Funny Story: When I was just 16, shortly after getting my drivers license, my girlfriends and I drove to near by Niagara Falls one Friday Night to see a psychic. Kind of random, but it was just girlie fun, so why not?
She told me that fitness was going to be a big part of my life, specifically running - at that point and time I was not exactly a health nut and I pretty much avoided running like the plague. So I figured she was making assumptions based on my cozy sweatpants. She also told me that I would struggle medically, specifically something heart-related. This was pre-diagnosis so I just shrugged it off and rolled with it. And she said, that while I would live a long happy life, my twenties would be tumultuous and I would struggle on and off with illness and medical setbacks. We left that night laughing and comparing our future predictions.
But over the past few years I have often thought back to that reading. You gotta admit she has been eerily on point so far?! So with that in mind, I am not exactly sad that it is my Birthday, and heading into my final year as a twenty-something.
28 was not exactly a stellar year. So even though I fear I may need Botox at any moment (kidding... kind of...) I am actually looking forward to 29 and the promise of a new year. 2013 broke me, but 2014 is all about rebuilding. With my Health and Heart Health at the forefront. So I want to celebrate this new year by sharing one of my favourite fitness gadgets with one of you.
