Move Your Body

I have a love/hate relationship with working out. I would always find something else to do instead exercising. Work out was not in my vocabulary. But it wasn't until recently that I made working out a priority. If I am going to get back into shape, the time is now. I finally have time to take care of myself and my body.

There are so many ways to exercise. Right now, I'm going to the gym every other morning with my friend, Allison. She is my workout buddy! If it wasn't for her, I don't know if I'd be exercising as much as I am now. She motivates me and keeps me accountable.  Whether it's singing old 90's music or talking about our plans for the weekend together, having a work out buddy makes it fun.

Aside from going to the gym, occasionally I go jogging by myself. I try to run but it's actually like running and walking, running and walking. I am not a runner. The longest distance I used to run was from the end of the gymnastics runway to the vault - about 40 feet (12 meters). That's not very long haha. Even though I don't like to run, I've found other ways to make running more enjoyable: running with music, running with a furry friend or running to a pretty destination.

Whether it's registering for a race buying a new pair of tennis shoes or making a new playlist, I hope you'll find something that motivates you to exercise. In the words of Beyoncé, "everybody just move your body. let's move!"
