My name is Mia Lopez and I have to confess something.
I was on a path to become a full-blown meathead.
Proteins, creatines, BCAAs, N.O. Boosters…you name it and I’ve probably tried it at least once.
Back in the day, when I graduated from high school, I was obsessed with bulking up.
Gym was my life!
I spent countless of hours on meal planning, food shopping, sourcing high quality ingredients, and of course exercising.
I remember the times when I was going to the gym two times a day, while practising yoga in the morning and jogging or swimming in the evening.
✔ Perfect shape
Yet for some reason I wasn’t satisfied with myself and my lifestyle.
One day I felt subtle pain and doctor told me I have abdominal hernia.
After the surgery I had to rest for 2 months. I could continue with intense workout regime after 4 months.
That meant putting a stop on my fitness progress.
But also, it gave me plenty of time to rethink my fitness and life goals.
Is fitness my true priority in life?
Do I have to go to such an extreme level and become a meathead even though I have no intentions of being a professional bodybuilder?
That’s when I realized that balance between health, wealth and relationships are the foundations of a fulfilling life.
Yes, I still want to look perfect in my favorite clothes, to be healthy and look great naked, but I also want to have time for education, career, friends, boyfriend, myself…and someday kids.
Simply put, I want to get as much health and fitness benefits with as least time invested.
Hernia had to happen for me to realize that fitness IS and SHOULD be secondary if you have no intentions of becoming a professional athlete.
Off course, after 4 months I lost muscle volume and had to start all over again.
But this time, with a totally different approach!
