I have always correlated health with a certain image of an ideal weight and body. I considered healthy people as skinny, and unhealthy people as fat. How ignorant of me! “Healthy” is far, far, far from being a size 2 for ladies and a Brad Pitt look-alike for guys. I was shocked to learn that there were very healthy men and women that didn’t have a body or weight of what I thought was ideal.
I will say it now: I don’t choose to eat healthy only for my weight and waistline. I eat healthy for my future. I exercise for the one organ ♥ that each one of us relies on from the time we are concieved to the time we are buried. I eat healthy, exercise, and enjoy desserts for my overall well-being and HEALTH.
As I haven’t said the word enough: Being healthy and taking care of my body is very important to me. Up until recently, I treated my body with ignorance. I was never concerned for my future, only concerned with my pant size.
Now that I have been educated and have a deep passion for Nutrition, Health, and fitness I realize a balanced diet (with chocolate included) and physical activity is essential for a long, happy, and healthy life.
