"Commitment isn't about being perfect, always following through, or never going astray. Commitment means that when you (inevitably) stumble or get off track, you pick yourself up, find your bearings, and carry on in the most meaningful direction possible." -- Russ Harris
I don't remember where I came across that quote, frankly -- nor do I even know who Russ Harris is. Still, I think it pretty well sums up my life's quest for health. I've never been a healthy girl, not even when I was thin. But I still can be healthy -- thick or thin. I just have to continue being committed to myself. That's what I'm doing here on Spark. I am reaffirming and building that commitment.
To enjoy life to the fullest as a healthier, fitter, wiser me.
1. Stress less, live more.
2. Treat my body with the respect and love I deserve -- even if I struggle to believe I deserve those things.
3. Move, move, move!
4. Drink enough water I'll float in the bathtub.
5. Find a healthy diet I can adhere to easily.
I am a biologist and PhD student. I love all science & research, reading classic literature, photography, writing short stories and poems, hiking, gardening, crocheting and jewelry making, and last, but not least, spending time with my puppy, kitten, and significant other.
