    I Love Working Out.

    Recently rejoined the gym and exercise feels so good!  The pull on my muscles when I do the weight machines.  Working up a healthy sweat when I do cardio. Knowing that I am doing something good for my body.  It empowers me and I forget about all of my problems when...

    I use to never go to the gym.

    But I have started this year, and I got to say, I really love it. It feels wonderful once you're done, and that sore feeling you get the next day, I LOVE IT (could be I'm a masochist, lol). :D

    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.

    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

    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!
