A friend and I were talking about fitness today, She was glad and also wondered why I continued to be active even long after the Biggest Loser was over. Aside from doing WODs, I decided to do Yoga with Bikram Yoga Manila and some boxing and Muai Thai at FTX. She wondered why I bothered doing it.
Simply put, I do it because I can. Back when I was 481 pounds, I could not do any of those and I was fine with that. I didn’t want to get all down, sweaty and dirty. Now, I can run, jump, do burpees. flip myself, fold, twist, jab, straight, and upper cut and it’s all thanks to fitness.
I think because you are able to do it is a much, much better reason to get into a physical activity that just needing it. I do it because I can and not just because I want to do it.
Soon, I will post what a typical day of fitness would be for me. Today was WOD day.
