In 2020 I said "Enough!"
I had been working out for years, but I still didn't know how to stay lean. I was in a perpetual cycle of gaining and losing 5 kilos. I still didn't know how to eat well, and what foods worked for me. I had digestion issues. I still didn't know why my skin would breakout again and again, and how to heal it.
I didn't know what to do. I waited for experts to tell me what to eat, how much to lift, and how to take care of myself.
I didn't know much about myself because I hadn't taken the time to learn. I followed popular advice: keto, paleo, low-carb, high-carb, vegan, fasting, you name it....
Nothing worked for me. Nothing felt right. I would either hurt myself, or not know how to sustain the results, or not see the wanted results.
Once I said "Enough", I started listening to myself and learning about myself.
I stopped my keto experiment and started eating carbs. My sleep immediately improved. I started a stretching routine. I doubled down on running. I increased my weights.
Since 2020, I've learned to choose and put together 40-60 min workouts that I LOVE.
I learned to FEEL what workout I need on a given day.
I learned to lift and run without hurting myself.
I quit sugar.
I learned to TRUST my body.
I haven't completed a single fitness course. I have been committed to the daily practice of being attuned to my body.
Nobody knows you better than you. If experts say "keto is healthy", but my body hurts on keto, I'm going to trust my body.
I don't wear a Garmin, I don't know my pulse when I run, I don't measure my glucose levels... I rely on what I know without the technology. Because I know.
Learn to learn about YOU.
This will open doors to learning anything.
