Crush Your Fitness Goals For 2018

crushfitness

Have you ever thought to yourself: I want his or her body. I wish I can get his/her body. I want to be skinny. I want to lose weight.

It shouldn’t be that way at all.

You should be thinking: I want to live a healthy life. I want to be active. I want to be a better version of myself.

In the end, it all comes down to the real reason as to why you want to work out, exercise or go to the gym, which is: for yourself. Not anyone else, but yourself.

Focus on you and your own body. Work on your body, figure out what works best for you.

You don’t need to have another person’s body. You don’t need to be envious of others and their physique. You don’t need to compare yourself with others. You are perfect in every way, those people who you wish to become? They all have flaws, just like you. They too had to work hard to get to where they are. You can do it too. You should not only focus just on losing weight since it will become a short-term thing.

Be the better version of yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself well, I’m sure as hell that I believe in you! Even if it takes time, no matter how long it is.

You. Will. Get. There.

There’s no rush anyway, this isn’t a race. There’s no reason to be chasing time (unless you have a photoshoot coming up or you’re competing).

Don’t let other people’s words affect you, especially if they are demotivating words.

Only you know your progress and how bad or well you are doing. The others don’t know the effort you put in or how hard you work.

You wanna gain more muscle or fat because you’re too skinny?

You can do it.

You wanna lose fat (NOT lose weight!) and reduce the flabbiness of your arms and stomach?

You can do it.

You can bloody do it. 2018? Yeah. You’re gonna be whopping 2018’s ass because you are so gonna goddamn get what you want and ACHIEVE it. You don’t even need to just go to the gym.

Yoga? POP Pilates? Muay Thai? Zumba? Jogging? Running? Football? Swimming?

You can achieve your fitness goals with ALL of the above! Find what you love, and do it. Don’t just be a couch potato. The main reason for all of these goals is toย live a healthy, well-balanced life.

Of course, nutrition plays a HUGE part as well. But if you don’t consume junk food or food with high sodium every single day & hour, I’m sure you’re good to go.

It’s all about BALANCE.

Don’t be eating McDonald’s and cup noodles every day then wonder why nothing is changing.

Plan it out, and you’ll get there.

Figure out what is your 2018 Fitness Goal, and take the steps necessary to achieve it.

Remember, this is not a diet. This is not a short-term thing.

It is long-term, it is a lifestyle. It is a lifelong journey.

Why I Started This Lifestyle

Honestly, I’ve been wanting to join a gym and start living a healthy active lifestyle since 2014 but never gotten a chance to until 2016. The reason? I am VERY shy to enter a gym with full of guys and surrounded by a bunch of people (tbh I still am shy sometimes). I felt like I could get judged all the time.. Once again, fear was what stopped me from doing things that I want to do. In terms of food wise, naturally the motivation isn’t there if there isn’t something that helps you along with it.

In my high school days I did do some workouts at home, just some arms and abs workout aside from jogging. I was skinny. Back then it was all baby gains (which I was somehow happy about LOL)… BUT from Form 3 onwards I pretty much ate McDonalds almost every week after tuition (and then I was no longer skinny but skinny FAT). Holy crap you should see my tummy. Everyday bloated as hell I looked like I had a beer belly (well ok it wasnt THAT bad but in my eyes it was). I wanted to loose fat.. well no surprise there since everybody that starts off usually just wanna lose weight and fats.

FAST FORWARD TO 2016 when I FINALLY decided to join a gym thanks to my boyfie (actually all the guys I’ve dated works out like what’s with me and dating guys that are into building muscles and shit?). WHERE DID I EVEN GET THE GUTS TO DO IT?!?!? I don’t even know. I really hate being in a place full of people (gosh, introvert problems halp) BUT I PULLED THROUGH! And good thing I did because from that day onwards, my lifestyle changed to basically cutting all the sodas, junk food and so on.. especially all the binge eating McDonalds. I still do eat and drink all those stuff here and there but compared to last time, it’s just not as often as before. Definitely there was a HUGE change to my body.. and I was in love with the progress.

The moment I saw my waist from 26inches to 24inches.. *jumps up and down* And when my stomach fat decreased… yup. Although back then when I first started going to the gym and eating healthy it felt like it was just a phase… but now it became more of a lifestyle. You automatically just start to make healthier choices (but of course with some cheats here and there because hello? food is love? food is life?) and your body automatically needs the gym. Not to mention when you’re just so done with life so you release all the bottled up feelings when working out ๐Ÿ™‚

….and that’s basically why and how I started.

Going to the gym when there’s a shitload of people (especially guys) still feels very intimidating to me until now, but I try to push that aside and just work out… in a corner. I LIKE MY CORNERS OKAY! AWAYYYY from everyone.. hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€
