    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...

    Recently Rejoined And Feeling Fantastic

    I'd intended to postpone acquiring a membership to the local community gym until I had procured a job, but that's taking a while. (And from the official unemployment statistics for my agegroup in this area, I expect it to take a lot longer to get even a min.wage job ... military...

    Ok.. Today is the second day of my gym regime

    and we're still snowed in, yet I am more than motivated to stick to my plans; especially considering that I have one person in my ear telling me "fat is where it's at" and then I have another person in my other ear saying "you never finish anything you start!" Well... I'll just...

    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

    When I started working night shifts I wasn't

    able to follow mma lessons anymore so I started fitness 5 times a week. Within a month I had grown so much that people who hadn't seen me for a whyle asked if I was on steroids. I loved it. I started studying again in February and moved, and now I really don't feel like fitness...

    The gym is the only thing

    that keeps me going plus I eat entirely too much not to go. I love feeling the pump and I love being sore the next day.

    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!

    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 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.

    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.

    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

    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...
