Media personality Sheila Mwanyigha has said that “advancing in age” was one of the main factors that elicited her decision to hit the gym as dieting alone did not work the trick to attaining the lifestyle she desired. She has however kept her age under wraps.
Sheila started getting more serious with her fitness journey in 2021 has also revealed that seeing her friends die of Covid-19 also motivated her.
Seeing people I knew die of Covid-19-related complications moved me. And I think one or two of them did not even know they had underlying conditions and by the time they were finding out, they were were dead and buried,”SHEILA
The second thing that gave me a wake up call is that I am advancing in age. Not that I am an ancestor or anything but you are just thinking that already my bandwidth of coping with things is faulty and life is not necessarily getting easier. But you have to get stronger. How do you get stronger when the first thing you wake up n the morning is that you are tired? This was a warming bell and I realized I could not fix the problem I was having with dieting,”Sheila told THE NATION
The results of her lifestyle are notable. She however, says that it is not something that happened overnight. She is on this lifestyle for the long haul.
I am not on a fitness journey because that means you reach your desired target and stop. What I am going through is a life overhaul, a holistic process which is for the rest of my life. When you are fixing your life, it is something else. It is changing how you approach everything, and that is not easy,”
My whole lifestyle has changed. What you are seeing on the outside is because of the things that are happening on the inside. It is never something that just happens overnight.”SHEILA
