I never really realized how much I let myself go in college…I wasn’t taking care of my body like I used too. I didn’t fully understand how I had a psychological issue with the way I viewed “being healthy”. To be honest I didn’t know that there was a psychological side to nurturing your body. I just saw “organic” and thought it wasn’t bad for me. I was trying to run to lose weight, I was trying to eat “healthy”, and I was absolutely failing. Many times I just gave up and moved on until my next motivated season of life, only to start the cycle all over again.
I think we all have a “being healthy” cycle…and it SUCKS.
So I’m creating this blog to be a place where we can learn how to truly nurture our bodies. We can forget the idea of dieting, forget how to “be healthy”, and choose to live a LIFELONG healthy lifestyle.
The concept of being healthy can seem like a temporary fix. Shifting the focus to changing our lifestyle as a whole can dramatically impact the outcomes our efforts produce.
I’m not saying being on a diet, joining a gym, or anything is bad…I’m just saying that it usually ends up being temporary. In fact, I’m 1/3 of the way through whole 30 as I write this!
This first blog is a challenge…a challenge for us all to change our mindsets on what this journey might look like if we just lived to take care of our bodies.
What are ways you’re tried “being healthy”?
What made you walk away from those things?
What exactly does “being healthy mean to you?
