Journey to becoming a Nike Athlete...In My Head

Happy New Year people! 

Welcome me back to the blogging world!  It's been a long time since I've posted anything.  But with that said I'm glad to be back.  

Today marks the official day of my journey to become a Nike Athlete.  To be honest I don't know how one becomes one.  However, I follow quite a few people that are really into fitness and health, each representing Nike in some way, and so I declared that I'd work to become a Nike Athlete LOL.  So far, I've created my own ideas about the job qualifications. 

1) Do what you must to be healthy!
2) Work on fitness.
3) Wear Nike. LOL

My gym/workout shoes have always been Nike so I felt somewhat qualified in trying for this position.  LOL.  No, all jokes aside, I've been influenced by people such as, mankofit, ashleyjoi, msporsche911, laisdeleon,  and msjeanettejenkins, and many others on Instagram (follow me: carpe_diem_vb).  Also, I see what great shape other Nike representatives are in, and so I've classified all of them under this category, and now I'm working on my own journey.

I just hope that I don't lose focus and give up.  This is a lifelong commitment of course, but me and exercise, well lets just say that we have an on again, off again relationship LOL. 

I'm also doing a 30 day ab challenge with a group called Run This Town.  We are starting off with a minimal workouts and by the end of the challenge we will have worked our way up to a nice amount of reps.  Additionally, I am back to breaking more water.  Over the past year this hasn't been much of a problem for me, but when I forget my water bottles I also forget to drink the recommended amount of water for the day.  

Cheer me on and I attempt to balance my new hobby with my regular life/being a med student.  You know what they say though, you make time for what you want.
