Goodbye everyone. This is probably my last post here on Dayre before it closes.
Dayre has served me well over the past 1-2 years I’ve been using it. It accompanied me through one of my toughest time (during the 2nd half of 2016) and my fitness journey last year. So many milestones and memories have been recorded over here and I am thankful for its existence.
It provided me with the platform to vent my frustrations whenever I need some kind of venting outlet - be in relationship, work or fitness. Although at the start of the year - even before Dayre announced its closure - I’ve been using it sparingly, but I know there’s a place I could seek comfort in at the end of the day.
Through the help of Dayre, I managed to embark in my fitness journey some point at this point in time last year. The 100 days might seem short but it was hell lot challenging. Through Dayre, I recorded my progress and everything that comes along the way. Getting to know like-minded people and encouraging one another to become fit together. That was the best moment in my life thus far.
I know I lost myself towards the end of last year and undoing what I’ve worked so hard for. Gaining 5kg eventually, I feel that I’ve let down a lot of people - those who’ve encouraged me and those who, if any, were inspired by me - and most importantly, myself. I have no face to talk about fitness anymore and I am unfit - pun intended - to be speaking about it anymore.
The closure of Dayre seems to come at the right time for me. I will need time to get myself back and I promised right here, right now, that I’ll 振作起來. This journey will be tougher that the one I embarked on last year and my only hope is that I can survive this totally. As mentally and physically draining it’s going to be, I will not fail this time because I have everything to lose.
I will take a break from everything after this as I search for my motivation and my resilience.
But I’ll promise a different me in a year time. And let’s hope the better me will emerge as a result.
I’ll be back. Stronger.
