I have an overall goal every year to be generally healthier, but I’ve found I always do better at actually accomplishing my goals when they’re very specific rather than so broad and vague. “Be healthy” is an awesome buzzword and yes, three cheers for aspiring for it. But what does it actually mean and look like for my life?
Fitness has always been a large part of my life. It wasn’t necessarily a passion at first, but a necessity. I played a different sport every season for most of my childhood and stuck with volleyball through my college years. I had always dreamed of having thin, gangly limbs and a slender frame but God had other plans for this frame of mine. Thanks to my dad, I am built more like She-Hulk than the damsel in distress. My body craves muscle, and without it things tend to go south.
