One of my favorite childhood memories was when my siblings and I would hop on our bikes and accompany my dad on his run. Exercise has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up playing sports and always remember my parents being active. To me, exercise was a part of life.
When I got to college, I no longer had sports as part of my daily routine. Like many college freshman, my eating habits and exercise behaviors changed, and though I was still working out, I steadily put on 15, 20, then 25 pounds.
