Hello! Welcome to my blog, something I have wanted to start for years. Finally, thanks to COVID and some other forms of procrastination, here I am! Post # 1.
Well, the whole point of this post isn't to tell you my lifelong story, that's for another time. Today, I just wanted to share my WHY. Why a blog?
I really enjoy writing, and Instagram only lets me type out so much in my posts. But even so, that has been my outlet for quite some time now. With this blog, I want to get into more detail, and release more information for people to read for free, instead of them scrolling endlessly through my long winded statements. If you click here, I think you're more likely to read it all, right? Maybe...
Anyways, expect all sorts of things! Fitness, mental and physical health, workouts, food, recipes, nutrition, self reflection, etc. That's the goal anyways. Also, the goal is to make 2 blog posts a month. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, here's a little about me:
I am 25 years old. Self employed for a little over 2 years, with a total of 3.5 years working directly in the fitness industry and 9 years and counting of being completely absorbed in my own health and fitness journey (Another time, I promise).
I love CrossFit but honestly I just love pushing my limits in all things fitness. I love learning and growing, and spending time with the people I love. The sun is my favorite thing ever, and I absolutely love the outdoors. I love fire and water, chicken thighs, dark dark chocolate, and all things vegetable. I also enjoy drawing, singing in the car or shower, and dancing in my apartment when no one is around. I recently got out of a long term relationship because I decided I needed some time to be alone and grow into the person that I want to be. This is uncharted territory for me because my entire adult life has involved me relying on another human being, and even though I'm often uncomfortable, I am growing. I needed to learn to be alone and stand on my own two feet. I have a crazy past that I used to run from but now I'm learning that it's okay to hurt, and I am healing. I have copious amounts of energy and if I am not active I fall apart because I can't focus on anything. The best way to describe me is "Organized Chaos" because on the outside I seem put together, structured, organized, routine oriented, but on the inside I can be a complete mess and I have a hard time keeping my life together. Once you get to know me, you quickly realize that I am just as normal as everyone else. I am no hero, I just try to stay positive and focus on helping other people.
Speaking of which, that is my favorite thing to do. Help people, through physical activity. Exercise changed my life and I know that it can do the same for so many other people too. My goal in life is to just get people moving, lifting weights, going for walks, eating healthy, and taking care of their mental health. I want to help improve lives. I want to contribute. I love being positive, it is a game changer. But some days I struggle, just like everyone else. Looking at this picture below makes me smile because I remember feeling great on this day, and there is nothing quite like feeling great.
There is my ramble # 1 , Stay tuned for my next one :) Thanks for reading!
