My body is very strong,
It hadn't been for oh-so-long
But now it is, and I must say
I really do love it this way
I challenge it most everyday
With resistance training, yoga and some cardio play
I nourish it with whole grains, lean meats, dairy, veggies, fruit
With some indulgences like chocolate, potato chips and ice cream, to boot
Once upon a time every little slip-up
Would have been a sign for me to just give up
But now I know that every moment is a start
For me to do something smart for my body, mind and heart
So instead of soda, I'll have water or unsweetened tea
And I'll just take one serving instead of three
I'll eat a salad with my meal
Or maybe an apple, with the peel
I'll do my workout, even if it's late
Because I know it'll make me feel great!
Little changes, here and there
Soon become noticeable everywhere
Pants that once made me say "ow!"
Feel so loose and comfy now
And all those tank tops I used to want to hide,
I think I'm ready to wear them outside!
My hair seems thicker, stronger
My legs seem leaner, longer
I sleep better at night, than ever before
And I'm not tired all day anymore!
Because my body is very strong
It will get me where I need to go
And healthy living is everything I need to know
