Today I mustered up the courage to share my blog with my family and friends via Instagram and Facebook. A few close friends had encouraged me to do so, but I couldn’t help but hold doubts – What if no one reads it? What if people put me down? (Let’s be honest, there are a lot of people who are negative about #fitspo style posts, and I’ve copped my fair share of it).
An even bigger, scarier thought is what if I fail? What if I share my goals and dreams with the world, and then fail to achieve them? Everyone would know that I failed. Then I realized that no matter the outcome, I will still be a winner; for I will have learnt so much about myself, become a stronger person both mentally and physically, and developed the confidence to hold my head high and say “I’m proud of what I’ve achieved”. After all, it’s all about the journey not the destination.
So, I went ahead and shared this blog (along with some of my goals and dreams) with the world! And I was met with overwhelming support. I can’t believe how many wonderful, encouraging people I have in my life – people I know, and people I don’t know. So publicly, I want to say THANK YOU to every single one of you who has sent me a message of encouragement or taken the time to look at this blog or check out my Instagram @bec.cameron – it really is heart warming 🙂
And for a quick wrap up of where I’m at:
I’ve just finished my second cycle of training – I say cycle because my training program is over 6 days (2 days on, 1 off, 2 days on, 1 off = 1 cycle). I’m feeling strong, and have already started increasing my weights.
I’ve noticed in particular, my legs and stomach are looking leaner. I didn’t expect to see my body changing so quickly, when I’m still in the early days of the training program. I guess it just goes to show that it really is ‘80% diet, 20% gym’!
