Writing the first entry of a blog is the WORST. There's basically no way you can do it without sounding like a weiner. But you gotta do it. So if you read this and think, 'this chick kinda sounds like a weiner,' I know, ok?
I've wanted to start a new blog for a while now, however the Kardashians were still interesting for a while there and that really ate up a lot of my free time. But I think they really jumped the shark with Rob trying to start a fucking sock company, and I just can't make myself care about Mrs Eastwood and Company, you know? So I've got some time to spare.
I've known for a long time what I wanted to write about. I'm a pretty flighty brained person, and my interests are always changing. I have five years of post secondary education in four different programs at three schools with one diploma (sorry about that, parents). The only thing that has remained a consistent and super positive part of my life is fitness. Going to the gym and learning how work out properly and effectively is by far the best thing I've ever done for myself.
I want to write about fitness and how it has made my life better for two reasons. First is that in the past year or so, I've started to find it a bit harder to stay on track and be at the gym as much as I want to be. I've always been really dedicated to getting my ass to the gym, and I feel like I've fallen off a bit. I think it's just part of the whole bullshit growing up deal where you have more responsibilites and less time to do the things you actually want to do. I feel like writing a blog-especially if anyone reads it-will hold me more accountable and keep me pushing myself.
The second reason is that I don't feel like I connect with many of the people who write about fitness. While there are a few I look up to, most of them seem like super athletes who probably played volleyball in high school. There's nothing wrong with that. Actually it's awesome, and they're probably way better people than I am. It's just not something I can relate to at all. When I was in high school I used to skip gym class to smoke cigarettes on the curb in front of school. I am not in ANY way a natural athlete. The only thing I was good at in gym class was dodging balls in prison ball. I mean,that's proven a pretty good transferable skill later in life, but it's not really a great athletic feat. Yeah I'm in pretty good shape these days but it has taken me a long time to figure it out. I think people could use some real talk when it comes to fitness, and I hope that I can provide that.
