Being comfortable in my own skin doesn’t come naturally to me. My path to where I am now (continuously evolving) has been through twists and turns, peaks and valleys, sun and snow. You get the picture.
But, it’s the reason why I entered the Health Industry in my teens. And, it’s the reason I’m still here now.
So yes, I’ve been through some unhealthy times where I didn’t work out, ate too much and gained weight. I can tell you, these were not my happiest of mental places, or my best years. I could choose to blame it on some injuries. Or to scapegoat my lack of time, or situations outside my control.
The truth is and will always be, it is my decision. My decision on how to act or react from moment to moment, my choice. At that time I didn’t know, or understand this. I think I’m finally starting to. Thanks to my husband, family and friends for the support through the years.
I believe it’s all part of my purpose. Part of my reason for being here. To go through challenging times and make it out on the other side to share with you. Help one another, that’s what life is about right? Sharing experiences. I’m starting to feel more comfortable with that.
Anyways, take home lesson of all that.
Health is a choice. It’s what you choose to prioritize everyday to help you get where you want to go.
Even if you are injured, and can’t workout the way you want to. You can still focus on helping your body to heal.
Currently, I have not been making health a priority as much as I usually do. It’s been super busy, which is good. However, my workouts have been a little less intense, a diet a little less clean, overall a little less balance. It’s time for a little Health Spring Cleaning.
This week choose to prioritize the people, places and things that will help you to be your healthiest, physically and mentally. It’s not always the easiest, but it is definitely the most rewarding.
