An Open Mind

Saturday, November 10, 2012

I think an open mind has been my biggest asset in my health/fitness journey. Being willing to look at things differently and rework preconceived notions of things has made this a success.

The majority of my life diet meant starving myself, exercising, and being miserable. It meant embarassing public weigh ins and a constantly growling stomach. When I did it, the meals were bland, boring, and flavorless.

Over the last nine years, my definition of diet has been changed to the way you nourish and feed your body to maintain a healthy state. This open mind and ability to learn and take new approaches has brought me to a whole new happy place.

Food is exciting and fun, there's so many varieties and options that are healthy and good. Exercise and fitness is an exciting challenge. I love seeing what my body is capable of and pushing it to new levels. This diet thing is fun, educational, and something I want to do every day.
