No, I did this because I wanted to be able to go home at night and tell myself that my job wasn't the hardest part of my day.
Being able to say this honestly actually made life and work seem easier.
Committing to a fit and healthy lifestyle isn't easy.
We have to make sacrifices, frequently opting for physical labor over fun or partying, and choosing healthy foods over fattening desserts or alcohol.
When you meet a male bodybuilder, rest assured he is committed to a cause and unafraid of taking on challenges.
It wasn't because I was a poor worker or wanted an easy job—in fact, I was in construction at the time.These choices all take a great deal of commitment if we're going to be successful.It's no secret why more people aren't bodybuilders. Most people simply don't have the drive, dedication, and ambition to continually push themselves to follow through and commit to the lifestyle 24/7.This can be an important factor in personal relationships, not to mention setting professional and educational goals. Most bodybuilders eat clean and healthy, but ordering in just about any restaurant is a minefield of bad food choices: high-fat foods, thousand-calorie sugary desserts, and tons of carbs.
This comes from a man's perspective, and relates primarily to lessons learned in the gym and how they can be applied to other aspects of our lives. I remember telling myself as a young man that I always wanted to work harder in the gym than I did at work. On the contrary, I can think of five reasons women should, in fact, date a guy like me. This work ethic carries through every aspect of our lives. When we commit to working our butts off in the gym, and we're not paid one red cent for it, working hard just becomes an aspect of our personality.
