Summer Slimdown is in FULL EFFECT!

Little me circa 1998

I've been an athlete for almost my entire life. From the age of 5 until the age of 18, I was what you would call a jock. I've done Karate, Swimming, Gymnastics, Tennis, Softball, Cheerleading, Track/Field and even Crew. There's just something I love about playing a sport; the competition, the adrenaline, and of course, the exercise--the heart pumping, muscle aching cruel exercise. Being an athlete teaches you multiples things: discipline, persistence, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Going away to college and no longer having an athletic outlet forced my healthy living to plummet. Exercise was no longer at the core of my being, but working/interning was my new pride and joy. I don't even know how much weight I gained because I am that scared to look at the scale. All I know is, these stretch marks caused by unhealthy extra baggage have got to go.

I'm going to be switching up the way I eat and reintroduce a little thing called exercise into my life. Blogging about it will probably keep me on track. If you want to join my Summer Slimdown, let me know. We can keep each other motivated!
