Although not so athletic, I have really grown an appreciation for health and fitness. I especially enjoy it when it can be incorporated into an outdoor activity ranging from something simple, such as walking/hiking to something more adventurous, such as zip-lining. I absolutely love being outdoors but am perfectly okay with sitting back and relaxing at home, watching tv/movies or reading. On the weekends, I co-lead the Spanish-speaking Young Adults Group at my church, where we have bi-weekly discussions and or acts of service (e.g., volunteering with an organization).
