So, this will be a very focused post but it’s something that I hold dear to my heart.
I walked into Plyofit with so much reservation in my head and heart because I felt overwhelmed about the process of starting this journey. I mean, who could really blame me? When people take on new adventures it’s usually because they have experienced a little taste of it to have pushed them to jump all in. I did not. I had no idea what I was in for and was only doing to because I was living through Melissa’s Plyofit adventure and I was jealous of all the fun she was having. 🙂
I wanted to be a part of what Melissa was doing because she made it seem like it made her feel better. I could tell she enjoyed it and although when she and Glory invited me, it took a few weeks for me to actually go. I was super nervous. Partly because I had no idea how to even walk into a place like that.
But I did finally make it in. I walked in not even too sure on what to wear. But I went. I was super nervous and didn’t know what to expect.
There has never been a day that I have regretted it. Not one single day. I loved it from the beginning and although I had rough days at first, I, deep down, knew that I had found a second home. These were my people. Someone to fight the good fight and have fun at the same time. We all had different goals and all worked towards something different but we did it together.
Of course, it became something that I was proud of. Don’t get me wrong, there have been days that I have avoided going in but there were also days that I have gone to two sessions, just a few hours apart. There have been days that I have gone in only to have a therapy session because it was more important than working out for that day and there have been days where I only went in for a stretching session because I physically hurt. I guess what I’m trying to say is that this place was not a place that focused only on your physical growth but a place where you went for your personal, mental, and emotional growth.
I have learned so much over the years and I owe a lot of it to Plyo and Carlos. I’ve grown as a person in so many ways and have opened my eyes up to so many things that I can do. I appreciate the knowledge that I have picked up just from being around all the amazing people that go there. All beautiful, amazing, inspiring people that do what they do to be better, not only for themselves but for the people around them. I appreciate Carlos because all the times that he has taken time out of his busy schedule to teach or push me to be better has really helped me all parts of my life.
I hope that my 5th year is something that is memorable and brings great things to light. I have a lot of things that I want to accomplish and I know it will be tough. I have some things that I need to re-evaluate and some things I just need to push harder on. I’m not going to pretend that I haven’t lost my way a little during the last year but I will say that I’ve acknowledged it and am ready to get back on track. I deserve to give myself that opportunity to remember why I am doing this.
We are all capable of great things if we stay focused and keep attacking.
