I wanted to take a moment to wish myself a very happy and healthy Valentines day! And even though Valentines day is only one day of the year, I am going to love myself enough to be my own Valentine all year long.
For me, the hardest part of this journey is eating right. I really struggle with that. I love exercising...but sometimes I undo all the benefits of my workouts by eating the wrong food, and too much of it. This year, I promise to love myself enough to make smarter, better choices when it comes to eating. I know I can do it. What works for me is to challenge myself. (I love a good challenge!) So my challenge to myself is to try to make each meal that I eat as healthy as possible. Before I put anything on my plate, I will ask myself "Is this healthy?"
Its true what they say.....good health really is its own reward. This journey is not just about losing weight...its about gaining health! When I am eating real, healthy foods (and not processed junk) I feel so much better in every area of my life. I have more energy, and I perform better for my workouts. I sleep better. I am just all around happier and nicer to be around when I am taking care of my health.
So this year, I will be my own Valentine all year long and I will love myself enough to eat right and exercise. That is the best gift I could possibly give to myself!
Happy Valentines day to me...and to you! Don't forget to be your own Valentine too. You are worth it!
