Difference From Working Out And Not Working Out

This past week and the week before have been really eye-opening for me.

Every time I fall off the band wagon of working out and eating clean, I get into the most depressing mood ever, and become a whole different person. I can even notice myself changing during the process, and my mind is even telling me to get back on the wagon of working out and eating clean, but something else is just stopping me.

It’s the person that takes over my body when I’m in such a slump. I’ve realized I become so negative, insecure, and I start to hate myself.

When I’m taking in foods that are so bad for me, and not being physically active at all, my body really starts to take a toll, but my mind does as well.

This has to be what is motivating me more than ANYTHING to stay on track.

After being back on it for a week, I feel more motivated than ever. I went through a week or two of doing absolutely nothing, and eating garbage during this holiday season.

It made me realize how important this lifestyle is for me, and how I need to keep this lifestyle up for my entire life. My body is so used to healthy foods and being on a workout regimen, that it can’t be reversed again.

I absolutely love who I am when I am in control of what I eat, and in control of my mind as well. When I am eating clean and in control, I feel like I can do anything.

My strength and power shoots through the roof, and my mentality is so strong as well. I am usually never insecure about anything, and my confidence sky rockets.

The natural hormones of endorphins swarming around my bloodstream really gives such a natural high that I have fallen in love with. When my body doesn’t get this feeling for a period of time… I hate the feeling I get. Laziness and my body simply don’t go together anymore like they used to. I’m actually surprised I went so many years without working out and eating healthy.

After being in this process, my body and life has transformed into something different. This isn’t just a temporary thing anymore, this is my whole lifestyle. I breathe fitness and being healthy. It isn’t all about looks anymore for me, it’s about feeling so incredibly happy when I am in control.

Do you feel the same way I do when you haven’t worked out and ate clean for a while?

I feel like my body transforms into 2 different people. When I am working and eating right, I feel unstoppable..But when it’s the other way around, all I want to do is stay cooped up in my room and read all day.


  1. I work out almost every day…..I think I can count on one hand how many days I missed in 2013. If I miss a day, it’s like skipping a meal or forgetting to breath. I just don’t feel right. My wife can tell too, as I get anxious and cranky. I’m really struggling to get a hold of my eating though – but I recently found pictures of myself at a waterpark from 2 years ago when I was at my lowest adult weight. That’s motivating me right now!

  2. Yes! I can tell a complete difference in my moods. The holidays have really gotten in the way of my working out and I’m such a different person. I’ve been moody and cranky and I hate it. I’m so glad the holidays are over and I can get back into the swing of things — working out and eating right.
