I Don’t Do It For You

I don’t go to the gym for you.

I go to the gym for me.

I go to relieve stress, to feel my body move, to make it sweat. I go to feel energized, to sleep better and to invest in my health.

I don’t go so I can look like society’s picture of beauty.

I don’t go to look sexier for any man.

I go to feel sexy in my own skin. I go to improve my own picture of how I look, how I feel, who I am.

Working out makes me feel stronger, more secure and raises my self-esteem.

Lifting weights makes me feel like I can defend myself. Spinning makes me feel like I can push my way through life’s challenges. Swimming makes me feel calm. Running makes me feel free.

I don’t go to the gym for you.

I go to the gym for me.

    I love it! When I go, I go for me too….it’s just hard to make the time for me these days. Just a season.
