I feel like lately I’ve been focusing on what everyone else is doing. Three months ago I started my fitness IG. I followed so many inspirational people and really posted often on what I was up to with my fitness journey and what not.
After awhile I noticed how obsessive I was becoming with posting to my fitness fitfam and how I wanted to workout exactly the way tee individuals were so I could look like them. I hated these workouts. I’m not someone who likes routines. I’m definitely not someone who enjoys doing the same sort of thing at the gym all the time either. It’s a constant struggle between myself and I. I want to be a weight lifter, a yogi, a runner, or a lazy shit who does nothing. I don’t think I could ever classify as one or other besides yogi because that is something I religiously practice.
Why did I care so much what these people thought of me? Why did I want to conform and become these people when my journey is my own. You can’t be anyone Vito itself is what I came to realize. This journey whether it be to lose weight, better your life, or just try something new, it’s YOUR journey not anyone you follow on Instagram. So, the other day I said goodbye to my fitfam and deleted my fitness IG handle and since then I’ve felt better. I want this wellness journey to be what I want it to be. If I want to lift some weights, awesome! If I want to run my ass off on the treadmill, sweet! If I want to downward facing dog till I pass out, terrific! That’s the beauty of this life that we live, we can mold it and ourselves to be exactly how we want it to be.
