A Healthy Lifestyle

I believe in living a healthy lifestyle. 

What is a healthy lifestyle? 

To me, it's nourishing your body with healthy foods most of the time, not crash dieting just to reach a certain number on the scale. 

It's training hard and lifting heavy because it makes you a stronger person physically and mentally, not as punishment for eating something "bad". 

It's enjoying life to the fullest by allowing yourself your favorite not so healthy foods every now and then, not letting food control your life. 

It's eating foods you really enjoy, not choking down food you hate just to get a 6 pack . 

It's improving your inner self, loving God and others to the fullest, not just constantly obsessing about your outward appearance.

It's knowing that you are not defined by a number on a scale or a body fat percentage or how much muscle you have. 

It's loving yourself the way you are, while at the same time, striving to be the best and healthiest version of yourself that you can possibly be.

  3. Great post. I like how you described what a healthy lifestyle is. I like that you said that we can still enjoy not so healthy foods because let's be honest there are a lot of temptation out there that are just impossible to resist, and coming from someone like you that has such an amazing body I'm really believing it. For me working out is not something that I enjoy but I don't look at it as a punishment, I take it as hard work that will pay off big time. Health is something that I've always invested on and I hope that everyone would to.

    1. Thank you! Yes, health is so important! It takes time for exercise and eating healthy to be something that you enjoy because you know it's good for you vs. just trying to reach a number on the scale. Enjoying life and incorporating treats into your diet without getting off track is important also and something that comes with time. Thanks for commenting! :)
