Most of my life I was active, but last year I encountered a hurdle in maintaining that. I got diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which held me back from keeping fit and working out. I’ve written about it here, but let me give you a glimpse of the sickness and my drive to get back in shape through my Power Mac #NoExcuses entry.
The challenge of Power Mac’s #NoExcuses contest is to share your fitness journey. This is mine, as I strive to get back in shape after an autoimmune flare-up. I got a little anxious with the thought of posting this video. I’ve been sharing a lot of my sickness journey online, but never thought I’d decide to share some of these videos/photos. I took them because I always document stuff even if I don’t plan on posting them. But when I saw the Power Mac Center #NoExcuses contest and felt the urge to join it, I knew it had to be shared.
I wasn’t sure if this would pass as a “fitness journey” because I’m not even close to my ideal fit self, but I thought that the beauty of a fitness journey isn’t all about looking and feeling great in a snap. It’s about the struggle and the motivation to push yourself, even when it gets frustrating. So this is my fitness journey, and I hope that it somehow inspires anyone who wants to get into an active lifestyle, or is struggling in the path, just like I am.
