For my entire life, I have always been super healthy and in shape. From the ages of 3-16 years old I was a full time gymnast training to be in the Olympics. I know it sounds super far-fetched, but its 100% true. I was competing nationally and the two people who picked the Olympic team wanted me to train at their gym. I was the plan until I broke five bones in my foot and had to take some time off. While I was injured I noticed something. I noticed that there was a life outside of the gym. I had never noticed it because I was so involved and just did not know anything else. This led to me wanting to quit gymnastics. It sounds dumb now because I could have gone to the Olympics, why would I quit because I saw a life outside of the gym? Who knows, but it happened. I enter into high school and I felt kind of lost without gymnastics, so i tried out for the team and made it. Gymnastics was for only one season and with my body being so used to going going going, I needed to find something else to do with my time while it was not gymnastics season. Cheer and lacrosse were the answer. So basically I did cheering for the first half of the year, then gymnastics, then lacrosse in the spring. Every year of high school was the same. Cheer in the beginning, gymnastics in the fall, and lacrosse in the spring. I loved it all so much. I was so fit. I even did a weight lifting class my senior year. This leads to the point of the blog. I am currently in college and I am not doing a single sport. In the beginning of the year it kind of felt like my body was shutting down. I was super sad all the time and had no motivation to get up in the mornings because I was not doing what I love. I eventually knew that I would never do gymnastics again unless I became a coach, which I have thought about many of times. I knew I was never going to do lacrosse again because the VCU team are beasts and I was good at lacrosse, but not good enough to play for college. And lastly, I could cheer at VCU, I would totally make the team, but next year I will be buying a house and while I am not in class, I am going to be working so I can pay rent. It all kind of sucks, but I have found a way around it. Its college, obviously we all put on some weight. We cannot avoid it. So I have been eating super healthy on a daily basis, and going to the gym every day. My workout consists of running two miles, leg workout, ab workout, and butt workout, to keep myself in shape. I never thought working out would be fun but considering its the closest thing I have to a sport, I will gladly workout. I run because of lacrosse, when I do my workouts I do it infused with all my old cheer and gymnastics workouts. I am glad to finally be back in shape and look forward to a healthy future!
