The truth about health and fitness is that we either want it or we don’t. Let’s face it, we can all come up with reasons not to exercise today or pack our coolers with healthy food to have on hand. All the reasons in the world are excuses that will eventually catch up to us in the form of illness or injury. That also is the truth. What we need to understand is that our lifestyle is our medicine, and that includes what we eat and how we move and rest our bodies. We can’t continue to walk around in a state of un-health and believe that this is an acceptable existence. Looking and feeling our best is what we all want, dream about, and talk about, but the action to make it happen never seems to occur. Look at what is flooding our magazines, commercials, and television shows when it comes to getting healthy. We need to be living the reality shows of achieving our best body not sitting in front of the tube with our chips watching other people taking action to get healthy.
Reasons will not change how we look or feel and in fact will only make us feel and look worse if continued as a lifestyle. Our first step to change this reality of reasons, is to own that we are doing that. If you are coming up with reasons to stop by the fast food or restaurant, skip out on the workout, and party hardy until the break of dawn, it is time to stand in your own truth and ask why. Looking at the truth can sometimes piss us off, cause us to throw our hands up with a profound “f” word salute, and that is normal. It will be in that frustrated moment of anger or other emotion that will open the mind to what in the hell am I doing with my life and body. It will be that slap in the face that will cause us to get serious about a healthy lifestyle becoming our medicine.
The only person responsible for replacing reasons with action is you and me. It is time to rearrange the priorities in our lives because no person is too busy to take care of their health. Everyone can have their fittest body at any age and I will take on any backlash for making this statement. A healthy fit body is obtainable and realistic for all of us and should be the goal while we are living this life. Dependence on prescribed drugs to pseudo fix health issues is way out of hand, and although certain medications are needed for a small percentage of medical issues, I am addressing the general populous that continue to accommodate their “reasons” and unhealthy way of life. Living a healthy lifestyle is not a half in and half out scenario either because occasional effort equals occasional results. We want so much to change but are not willing to give the effort and this is the bottom line. Results can and will happen, but the choice is up to you.
