While being in the gym almost every day and working there gave me time to think about how this could really change a person’s life. While working at a gym for a year, I have come to notice the same faces walking through the doors covered in sweat every day to kick butt and continue to feel good about themselves. Seeing people walk out of that steamy door after a long or quick work out session with a smile on their faces, knowing that they did their best work out, always gives me the motivation to keep going. So here are 10 ways fitness could really change your life.

1. Your brain will become stress free!

After all the thinking that your brain does during the night and day when you have time on your hands, you think to yourself that you should probably do something about it to get that ‘ahhhh’ feeling. Fitness motivates you to clear your mind. While people workout, they usually get in the zone and forget about what they were thinking of before walking into the gym.

2. You will feel awesome after your workout!

Just like reason #1, you will feel a relief after your workout. Walking out of the gym, most people think to themselves that they KNOW they gave their all into this workout and it gives them confidence about everything else throughout the day!

3. You won’t eat as much junk food as you would if you weren’t working out

You work out to get healthier and maybe lose weight, if that’s what you want your goal to be. In order to lose weight, you need the right nutrients. Some people think that if stop eating or eat a little less than usual, but that doesn’t help. That actually makes things worse. When you work out, you won’t look at junk food the same way. Working out each day will make you not only feel good, but eat better too, which will help you in the long run!

4. You will get a ton of compliments on your progress!

Do you like receiving compliments? Well, getting into the gym will help you get them! People love seeing how hard you have been working. The compliments that people give you, will boost your confidence in yourself and get you to smile more, worry less.

5. Everyone loves seeing a positive attitude!

Have you noticed lately, that you haven’t been feeling your best? Are you so upset that you haven’t been able to focus on what you should be doing? Fitness is the way to go! All eyes are on you when someone sees that smile they’ve been waiting for. These compliments from those around you, will give you confidence and an extra boost to begin your day on the right track!

6. You will gain muscle, no more fat!

Fitness will help you get back on your feet, but you need to gradually get into it too. If you do the right things in the gym, like cardio, weights, you will gain that muscle that you have been dying to get. Cardio will help burn that fat, and weights like dumbbell’s will get you those muscles, but you need to keep it consistent, or you won’t gain as much muscle as you would have hoped. You know you’re doing it right if the results show! And if not, ask a trainer or a friend for help so you will get the body you want.

7. You’ll get that beach body that you’ve always wanted.

Have you been wanting to wear that bikini that you have had an eye on for months or a year now? Fitness will help you get there. As mentioned above, if you use the right equipment or forms, you will get there. What you need to keep in mind, however, is you need to have that patience. It takes a while for your body to adjust and get to where it wants to be. If you keep up a good pace with the right workouts, though, it will happen! The wait is worth it in the long run!

8. You’ll get better sleep at night!

Working out gets your body exhausted. If you are sweating, or feel tired/sore, that means you’re doing something right. This also means that you will have the best sleep of your life. When you work out, all the stress you had before, is usually gone after. This also might mean that you’ll have a better sleep that night. People tend to let their minds wonder at night and think too much. Fitness will help you clear your mind so you have a good night’s sleep.

9. You will begin drinking more water, which is extremely important for your body.

Staying hydrated is so important for you. Some people won’t realize it until they start working out, how important water really is for you. You shouldn’t drink it just when you’re thirsty or tired from a workout or in general. Every chance you get to drink water, you should take that opportunity because it’s that important and will give you the energy you want to have to work out. Water is just as important as food.

10. You will inspire other’s to get in shape too!

If other people see how well you are doing and want the same outcome or similar look as you have, you will impress those who don’t work out and get them to get a membership to! Bring them as a guest at first, to see if they like it and gradually get them to love it, but most importantly, stick with it. Going to the gym with a buddy, will actually motivate you to get you off the couch and get out there. It really works!

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Your Sexual Comment About My Body Really Isn't A Compliment, I Would Appreciate If You Stopped

I am human and I demand respect over my body.

I was 12 the first time a boy said: "you got a nice ass." I was taken back. What did you just say to me? Back then I wasn't as strong in knowing who I was/am. That comment stuck with me for a while. I recently thought about it. I realize now what that comment really was. While a boy thought it was a compliment, it wasn't. It was the start of harassment that boys are never told is wrong. Therefore, they continue to do it.

When I think about that comment from junior high, I think about the junior high students I know. I think about how upset I would be if one of the boys said that. I think about how much I would want to hug and remind the girl of who she really is. You see, these "compliments" start at a young age. Girls figure it means the boy likes her. They assume that he'll be different when they're dating. I beg to differ. It will get so much worse.

Some boys and men only see women as objects. They only see her as a thing of pleasure. They don't see the beauty that is in her personality. They don't stop to think about how intelligent she is. They skip over the fact of her being a human. It truly breaks my heart.

I keep going back to the first time a boy touched my butt, and how violated I felt. I told my teacher, and they did nothing about it. They said, "Oh, well he's a boy!!" WHAT. No, I am human and I demand respect over my body. When that boy touched my body when I never asked him to, I wanted to hide. I was not "turned on" by it like he thought I would be. I was not OK with it. And all I got was a form of "it's what boys do."

Your compliment about my body isn't a compliment. I am uncomfortable with it. I don't want to hear about how much you love my butt. Your compliment about my body has led me to be nervous around guys who have any sort of interest in me because I think they are only interested in what you once told me.

I am here to stand up for myself, finally, and other girls and women who are scared. I was once scared, but not anymore. I don't want to hear or read your pick up lines you think will flatter me. I want you to respect who I am. I want you to know I am not flattered by those gross comments about my body. I am here to stand up for those who are scared to be loud. That was once me, but not anymore.

Your compliments are not compliments. I am ready to see a change in our world. I am ready for your gross comments to stop. I am sick of seeing and hearing the same thing over and over again. I am more than a body. I am a human. I have a personality that I would love for you to get to know, but your pick-up lines are insulting. I would appreciate if you stopped.
