Make It A Habit // Health & Fitness

Hello, happy Wednesday! I’m jumping on the blog today with a post about fitness, injuries, my relationship with exercise and my goals moving forward.

I never was an athlete growing up. I absolutely dreaded P.E., especially after dislocating my kneecap in 6th grade and then spending three weeks in a straight leg cast to prevent it from happening again.

And I’m at a point in my life where I need to be more accountable for my actions and responsible for the ramifications that result. Boy, that sounds SO serious and scary and like I’m in a downward spiral. Eek! But I’m not, and not doing anything bad. Promise! Just need to start making more of the right choices to nurture my mind, body and spirt. So I guess that does make it serious, at least to me.
