The strongest force to who we are and how we act is how we define ourselves. The labels we place on ourselves. .
These come from;
🔹What other people have identified us as.
🔹 What we think others think of us.
. “I’m not that kind of person.” Or “it’s just who I am.”
Well when did you define yourself? Whatever people have their identity attached to, they live. . Stop using this as an excuse and safety net to prevent your change. Expand your identity..

@csydelko im coming for your brand (the visor) today has been fine I need to do more cardio. I just don’t like it as much as weights. On a unrelated note but I guess it has to do with diet ??? I’ve been obsessed with garlic and hot chili oil lately. Like both together. It’s so good.
Something that really gets on my tits is people's opinion that anyone who posts pics of themselves with they're tops off or semi naked pics are showing off, they are self obsorbed, arrogant, shallow people that have no fucking life.
I'm not talking about people in the fitness industry, more normal kind of folk saying this or that and poking fun at anyone that posts pics of they're physique. This is kinda like fat shaming but in the opposite form ( 😂 fucking crazy I know ) The thing is I wouldn't say I bad word about anyone unless it is deserved and at that I would say it to they're face. I wouldn't say anything about anyone that is unfit or overweight cos well that's there choice and to be frank I don't really give a fuck about anyone apart from myself and my family.
I'm the most grounded humble person ever and I don't think cos I'm in relatively good shape that I'm better that anyone. I do what I do cos it makes me feel good about my myself, it enables me to be able to handle all the shit that life throws at me which u will know can be a lot. Life can be really unfair and cruel and if lifting weights and eating heathily most of the time helps me to deal with that then that's what I need to do.
I have suffered with anxiety and depression and I train cos I'd never want to ever have to deal with shit like that again.
The thing is I don't even think or talk about the gym apart from the 1hr a day I'm there. I do cardio and train at times where it doesn't affect my family life, I do it to work off all the food I eat cos I love fucking food and I wouldn't want to deprive myself of anything I love to eat. I drink every fucking weekend, I choose to drink stuff that is lower in calories cos to me it's sensible . Tonight I'm drinking beer and red wine cos I fucking want to but I'll get up in the morning and go for a run to work it off.
It seems that in some societies( especially in Scotland) taking care of yourself and posting pics of your hard work is something to be ashamed of but I say fuck off ill do what I fucking want. I DO get that all the selfies and top less pics don't show the real me and I should post some more real shit people can relate to
