When the leaves start to fall I start feeling like its time to hibernate. While the sounds of chilling out on the couch wrapped in a warm blanket eating a big bowl of chili sound pretty amazing, after a week of that I’m bored! So I took matters into my own hands. I once again joined the gym. My body is thanking me and my mood is always better after I have hit the gym.
Getting me to the gym on the other hand isn’t always easy. Just like most of us I worry about how I look in my gym clothes, I think about how tired I am, and the laundry that needs to be folded and dinner that won’t make itself. Even when I’m on a cardio machine I think to myself….this is so freaking boring I would much rather be wakeboarding. That’s it, my motivation. I want to be a better wakeboarder. I have a goal! To reach that goal I have to get active. Now I have said this in the past and haven’t stuck with it. This time could be no different but what the hell do I have to lose? Oh yeah that 2nd chin I started growing….that’s what I have to loose!!
Wakeboarding is where I found inspiration to get started, however I am now realizing how I feel after my workout. My energy is way up, my anxiety is way down, and I eat much healthier on the days that I go to the gym. My inspiration has totally changed but still includes wakeboarding….I just want to be a happier and healthier person. Will I fuck up along the way…no doubt! I ate a bowl of chips in bed at 10pm last night but I felt bad while doing it! Its all adjusting, so clearly I’m still working out the kinks!
Photography is also another motivator. I want and need more energy to do all the things that I love to do with the people I love. In some ways I feel like I am breathing new air. I’ve lined up more photography jobs in the past month than I have in the past 6 months. I had a logo made and I’m starting to work on a new website for my photography. My heart feels happier, taking steps to feel better and to put more effort into the things I absolutely love to do. That being said feel free to visit my Facebook Page and check out my photography…..can’t wait till the new site is up and running! Book a session, say cheese and capture some memories!!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
