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 Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

The Only Difference Between A Summer Body And Your Winter Body Is Your Attitude

Your love handles need love, too.

Summer is coming and for most, this is a very exciting time. The weather is warm, school is out, and the beaches are packed. Although summer is great most of the time, it can also be super stressful for people who aren't confident in their bodies. There is a body ideal that is set on media sharing sites such as Instagram, Facebook, and VSCO that makes people feel like they need to fit that image to be considered attractive.

My first problem is, well, these images are unrealistic in the first place. Most of the time, people posting photos of them in their bikinis or swim trunks have edited the photo in some way. Whether they've edited it to appear skinnier, more muscular, or tanner, odds are they've doctored the photo in some way. Even if they haven't, who cares!

I know I've personally struggled when it comes time to buy a bathing suit. Honestly, it's the worst thing ever. Looking in the mirror and seeing what you look like after the holidays and 4 months without the sun can be shocking. It's time to embrace this! I've seen so many people posting "working on my summer body," or "getting ready for bikini season," and it's honestly just sad.

A person shouldn't have to change their everyday lifestyle to want to "look good" in their bathing suit. What's wrong with a little extra weight on the thighs or some cellulite on your butt? As long as you feel confident with your body, you should want to embrace it and show it off!

Feeling confident in today's world is harder than ever for women. The media is pushing body positivity, but it doesn't seem like it applies to everyone. If a celebrity is a little thicker, everyone applauds them and talks about how beautiful they are, "even though they're bigger," and that is exactly where the problem lies. Shifting the standard of beauty because someone is bigger totally discredits whatever compliments they receive. It's a backhanded compliment and it's not fair to include a comment about their weight while trying to compliment them. Someone's beauty should not be defined by how big or small they are and saying people are an exception to the rule probably hurts them more than you think.

I don't know about you but I won't be doing anything to prepare my body for this summer because these people are going to take what I give them! All in all, love yourself first and it'll give others the opportunity to do the same!
