Working out keeps me grounded and in a routine. It's a great way for me to relieve stress and stay humble through the struggle. There is no perfect lifter out there, you can always be improving technique-wise or strength-wise. It also allows me to be more lenient with what I eat (huge cookie and donut fan).
This is a 5-month “before and after” from training at Ambitious Athletics. The biggest changes were hidden in my gains in core strength. I feel lighter when doing anything physical while also feeling stronger. I actually weigh about 13 pounds less.
You’ll always be willing to invest time and energy into things you’re passionate about, like your children, friends, family, and a rewarding job. But the things on the opposite end of the spectrum are like an energy suck, stripping you of your motivation and leaving you feeling exhausted.
