Promising myself that grey hair and picking up weight would never be my fortune. The box. We are in it. But there’s a reason why they call it ‘thinking outside the box’ and not ‘climbing outside the box’. I have to think first. I have to get my mind strong first before I can carve my body into shape. Inside the box. Inside I started excersizing. Inside I started running from the living room to the bathroom and back. Inside I started to work on those abs. Inside my yard I started running up and down. Inside the house. Inside my mind I was strong. Inside the box. “Look at how your body is changing!” “You are becoming so healthy!” “You look and feel amazing!” ... My fitness box.
