Sometimes I question if I even have a life outside of fitness and the answer is, kind of. lol
I have chosen the more intense/extreme version of living the fit lifestyle. And it basically consumes my thoughts and being but it doesn't bother me because I love it and it is my passion so I mean that explains why it consumes me. One of my clients calls me a spartan, you can guess why.
There are not many things I enjoy as much as physical activity or health related ways to spend my time.
I do things outside of the actual training percentage of my life that are still health related:
I have my water jug with me 90% of the time.
I eat prepped meals every couple of hours (some days are better than others)
I work in a gym
I take supplements (some twice a day)
I make protein shakes and bcaa mixes
I foam roll in and out of the gym if I am feelin it at home
I play competitive, high-level, volleyball
I practice ju-jitsu and combat street defense
I love hiking and walking
I also consume my time on YouTube with fitness videos or checkin up the latest posts from people I follow on Instagram or other social medias
Not to mention my job is on my mind 24/7 so there is that
Things that aren't necessarily physical that I love to do:
Spend time with family and friends
Writing (I used to write a lot more than I do now, I will have to share a poem in my next post!)
Reading (I need to do more of this)
Watch Movies and TV (I don't have/make much time for this but I actually enjoy a lot of shows), specifically: Walking Dead, Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor Pad, Married at First Sight, Arranged, Silicon Valley, The Messengers, Game Shows, Workaholics, Parks and Rec., I am sure I am missing some but then again I don't get much time to just veg and when I do I usually sleep or mindlessly scroll through IG.
Even though I don't experiment much I actually love trying new healthy recipes like protein muffins, ice cream, pancakes, just baking in general (I would rather bake than cook, yes)
So if anyone besides me was wondering if I have a life outside of fitness the answer is yes! :) I just choose the fitness related aspects of my life much more often.
