It’s that time of the year when all the gays are freaking out and furiously hitting the gym whilst starving themselves so they can look good for pride.
Given, yes I am furiously hitting the gym but I’m maintaining a somewhat balanced diet. I already battled with anorexia last year and that shit was NOT cute.
Yeah, I do want to look good when I’m wearing little to no clothing but that’s not the main reason I try to to cardio at least once a week as well as working out a different muscle group when I’m at the gym, I do want to look good for EDC later this month, I’ll admit that. Pride I could give two shits about but if I look good for that too then so be it but I’m not one of those queens that walks around the club with my shirt off at Pride, I save my almost nakedness for raves.
ANYWAY, I’ll stop rambling and get to the point of this post:
My dad had a triple bypass last year. He has terrible eating habits and probably hasn’t worked out in over 10-15 years. Having a heart condition runs in my family, or rather “runs in my family” because the main majority of my family has terrible eating habits, it was brought the inevitable loss of my favorite uncle.
I don’t want to end up like my dad and I sure as hell don’t want to end up like my uncle. So I’m being proactive about treating my heart correctly by doing a half hour of cardio at least three times a week. Not to mention I feel so much better after I work out; it’s a great method of stress relief and the endorphins I get feel amazing.
I want to get really fit and stay that way, I don’t want to pass bad genetics to my own children when I have them and I want to encourage them to handle their health properly as well.
It definitely doesn’t hurt that I’ll be happy with the way I look naked as well. My point being: there’s the right motivation to get in shape and there’s the wrong motivation, and if you’re happy with your body the way it looks, cool, but don’t be a bitch and put people down for the way their body looks, that’s just rude.
