You guys ever since I became a mama I have realized just how true the statement “Health is Wealth” is and it starts with making one simple change!! Your body is a temple given to you by God and you must take care of it, not only for yourselves but for your family and for others. You only get one body in this life so why wouldn’t you take care of it and treat it with the utmost respect.
God designed the human body with his own hands, with the intention that fueled with the right things it could heal and repair itself. I am a HUGE believer in the power of fruits and vegetables and the impact they can make on your body both internally and externally. Your body knows exactly what to do with them… if you feed your body what it needs it will function like a well oiled machine!
I have always considered myself a some-what healthy person and since becoming a mother have focused on it more and more. But like everyone and everything else there is ALWAYS room for improvement.
I am lucky to have been born with relatively good genes; ones where you don’t have to try hard to lose weight, you stay pretty healthy etc. But let me tell ya sister not all quote-on-quote “Skinny People” are healthy. It goes to the old adage “Don’t judge a book by its cover”.
Sure so-and-so fits in a size 2 but maybe they are starving themselves? Or not feeding themselves the proper nutrition? Or maybe they are just genetically “lucky”? Who knows? We need to stop comparing ourselves to others and start fixing ourselves from the inside out!
The above photo seriously hits home. We have a lifestyle choice to make. So many don’t think of being unhealthy as a “lifestyle choice” it’s just something they grew up when they were kids, they have no other choices, it’s what they know, etc. But NEWS FLASH living unhealthy is a choice, a choice that you CAN change! It will by no means be easy but it IS an option! Stop making excuses and start making changes. You have to make the choice to either live a lifestyle of health or an unhealthy lifestyle. THE CHOICE IS YOURS…and yours alone. If you’re with me HEALTH is the way to go.
You aren’t going to become healthy overnight and in order to succeed you are going to have to take baby steps. One baby step will lead to another and then all of a sudden you will be looking back at your old lifestyle wondering who that person was and so thankful that it’s not you anymore.
It starts with One Simple Change- it can be something as simple as drinking more water, drinking less soda, being intentional on moving for 30 minutes a day, choosing a healthier snack, eating breakfast…. Once that change is successful add another! You will be surprised at the momentum it creates!
A few things I have personally done is made a commitment to pack my lunch every day, move, take Juice Plus+ and drink a Juice Plus Complete shake every day. This has seriously done wonders to my cravings, energy and body!
Too often people try to make weight loss and healthy lifestyles complicated. Counting points, restricting what you eat, exercising for hours upon hours… All you have to do is fuel your body with the right nutrition and get moving. Take the dogs for a walk, run around with the kids, watch less t.v., walk around the office-to name a few.
We all need better nutrition, our bodies thrive on fruits and vegetables- they actually help our bodies rebuild themselves! Prevention is our best medicine!
I don’t know about you but my kids learn by example-if I don’t take care of myself yet tell my kids to we aren’t going to get very far. They are going to encounter the same problems we have if not worse with the way the food and healthcare industry is going! Show your kids the importance of exercise, nutrition and health through your personal lifestyle!
We’ve got this! It takes a village. I want to be a part of your village!
