MOTIVATION MONDAY. Short autobiography about me...
11yrs old, diagnosed with acute kidney failure. Placed in Kosair Childrens Hospital.
3 years of prednisone, causing dramatic weight gain.
Spent high school as a fat band geek. Bullied. Mocked. Rejected...to the point of sitting with other schools at basketball games because thats where I felt welcomed.
At one game the cheer block from my high school actually chanted “lets get Carter” as the principal stood beside them and laughed.
At 17 I tried to enlist, was denied military entry due to prior kidney conditions. Kept fighting, got a waiver, and now coming up on 10yrs of service.
Became addicted to the pain of fitness...the work...the pleasure that comes from breaking yourself physically, over and over...and getting mentally tougher every damn time. Taking that anger out in the gym from all those years of pure shit.
I still train with that anger. I still push to exhaustion...to failure...until I’m too worn down to be mad. Then I pick myself up and walk out with my head held high and my body pumped, hardened, primed and ready for anything. Fuck bullies. Fuck not being good enough for someone else’s approval. I approve of me... and now I have the most beautiful woman, family, and amazing friends that do too. In my eyes, they are the only ones I need. I may not be some champion competitor bodybuilder...but I’m still winning something worth more than a sword or trophy. #motivation #motivationmonday #bodybuilding #bodybuildingmotivation #gym #gymmotivation #workoutmotivation #workout #fitness #igfitness #instagood #instafitness #transformation #bullies #dedication #determination #progress #muscle #npc #happiness #soldier #veteran #army #strong #instagood #instagram @carriemissgainz @bodybystorm1
