Wellness Journey

Movement is medicine

I know. That advice is as annoying as it is accurate. But it’s true. Sure, I lost weight with the ketogenic diet. I dropped 60 pounds in 6 months. I felt great. But I didn’t start finding myself again and cherishing self care until I started moving. With everything else in my life, I dove head first.

I started walking a mile everyday at a local park. Then it became 2. Within a matter weeks, I joined my first virtual challenge – One Month of (Daily) 5k’s. I fell straight into remembering my love of competitions. That was in the summer of 2018. I haven’t stopped moving since.

My workouts have changed. I’ve added cardio boxing, a stationary bike, free workouts I find on YouTube, whatever I feel like in the moment. But, I still make time for my daily walks. It could be 5 minutes or 50 minutes – that doesn’t matter. Movement is movement.

From hiding to front and center.

I can’t wait to see where I am in my fitness journey with each passing year – because I’m not stopping.
