Exercise can change URLife. It’s not just about the physical changes you see. It’s about making feeling happy! When you exercise, happy hormones are released, and you automatically start to feel good. Even a simple activity like walking can boost UR mood. I’ve also noticed that when I miss my workout sessions, I get a little sad. Once you exercise regularly UR life will become more blissful, and you will soon start looking forward to UR workout sessions!

Exercise is not only about slimming down or losing weight. It’s about getting fit and loving what you do to stay healthy. I’m incredibly passionate about working out, and I love it! You don’t have to do specific exercises to work out. You can find any activity that you enjoy doing, and it will be the same as working out. I started working out because I was very petite, and I wanted to look a little broader. The grass is always greener on the other side. When UR too small you want to look a little bigger. When UR a little healthy, you want to look a bit thin. That’s how it started, but then it made me feel very powerful and strong.

For instance, you can play UR favourite music and dance to burn some calories. If you like the outdoors, choose to go for a hike or take your pet out for a run on the beach or in the park.
The idea is to stay active! Once you exercise regularly, you will begin to feel the difference, and this will keep you motivated to continue with what you’re doing.

If you’re new to exercising and working out in the gym, remember that hard work pays off! I always wanted to go to the gym and push a little harder and add another 2.5 kgs. Just keep going, and it won’t be long before you see some great results! I like to hit the gym as frequently as possible. I love working out because it makes me feel peppy and energetic. But at the same time, I don’t push myself over the edge. It’s also crucial for me to reward myself for the hard work I put in. So I make sure I do something that makes me feel great about myself.

I don’t have any particular secret to staying fit. Besides being very consistent with my workouts, I eat only vegan foods and ensure I’m well hydrated. I also avoid junk food at all costs and opt only for balanced meals and healthy snacks. To keep boredom away, I make sure my workouts are varied. This also helps me stay excited about my workouts! Variety is vital to stay motivated to work out regularly. Working out makes me feel more confident and also provides me with a sense of contentment and achievement. It was the high of becoming stronger and stronger every day that keeps me going!
