Healthy....it's not just about a number on the scale. It's not just about eating a million servings of fruits and vegetables. It's not just about exercising regularly. Healthy is a combination of all of these things and having a healthy mental attitude about yourself.
Two years ago, I started on my journey to healthy. It's been a long and challenging journey. It's been a fun journey. It's been a journey filled with excitement, pride and tears.
I no longer obsess about every bite I take. Some days I don't have good eating habits, but I know it's not the end of the world; I just refocus the following day. I do not deny myself anything, but I do deny myself LOTS of that same anything. I set limits for eating and try to stick to them. The fact that the scale has pretty much stayed in the same place for a year says that I have learned some good habits. Well, and that I run a lot. This is what healthy means to me. There are days where I see myself in a picture and don't recognize the "new" me. I love shopping for cute, fashionable clothes (sorry honey! I'm going to need a job soon to support my new clothes addiction!). I am happy to be healthy! Now, on those bad days, I will need to come back here and remind myself of this....
What says "healthy" to you?
