In November of last year, I made a promise to myself that I’d go to the gym. I told myself that I could get in good shape, but I just never had the time to. I decided to make a small daily goal of going to the gym and eating healthy. Within 30 days, these small daily investments had accumulated into huge difference. Having lost 10 pounds, I knew I had to keep on going.
Along the way, there were small breaks in workouts and binges, but it is all part of the learning process. Working on your health and nutrition really is a battle of learning about yourself and how to build good habits. Knowing that each little habit would have a large improvement on you in the long run. All of which is a test of self-discipline.
After 120 days or so I had lost 37 pounds and decided my new goal was to focus on putting on muscle. This of course takes far longer than losing weight, but it can be patiently achieved.
At day 180 I had bulked and cut for the first time and realized how annoying it can be to have to cut after you just enjoyed many foods.
I kept doing this over and over until now. After a full year, the simple little habits and tasks have added up over time into a huge amount of progress. If there’s one thing I learned, it’s that with patience and simplification of a large goal into small tasks, you can achieve even the most difficult goals you have.
I hope this can serve as an inspiration. I truly feel amazing to be able to share this story as it has helped me realize my own potential and perhaps it will do the same for you. 🙏❤️
