If you want the back story-
I always engaged in exercise because I enjoyed it; I liked the challenge of trying something new and aiming to master it myself. I loved & craved that feeling of being so free while I was running on the beach in San Diego or doing a bodyweight circuit on the rooftop of my apartment in college, having the sun beat down on me as I moved my body in these incredible ways, with such technique and purpose. Exercise was like a drug for me; a healthy escape from the chaos of reality & the entering of this euphoric state of being where I could let go of the to-do list & focus on one task at hand- moving my body in a way that feels beyond rewarding.
Everything sounds incredible right? Then life starts to change, responsibilities only grow with age & I found myself really needing my exercise routine in my life because of how it made me feel. How it took me away from the mayhem of work stressors, wedding planning to dos, and the entire process of digging up every document on my life’s existence when buying my first home. My personal health & wellness has always been an area of my life I have prioritized and for different reasons along the way. When I was young and in college, I had a physique to maintain, obviously, but I also got so much mental and physical stress released out just moving my body.
If you're about 1/2 invested
When I entered the ‘real world’ and started working for my first corporate job, the reasons started to shift, but one thing held the same. When I was in college, I wasn’t thinking about the future of my health and wellness- I was thinking about getting a job. Once I go to that point and entered my mid-20s, I started to realize that people still aren’t thinking about where they want to be in the next 10 years with their body. People are often thinking of their health and wellness in short term 1-2 year (maybe even less) time frames. It’s not until something tragic or an exciting life event comes up where we think, ‘damn, I better get my ass in shape if I want to….’ you fill in the blank.
For me, as I got into my mid 20s I realized that I was no longer exercising and eating healthy because I wanted to maintain good physique & relieve stress. These are still incredible outcomes of a healthy lifestyle, but I wanted to maintain how I felt now, when I am in my 30s, 40s, 50s, & beyond. I knew, when the time came, I wanted to feel strong and sexy on my wedding day, be able to pick up my 30+ lb child without injuring myself, to travel and backpack around the world with my best friend without feeling like I need to ‘call it’ because ‘I’m totally out of shape’. Nah, this wasn’t going to be the life I made for myself, nor was it the life I wanted any of my fellow sedentary lifestyle co-workers, friends, and loved ones to have either.
