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!

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

Hey,

So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sincerely,

Me

In Real Life, 'Plus Size' Means A Size 16 And Up, Not Just Women Who Are Size 8's With Big Breasts

The media needs to understand this, and give recognition to actual plus-size women.

Recently, a British reality dating TV show called "Love Island" introduced that a plus-sized model would be in the season five lineup of contestants. This decision was made after the show was called out for not having enough diversity in its contestants. However, the internet was quick to point out that this "plus-size model" is not an accurate representation of the plus-size community.

It is so frustrating that the media picks and chooses women that are the "ideal" version of plus sized. In the fashion world, plus-size starts at size 8. EIGHT. In real life, plus-size women are women who are size 16 and up. Plunkett Research, a marketing research company, estimated in 2018 that 68% of women in America wear a size 16 to 18. This is a vast difference to what we are being told by the media. Just because a woman is curvy and has big breasts, does NOT mean that they are plus size. Marketing teams for television shows, magazines, and other forms of media need to realize that the industry's idea of plus size is not proportionate to reality.

I am all for inclusion, but I also recognize that in order for inclusion to actually happen, it needs to be accurate.

"Love Island" is not the only culprit of being unrealistic in woman's sizes, and I don't fully blame them for this choice. I think this is a perfect example of the unrealistic expectations that our society puts on women. When the media tells the world that expectations are vastly different from reality, it causes women to internalize that message and compare themselves to these unrealistic standards.

By bringing the truth to the public, it allows women to know that they should not compare themselves and feel bad about themselves. Everyone is beautiful. Picking and choosing the "ideal" woman or the "ideal" plus-size woman is completely deceitful. We as a society need to do better.
