It’s ok to live a life that others don’t understand.
“Do you workout everyday?” “Did you make it to the gym today?” “What are these challenge groups?” “Are you taking another yoga class tonight?”
These are typical questions I hear on a weekly and sometimes daily basis. I’ve been involved in sports since I was five years old. Thirteen years of gymnastics and seven years of diving. YES. Being focused on my health and fitness has kind of been drilled into me. It has become a stress reliever. Being an athlete defined me. It helped me get through the stressors of graduate school. It has helped me get through days when I’m homesick and missing my family and friends back in the United States. It has helped balance my days.
Being a part of a team was such big part of my life and I thought that was going to be over the day I graduated from Pitt. I’m so glad to still be a part of a team again with others who share the same goal of improving their health, fitness, and personal development!
I may not be diving into a pool anymore, but still diving into my goals with some motivated ladies!
Focusing on my health and fitness journey has kept me sane, but the fact that I’m not doing it alone keeps me connected and held accountable even from thousands of miles away!
My next challenge group, Run Run Rudolph, starts November 27th! I know this next month is going to be crazy! The holidays are coming up and I know I’m also going to need some extra accountability! Who’s in?!
And yes, besides focusing on helping others with their health, fitness and personal development goals, I’m a huge YOGI!
I do yoga to burn off the crazy!
