There was a time in my life (many many times in my life, actually) that I had zero sports or health-inclined activities. I’d always have moments when I’d let my laziness take over for not just months, but years! You won’t see me step foot inside the gym or break a sweat. No morning walks. No quick run around the village. Nothing. Not even a few hula-hoops could get me moving. LOL. But then one day, I started to realize how sluggish, down and weak this kind of lifestyle is making me feel. It’s like I don’t have the energy to do anything, both physically and mentally. It was unhealthy and unproductive. I needed an active lifestyle. Pronto. So I went back to the gym and started working out religiously again. For me, exercising isn’t just about looking fit, but feeling fit as well. I feel refreshed and positive—like I can do anything I put my mind to. And this is what motivates me to keep going and to maintain the habit. Not the 6-pack abs everyone puts on a pedestal (although it wouldn’t hurt to have one. You see, I put them on a pedestal too, a very very high pedestal I will never ever reach. LOL!)
So now that I’m determined to keep this healthy lifestyle and forever shun the sluggish old me, I noticed how my wardrobe is slowly gaining more active wear and sports-friendly items. I’ve even started incorporating them into my outfits! Much like this pair of Nike running shoes I recently got from JD Sports. They’re not just meant for the gym, they’re OOTD-worthy too!
