    As a teen I was super into fitness and taking care of my body. I was physically in shape and mentally.

    Over the years life happened and I became wrapped up in the trials and tribulations of growing up.

    I finally broke the cycle of excuses and depression to actually start caring for myself again.

    I forgot how freaking good it feels to exercise the body. For me it’s very therapeutic. I was just excited and thought I would share

    Exercise is a great way to fight back against depression. When we exercise it releases a number of good endorphins and as we see the results of our efforts in the mirror, the boost to our self confidence is amazing. It's difficult to motivate ourselves in the beginning, but if we get into a routine and stick at it the results can follow in very little time at all.
