Healthy NOT Skinny (Day 14)

Healthy not Skinny

Scroll to the top of this page….see my tag line??

“Because Being Healthy Doesn’t Mean Being Thin.”

That is true.  There are plenty of thin people who aren’t healthy and plenty of healthy people who aren’t thin.

What’s more true is that if you make your choices bases upon the idea goal that you want to be healthier, happier, and more productive, then I believe you will surpass that goal  easily.

Getting “skinny” is, often, a result of your healthy living but it shouldn’t be your main goal.  There are so many other wonderful, beautiful outcomes of making healthy choices – better health (obviously), stronger muscles, more endurance, better heart health, increased circulation, lower cholesterol, etc. etc. etc.  The list goes on.

Don’t let the idea of thinness be your main priority – it’s a perfect way to set yourself up for failure.  Love yourself.  Embracing the body you have does not mean you have to stop continuing to better it – but be proud of who you are.  Loving yourself will give you the confidence to keep going (or get started!).

Love YOUR Body - not someone else's

I would love this caption more if we could get rid of “leaner” – so let’s just scratch that out, k?

Get Ecxited! (Day 10)

Excited about Health

I often hear people complain about healthy eating and fitness.

I hear that eating healthy is expensive and exercising is time-consuming – yadda, yadda, yadda.

But I get excited about getting healthy.  For obvious reasons, getting healthy.  But also because it gives me the opportunity to try so many new things – new recipes, new exercises, new fitness classes, etc.

It’s also an opportunity to be social (and be social with people outside of my regular social circle).

Go into your new healthy lifestyle with the outlook that it’s an adventure.  Be positive about it and have fun with it and you’ll love the outcome.

Beauty

Your true beauty comes from within, it is not based on the color of your eyes or how glossy your hair is or how big your biceps are.  Your beauty comes from your soul; from your willingness to treat everyone as an equal, to be a friend to all, to love from the depths of your heart, and mostly, to respect and embrace yourself as you are.  Once you show yourself the love (by exercising your body and feeding and watering it properly, by exercising and enlightening your mind with knowledge, by loving and sharing your soul), everything else in life can become beautiful too.

Happy Friday!
