Never lose hope ! ❤️ for LIFE!



This blog is a collection of my thoughts.

I have 4 NASM CPT certifications in corrective exercises, senior fitness, Parkinson’s, and general. Philosophy major ( Christopher Newport University)and Medical AÀ.

Addiction,eating disorders, mental and physical disabilities, amongst others are my passions.

Sober. Cerebellar stroke survivor. Suicide survivor. Recovered from anorexia, bulimia, and self mutilation. I also have Ataxia.

I focus on mental, physical and social aspects; I believe life is multi-faceted. Think of these objects as you do your body; if a muscle is missing you will either fall or another muscle will have to work extra hard to compensate. Either way, something is obviously lacking; balance is important in LIFE. And I have found a well balanced life serves me well 🙂

Currently a Master 1 powerlifter and attempting to compete in the Paralympics
