I wasn’t always kind to my body.
There was a time in my life when food and exercise were shoulders to lean on. Coping mechanisms, if you will. I felt out of touch with my entire being. My mind-body connection had vanished. I quietly yearned for freedom, though — freedom from the rigid walls and rules I’d instinctively built.
Eat clean was my mantra.
Exercise intensely was my manifesto.
Give everything my all — those were the words I lived by.
