Meet Simonka Bohackova, UNBEATEN athlete!

December 04, 2017

Hey guys! My name is Simona, I am 20 years old student at the university, healthy lifestyle and fitness lover. My passion is dancing and traveling and everything connected with it, including gastronomy and global cuisine tasting. But not to sound too cliché or sweet, my journey to fitness and to the point of life that I am in right now wasn’t easy at all.

No one in my family did fitness before, I chose this way of lifestyle myself. It all started after my puberty. You see I ate a bit more than I should and gained a little weight that I wanted to lose. Only like 3-4 kilos to feel a little better. Don’t get me wrong I was never fat but I am sure you understand… My body was just a bit rounded without any shapes. And that is how it all began. 

I was around 15-16 years old and it wasn’t really easy to find much information about fitness on the Internet. At least not without proper resources and it was quite hard getting to them. That time there were not such “boom” for fitness as it is today. I did mostly home workouts based on bodyweight YouTube videos. And my meal plan? I acquired wrong myths, threw away several groceries, separated good food from the bad food and after some time I even created a huge barrier toward food which was followed by a fear. And do you know what happened to those 3-4 kilos? It wasn’t enough anymore… Watching the weight going down made me actually happy and from my original 58 kilos weight I dropped it to 43-44 kilos. It was insane…

I became obsessed with my body, with details like having space between the inner thighs and keeping constant flat belly. I was obsessed with food, carbs and strong cardio. Some people were commenting my results as negative but that time I saw all of them to be positive because I knew I did something that was actually working. I loved that first thing people noticed was how lean I was. What I loved even more was to feel like a feather. I thought I will reach the highest satisfaction if I go even deeper. Well on contrary… 

The biggest paradox was that after I realized being so lean wasn’t a way I started with something I was most afraid of. I started to eat more… With that I started with strength workouts and I felt the satisfaction again. I even got those compliments again and it was just so great to feel strong, full of energy and acquiring proper body shape!  My body was getting back to normal and I was falling for fitness even more. The feeling was so strong that I even decided to go to a fitness contest to let myself but also everyone else know that I can do it! 

Sadly, that time I didn’t know, there was more than only one method to prepare for contest than the one that most fitness athletes in my country prefer. Diet was extremely strict with a lot of cardio. I was so dedicated and after I finally finished the whole process it took its price. After the contest, I ended up being without goals. And I also thought I could eat everything. Realising the whole preparation process and problems I had before somehow took me down as it all ended.

My body was tired and damaged with a strong need to recover. What do you think it asked for? Well food… Suddenly from my 48 kilos weight it turned out to be 68 after only 4 months. I just couldn’t control it. I was a type of person that didn’t stop until I reached the worst stage which was screaming for a change. You might be saying like omg, just stop eating or save it for tomorrow… no in that moment you want everything because it comforts you. Food becomes the only way that satisfy your problems. 

And do you know when is the best time to eat? Alone.  Worst thing was to be home alone. To eat everything you wanted secretly and alone. It was pretty simple to go for a food shopping and eat all of it on your way home. Only myself, food and my thoughts. Until it become worst and my weight increased to remind me it was time to stop. 

Finally, I lost around 10 kilos and for some time maintained my weight to be 58 kilos. I felt better but still didn’t feel this was the way. After 2 years I even tried to contest again. I wanted to try if I still want but also can do it. Well and I did it! It was hard but I did it. Preparation process was better, healthier and more flexible. Throughout calculation of calories and macronutrients I got through it but didn’t feel that passion and satisfaction that I felt before. I completed only first contest and that was enough! It wasn’t for me anymore, so I stopped.

I gained many experiences and skills, met many people so I don’t regret it at all. But it was enough. My goal is to find balance in everything and live a life where I can keep my shape the same throughout the whole year without so many restrictions. With healthy mind, healthy body and healthy life. I will for sure talk about eating disorders more. This problem keeps getting bigger and more serious, therefore we definitely need to talk about it and spread more knowledge on this topic.

And what is my situation now? I won’t lie it is not perfect but I am learning every day. I am learning and finding my own way, the right way. And I think now, it might be the one. I am already finding balance in everything. In food, workouts and in my mind. Some things and symptoms stay with you forever. For sure there are days that I fall but I always bounce back and keep going. No matter how many times you fall, know that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes we can help others but not ourselves and it is always up to us to start trying and fighting again. One day it will be worth it and I will find the right balance. It's a learning process, it’s a work in progress and I'm on my way. And what about you?
