‘I plan my days around my workout schedule, not plan my workouts around my days,’ she says. ‘Some may say I overdo it, but it’s just because I am so passionate about it. … Fitness is my priority.’ “
Here’s the story I wrote about healthy exercise habits and what can happen if you go overboard. Not my favorite article I’ve ever written, but there are many different perspectives on the issue: from an awesome young exercise enthusiast, from a medical/clinical view, from a hypnotherapist who works with exercise addicted clients and from a local personal trainer. Featuring some quotes from Fit Freak 4 Life, one of my favorite exercise Tumblrs.

She quips: ”There are so many things you can’t control in this world, but you CAN control the way your body looks. If you make fitness a passion you will never stop. It becomes a part of life, and fitness is my life.”
