The other day while watching a TV show, a celebrity was asked the usual question, what is one thing that she regrets the most. And as usual she said, she doesn’t regret anything, she lived a full life and is proud of the mistakes she made and blah.. blah.. Well, this might be true for a few of us, who do not regret anything in life. But not me. I regret a lot of things that I did in my past. And if given a chance, I would certainly like to go back in time and correct them, or at least tell my younger self, to choose wisely.
Anyhow, today I am sharing the biggest regret of my life. I regret not finding ‘fitness’ sooner. I never exercised in my teens. Never played any sport in school. I rode a bike though, but that was my mode of travel (from home to school, school to friend’s house.. you the idea?), not from an ‘exercise’ point of view. (And thanks to that, my legs are good kids). I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self the importance of fitness. Oh, how I wish, I wish!
Not until I turned 25 is when I started working out, and day by day the passion kept growing. The more I read, researched, the more I learnt. And there is still so, so, so much to learn! Just because I was not ‘physically’ active in my younger years, my body does not respond to exercise as quick as I expect it to. I work twice as hard compared to other people, to achieve the same kind of results (and to keep my metabolism high!). This is unfortunate, I know. But I am still very, very grateful that I finally found my calling. As they say, better late than never.
A lot of people in my circle keep telling me how I should ‘enjoy’ my life, since I don’t party, drink alcohol or eat out (too much), or socialize till late on weekends or blah.. blah..!! Well, let me say this to them – I AM ENJOYING LIFE. My means of enjoyment might not be same as you, but I love my life. I love lifting weights, I love eating healthy, I love cooking for myself, all this gives me so much happiness and contentment that it’s difficult to describe in words.
Anyways, rant over. If you are here just for the pictures.. keep scrolling!
