What is your healthy?

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It is a balmy 94 degrees in North Texas this afternoon but I'm feeling alive and wonderful!

So I've been journaling on healthy weight and healthy BMI today. A few years back I met a trainer at my gym who wanted to get into the military and she diffidently looked the part. She was tall, thin and fit however, they denied her because she was "overweight" by their standard... I've also seen pictures on Facebook and Pinterest of gorgeous fit women who claim their BMI says they are overweight.

This really got me to thinking. A little over a year ago I got down to 160 pounds. I was feeling confident and sexy but I was still "overweight" Because of that and family issues I fell off and gained back 40 pounds.

Now my question is What's your healthy?
Because it's not a number!

My healthy is not feeling stuffed after a meal.
My healthy is doing two hours of calculated exercise a day.
My healthy is feeling sexy in my clothes.
My healthy is not being too busy or too tired to play with my kids.
My healthy is drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
My healthy is no fried foods.
My healthy is lots of fresh fruits and veggies.
My healthy is remembering every sacrifice is worth it and I want to inspire people that sitting around all day eating junk food is not healthy and not worth it! LIFE IS WORTH LIVING, and living to the fullest!!!

I hope this was inspiring and really showed my heart. Because I have so much love for everyone who makes a decision to be healthy.

So tell me what's your healthy? I want to know, I want to know what your goal healthy is, not your goal weight. Because I got burned racing to a number.
