As a competitive athlete growing up, fitness has always been integrated into my life. Whether it was on the ice or on the tennis court, I was always doing some sort of physical activity for a few hours a day, which I miss…a lot. Since those years have passed and now I’m starting this “adulthood” life as a recent college graduate, I’ve had to learn how to be self-disciplined on my own with making time for my workouts and figuring out which types made me enjoy the fitness journey the most. I’ve shared a few of my personal tips on how I did it and which workouts I found best suitable for me. Continue reading “How to Find The Most Suitable Fitness Routine (and LOVE it)”
Up until the end of 2017, I blamed others for what happened to me. If I was late, it was because there was too much traffic, not because I didn’t leave early enough to account for that traffic.

It’s been quite some time since I have written a post, but don’t worry I am still alive and breathing. In fact, I have been exploring and going out of my comfort zone in a lot of aspects of my life. Continue reading “Comfort Zones”
Often times, I always hear the phrase, “Everything happens for a reason.” To be brutally honest, I used to completely trust this statement and had a lot of belief in it. However, recently, I started to believe otherwise. Don’t get me wrong, I still believe in this phrase to an extent.
