Special to ChulucanasGym.
I worked out many years ago much motivated, strong, passionate. However, the motivation missed and I left the wonderful world of exercise. I accostumed the bad habits turned me into its slave.
So, it was when I decided to be normal. I ate out of my time or sometimes I didn’t eat neither, let’snot speaking about my bedtime, I went overnight daily. Fat never lacked, the terrible fast food. The alcohol never lacked in my ‘glorious’ normal life.
I woke up tired everyday, headache, sick. The gastritis was advancing as much as my great life advanced. I thought my body improved at a some moment itself. I was waiting for that ‘big miracle’ (in other words, immersing me into the mediocrity of something falls me down from the sky).
I was too sank into my normal life, what I was not hoping to leave out, because I enjoyed to disobey the needs of my body, I felt pleasure to know I would be “approved” by everybody. But upon a day, I decided to change by the invitation of my great friend David Saldarriaga Noel, who ever helps me to be better.
Everything was a challenge to me. From eating healthy to sleeping at my time due to insomnia, getting away the alcohol. Nothing was easy. However, I started to progress, I already felt no pain, I felt pleasure to see my progress, these little trials in context were what defined my advance (whether tiny or huge), I was proud of my changes. Later, I reminded the power of perseverance. I was becoming disciplined not thinking about, coming back to this wonderful world.
At the same time, I was tired because I never had done functional exercise, I was following up the routines everyday, until the Super Online Challenge event happened, which I felt very comfortable because everyone looked for the same like me – a better physical as well as mental version, a life out of the normal, a life out of the stress, a life made fit to me.
The motivation shared in the group is unique. It feels that joint power that motivates you to follow “the extra mile.” They helped me to change my habits avoiding to be one of these normal people. That’s about to follow forward, whether few, whether regular. I’m advancing, it’s my goal line, they’re my dreams, I set it up well and I did not give up. These are the results of not giving up!
