    I love the gym! It gives me sanctuary!

    Use the gym, track, or open road as a sanctuary to get away from everything. Don’t let negative emotion control you. Harness it and release it as positive energy in your sanctuary.

    I go about 4 times a week

    and I use a lot of the free weights. I just love the feeling it gives me when I'm done. I'm tired, sweaty and breathing heavy. Also I always get a protein shake after I'm done. It helps keep me at a steady weight and I love the feeling of "I can barely lift my arms" lol.

    Sell yourself short on nutrition

    and you're selling yourself short on maximizing your physique. I have to admit that I am very fortunate to have the genetics to acquire my goals in the gym, but don't get it twisted: "It's not a trick. It's not a scheme. It's a design!" It's not enough [for me] to, merely, eat...

    The gym is a great place

    where you can let everything out. It's a place where you can blow off steam and plus benefit yourself physically which is why I love it so much. I go every day but the days I love the most are when I'm feeling so angry or built up with emotion and I can just blow it off

    Exercise for the body is

    as important as exercise for the mind. I enjoy my gym sessions every week. I keep fit in body. I wear my shorts and tee, I work on the machines and triumph in their ingenuity. My body grows stronger.

    I began lifting about 2 years ago.

    At first it was hard and I found many reasons not to be consistent! About seven months ago something changed!!! I hired a nutritionist and got serious with my diet/lifting. Since August I've put on 40lbs. I can't get enough!! I just want to get huge! I love it!
