How Bodybuilding Will Help You Get Over Your ‘X’ Partner

If you are past your teen years, it is very likely that you have suffered a heart break or two. If so, then you will know how sh*t you will feel afterwards, especially if you were the one that got dumped. That will often lead you to feel empty inside, lead you to over eat, not take care of your self and curl up into a corner and cry.

However, things aren’t so bad in the world of fitness and bodybuilding. Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned pro in the gym, here are some ways that body building will help you get over that b***t of a girlfriend/ boyfriend.

Confidence
Countries like the USA are built on confidence and confidence is a trait of most successful people. If you are succeeding in the gym, then confidence will likely be one of your traits too.

Yes, you will naturally feel down about the relationship break up, but being a confident bodybuilder will help you get over that pretty quickly because fitness and confidence together will naturally make you feel good about yourself. If you are feeling good about yourself most of the time, then you won’t be spending much time worrying about why ‘Mr/Miss damaged goods’ broke up with you. But what you will start to think is,

‘Is that person stupid…? Breaking up with ME!!’

And soon enough they may just start calling you back. Too late for that, you’ve moved on.

Be Social

As I mentioned back in ‘Finding love at the gym‘, the gym is one of the top places where you’ll find love. If not that, then you definitely find yourself many date potentials. The more you see and interact with those individuals, the sooner you’ll forget about that a*hole of a boyfriend/ girlfriend and wonder why you was with them in the first place.

This is cliché, but when one door closes, it leaves room for another to open, so speed up that process and be social.

Get Your Mind Active

As a stayfitbug.com reader, you’ll know by now how much I push to be dedicated and disciplined to get your body to be where you need it to be. One key part of being disciplined in bodybuilding is to learn how to control your diet. So that means cutting back on certain foods and not submitting to temptation, which will require you to keep your mind active on something other than the prior.

This mind set of cutting something out of your life is what you will need to do with your ‘Now X Partner’. Yes… you will already be on the right track from being confident and social, but to add to that, get rid of reminders of them.

Get rid of their:-

  • Clothes
  • Phone Numbers
  • Smell in your house

Everything! You’ve now moved on

Goals

I have talked about the personal trait of being goal driven before, and I always will, as you often need to be reminded of what your goals are. As a bodybuilder, a goal driven mind set is what you’ll need to have to succeed, and when you do begin to focus on this mind set, you will not want to waste time on things you cannot change. Shit will happen, and when it does, you learn to let go of the past and move on.

This is the mindset that will help you forget about your X partner all so easily.

If you haven’t had your heart broken yet, I can guarantee that it will happen sometime in your future. But instead of becoming a victim of the inevitable (Curling up into a corner and crying) you will spend more time in the gym following the guidance listed above.

When you do move on and become a better new and improved person, just know that you will be getting phone calls from the ‘X’. What happens at that moment is up to you.

What did you do when you broke up with your X partner?

Did you curl up into a ball and cry?

Did you spend more time at the gym?

Did it affect your workouts?
