A Second Try For A Healthy Life

I have my own share of flaws when it comes to taking care of my body. I must admit it takes A LOT OF DISCIPLINE to keep fit. Months ago I ceased joggging and eating well balanced meals. I gave in to junk foods over again and eating "like there is no tomorrow"...
Last week I officially forgave myself and gave this mind and body another chance to GO and GLOW!

For starters I began ditching too salty and starchy snacks for FRUITS and bought assorted fiber and vitamin rich goodies!

My next plan is resuming my early morning brisk walks....and gardening! Fruit bearing trees and vegetables to grow are on my list.

Care enough about the ones you love like me? Then be inspired to go HEALTHY too! There are a thousand and one reasons we can use to justify our "unhealthy" eating habits like "we're just being ourselves," "people will love us no matter what," etc....yet at the end of the day, the truth is we are giving away years of our existence for just another bite of fats or starch....

"It is not about looking GREAT that should motivate us, it is about TAKING CARE OF THE TEMPLE OF GOD IN US, OUR BODIES and living long and healthy enough for the ones we love, having the energy to share our gifts and helping others...we can't do that when we are ill...so the time to start is now!!!

Come take a pick from my tray of fruits and join me in my journey towards a long, healthy life!

  3. Wow! I admire people who do their best to get physically fit. I'm so lazy to exercise even jogging. The only thing I've done about my health is to eat healthy foods like fruits and veggies.

  9. I spotted fruits on that tray that I miss. I am with you on this goal. I'm glad that for months now, I always win over the urge to eat unhealthy snacks. I just find it hard to walk here daily as the weather is so unpredictable.

  10. Eating a balance diet is what we all need in order to live healthier and longer life, we should start it the younger we are. that way we can give our body some good outcome when we get older later on in life.

  11. I am with you Ate! :)

    It's super hard to give up junk foods but for a healthy lifestyle, I'm starting to dump them. I'm more into veggies na than fruits kasi it's kinda expensive. Hehehe!

    And I hope I could be with you to do some brisk walking every morning. Nakakatamad kasi pag mag-isa. >.<
