I did 45 min. cardio, some abs, and 45 min. of full stretching today. Working out is something I’ve done my whole life and gives me solace, peace of mind, focus, and is a place where I find “true euphoria.”
Gym is a place of solace to me. I find my true soul mates at the gym. I used to weight train a lot, me and my boyfriend. I used to go to the gym and just weight train for hours, listen to rock and roll, look at magazines, and just totally enjoy every single minute of it. All the guys left me alone. They didn’t bother me. I felt so comfortable around those guys too. That was my old gym. I really miss it.
When I go to the gym, I want to get lost in my workouts. I’ve always been this way. I’ve always made my best bonds through sports or academics. I used to see my college friends at the gym all the time and some of them went on to become professional athletes.
Working out and doing math problem solving: these (2) things have always given me a deep sense of focus, peace, feeling of oneness w/ myself, true euphoria, and sense of fulfillment.
Just like the gym, I used to LOVE to do my homework, go to classes, and listen to lectures.
Some people say, oh why do you work out so much, you must have an eating disorder, or it doesn’t look good when girls get really muscular, this must mean you are a lesbian. These are stereo types.
What if I asked you to stop doing something that you really enjoy? Like working on your car, cooking, or music ?
If you were really into something, wouldn’t you want to do it all the time? Doesn’t it give you focus and true joy? 16 months ago
