and lose fat, but it has become much more than just that.
But today, when I started crying, I found myself asking “WHY am I even doing that? Why did I wake up at 6am to go to the gym? Why am I starving so much? Why don’t I just give up and do like 99% of the girls out there? They seem having a better time”
I was forgetting my why, and I had to step back and watch the bigger picture for a second. As soon as I asked myself WHY, I realized that this truly is what I want to do. WHY? Because I love seeing my body changing according to what I do, to how I treat it. I love working out, even at 7am, because I love the endorphins it gives me. I love feeling my muscles connected to my brain. But this is not my only why.
I do this because I am the kind of person that has a vision and does everything to get there. Because I have always wanted to be the best at everything: school, games, competitions. I fell in love with this sport because beating others is fun, but the toughest challenge is beating yourself. Today I was about to lose, but I fought back and I won. I won this battle, and I’m gonna start from here.
It is ok to have breakdowns, it is ok to ask yourself why. Just breathe, answer the question, and start from there.
This clip is right after when I found my WHY again. I’m still working on my back, but I hope someday I will be able to grow these wings and fly up there, where I know I’m meant to be.
