Many people slave through workouts with the intent of looking better. I think this is a byproduct of society today. We are bombarded with images that show that beautiful things can make us happy and feel fulfilled. In my experience, looking your best is only achieved when FEELING your best shines inside out. I have to be honest, I have expensive taste and a constant desire to adorn myself with superficial additions as proven through my Athleta and Lululemon accounts, and my constant striving for the perfect Balayage hairstyle…but that is the Girlie Girl in me….and its only the icing on the cake when it comes to feeling like I am putting my best self forward.
I feel my best when I perform my best. This can be attributed to the accomplishment and pride when i crush a goal and the endorphin’s and other hormones that swim through me all day long and give me the everlasting feeling of vitality and zestfulness, and the ability to always progress with my workouts because they are built around doing not looking.
It is no surprise for you to hear that I know in my heart that someone striving for physical improvements will never meet their potential if their workouts are not focused on performing better. When someone asks me how to drop weight or feel better all around my first thought is that they need to learn to move better.
