The road to living healthy and actively can be a long journey for some of us. Some of us never grew up on the athletic or active path, then some of us fell off the track (literally and figuratively). Whether you joined a gym or boot camp or are embarking on a gym-free exercise regime, some of us will definitely consider whether having an exercise partner is a good decision. Here are some thoughts to consider when that thought enters your mind.
As someone who works in a high-stress environment with long working hours, I know how important exercise is to keeping the mind calmer and yet seems implausible due to time constraints. Knowing these facts all too well, I made a promise to myself a few years ago that I would take better care of my body (and as a result, my mind).
I have a bad and good habit of using certain principles to tweak my workouts, like tonight's Pyramid. It's a good habit for rediscovering old ways and learning new ways to keep my body in shape. It's a bad habit because it always leaves me in a dilemma about whether or not I can share my experiences and routines with others without running the risk of infringing on someone's intellectual rights or stepping on people's toes by not giving credit where it's due.
Warning: This post is not meant to offend or put down any fitness/health blogger or any of their many followers. In fact, I follow, look up to and respect quite a few myself. This is merely a different point of view and popular or unpopular as it may be, it's out there.
The motivation behind my tagline "Island Fit Femme" hinges from my identity, my roots and my journey as a female trying to stay physically healthy and active. Everywhere you turn online, you find another "fitspiration" post or blog. There goes another amazingly ripped, ten-pack-abbed woman with implausibly large pecs/breasts (okay, maybe the word isn't so much implausible as it is unattainable) and an even less plausible tan/glow/grease-down. If I've seen them, I'm sure that many others have as well.
