Why I Don’t Record My Workouts

Since I started posting about my weight loss journey I’ve gotten questions about diet, how I fast and my exercise regime.

I’ve been pretty open about my diet. I post what I eat daily. Whether it’s good, bad, or just meh.

I also post my fasting stats daily. It always shows when I start, when I end and the total amount of hours I’ve fasted for.

But with my exercise, I always say what I do and I don’t post it. I post my workout stats and post-workout selfie.

But the workout itself I don’t show, and I know many persons are curious as to why.

I workout by myself and I like to work out by myself. But if I really wanted to I could have bought one of those phone cases that allow you to record yourself.

In all honesty, my workout sessions are my therapy. They help me deal with my anxiety and depression.

I usually get into a zone and it’s honestly quite personal to me and I don’t know if I can be that vulnerable. At least not yet!

Also, I’ve seen persons be quite cruel and mean to persons who have taken their time to record and share their workouts.

I don’t understand why you have to judge a person’s form. Somethings take time.

I’ve been overweight my whole adult life. I’m adjusting in a new body that’s constantly changing. I’m finding my balance and figuring things out.

So, I don’t want to be scrutinized doing something that I love and I’m evolving and thriving in daily. I feel like it would take the joy out of it.

For that reason, I choose not to share that part of my journey. At least not yet. It could happen one day.

But, I sometimes ask myself “Does that make you weak for not being as transparent as you can be?”

As of right now, I don’t have an answer.

I’m just trying to do my best to hopefully inspire someone who is where I once was to just move!

Remember the first step is trying and the next step is not giving up when things get hard!

Keep going! If no one else believes in you know that I do. You’ve got this!
