Some of you may refer to me as a health freak and I have to say I take that as a huge compliment! And I’m often asked if I ever get tired of living this way. My answer is “why would I EVER go back?” Let me list you my top 10 reason why I choose to live, eat and breath this way/
#10 Endorphins are the best drug on the planet and the human body dishes it out to you every time you exercise! Even if it’s just a 10-minute walk!! Imagine that!! You can get high EVERYDAY!! All you have to do is WALK!!!
#9 Living healthy makes me strong! Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Strength is empowerment and that is something nobody can ever take away from you.
#8 Eating healthy allows me to be in control of my health. It’s a great feeling knowing I am in charge of my body. Being completely attuned and synchronized helps me keep myself in heck. The moment I may start to feel a little bit iffy, I can pinpoint the issue within a 48 hour time frame.
#7 I’m an amazing juggler!! It’s true!! I manage my time extremely well. In fact, I’m much better when I have MORE on my plate. Being organized with my eating and workout schedule allows me to spend more time on other matters.
#6 NO STRESS!! I admit I’m awesome at “winging-it” but that’s because I can handle most anything that’s thrown at me.
#5 I’m FUNNER!!! Haha! I know that’s not a real word but it’s true, when I don’t exercise for more than 24 hours, I become a caged lion and when I meet people who are consistently moody, blue, combative, it’s because they do not put themselves first.
#4 So much more productive!! When I fuel my body and exercise first thing in the morning, I get so much done. I become this well-oiled machine that works on auto pilot. It’s awesome!
#3 Keep my blues away. Most of you know I battled with PPD with my pregnancies and was on medication for years. This for me is enough reason to turn my life around. I don’t ever want to become a burden to my family because of poor health choices.
#2 Walk the walk for my kids’ sake. Enough said.
#1 In the words of Billy Crystal as Nando, It’s not how you feel, it’s how. You. Look! And you, dahling, hmmmm, you look mahvelous! Absolutely mahvelous!”
Don’t just get fit, Get Josette!
