…Or your worth, or anything else about you that truly matters. You can be overweight and very fit. You can be skinny and also in good health.
Listen to your body. Make smart decisions. Choose health. Choose to move and to nourish your body with foods rich in the things it needs to carry you through your day, week, year, life. This ain’t rocket science people, but it’s also not solely determined by some unit of measurement that only tells you the mathematical relationship between your body and gravity. That’s it. Not what a kind and helpful person you are, not what a great motivator you can be, and not how much you love everyday.

I needed some motivation today.
The hardest part of starting and sticking with it in the first few days and weeks are thinking “I can’t”, “I’m not strong enough”, or “It’s too hard”.

The remnants of old grist mills that used thrive here still line the river, and before that it is said that many various tribes of Native Americans used to wander these banks and live along the Eno. It’s got very interesting topography, with huge boulders along the trail; some covered in a soft carpet of green moss, others with jagged cuts and sharp angles. Some are as large as a car and others are smaller, piled up in the river itself creating chutes and crevices for the fish and mollusks. This could be really fun to kayak… (note to self, get kayaks SOON!).

Alrighty then. My first blog. In case you don’t get the headline, it’s a reference to that movie where the idiot gets the tattoo “No Regrets” but it’s spelled wrong. I feel like it really embodies where I’m at right now. Always on the brink, ready to take some kind of leap of faith to change my direction and finally find contentment in everyday life.
