Work In Progress

Root & Rose is going in a new direction. It took me a while to get to this point because I didn’t want to accept that I would have to start over. While I was proud of the content I was creating before, I felt as though my blog was in all sorts of places and I lost the whole point of why I started. To put it simply, I wasn’t enjoying it anymore and instead, I felt like it was a chore. And thus the reason why I stopped blogging anything for a good year.

As a person, I’ve changed since I’ve started this blog and I’ve learned a whole lot more of what I enjoy and want out of life. I know I still love creating content and seeing the end product after all the hard work. So not giving up on Root & Rose, I’m going to start again with a new goal in mind.



Fitness has always been an outlet for me to work away the frustrations and stresses in my life, and that’s how this all really began. I was in a point of my life where I poured all my determination into working out….but for all the wrong reasons. However, what started out as an outlet, turned into my new found passion. Like an idiot, in the beginning I believed that working out hard and sweating a ton would yield in results…and yet I wasn’t making any progress. So that’s when I learned that I should be making healthier lifestyle decisions, and not just focusing on exercise.


Consider this a declaration. This blog is where I want to document my proud moments, my progress and what inspires me everyday to go out and conquer. When you stop learning, you stop growing, so everything is always changing. I have accepted I will always be a work-in-progress, and that’s the challenge in life. Whether it’s playing a new song guitar, trying out different work outs, or creating new recipes, I’m going to be learning something new and sharing it here on Root & Rose (Oh! and on my Insta-G @heychrisslee).


Cheers to a fresh start!
