We need to let go of the negativity when it comes to our health and our bodies. We need to learn to love ourselves and believe that our bodies are worth the price it takes to be healthy. Don't let the price of real foods or unprocessed foods determine the nutrition you fuel your body with. Don't let the price of a gym membership, or workout program keep you from getting a healthy body. The more we invest in our own health, the more our body and health gives back to us.
When we fuel our bodies with crap, our bodies don't work at it's best potential than as if we fuel it with food straight from Mother Earth. Fill your body with artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, chemicals, preservatives, etc., our bodies do not know what to do with it all. Therefore, it stores it as fat as it can not process it properly.
Fuel our bodies with fresh veggies, fresh fruit, whole grains, lean protein and it will utilize every bit of the nutrients provided to help our bodies run efficiently. We will sleep better, have more energy, feel less pain, swelling, inflammation, and have less bloat. We will have less trips to the doctor. We lessen our chances at diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, and oh so many other ailments created by or brought on by the processed foods and the chemicals we consume.
Move each and every day. Whether you go to the gym or workout at home in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Get your heart rate up to create a strong heart, burn the fat, strengthen your core and body. As we age, we really need to focus more on our health. We don't have to let nature take over and lesson our bone density, cause weight gain, etc. We have to work to maintain what our bodies tend to do on it's own when we were younger. Yes, it will talk some time, dedication, and effort, however, in the long run when you are the grandparent out chasing your grandkids in the yard, living an active life while others your age are getting around slowly and taking life easy, you will be enjoying life!
