Got a good laugh out of that first picture of me from almost exactly 5 years ago when I really started to get into exercise. As I enter my last month working as a personal trainer to begin PT school, I've reflected a lot on how much I've grown since that first picture. As much as my physique has changed, my mind has changed tenfold that. I'm certain I would be in a bad situation now if I had not found myself in health and wellness.
At first working out was just for aesthetics. Now exercise is much more of a meditative practice for me. After personal training for 3 years, I have an entirely different approach and appreciation of exercise and movement. When we are young we take simple things like walking up stairs or getting off the ground for granted. Those abilities are temporary if we don't take care of how our bodies move and what we fuel them with.
If the body isn't healthy the mind won't be either. Take some time each day to leave your mind, enter your body, and move.
