Exercise used to be something that just happened for me. A side-effect of joining various sports teams and growing more competitive at each level. I didn’t have to think about going to the gym, I was just part of the team.
And as a team, we practiced. We pushed each other. We worked our butts off to get better.
It just so happens a strong and healthy body was part of the package.
Then college happened. And so did parties. And pizza. And 15+ pounds.
All of a sudden exercise wasn’t accidentally on the schedule anymore, and I was paying for it.
