I can’t tell you how many times I felt like giving up in this fitness journey. I wasn’t always an athlete. In fact, I used to tell people I hated sports and was not interested at all in being active. I used to defeat myself before I even started by telling myself that my chronic pain kept me from doing any fitness activities. While it may be true that I have challenges, what is also true is, I am capable, able and strong. And starting over doesn’t mean I failed. It means I desire to go on.
