You Only Get One

As I have said before on a number of occasions, the main reason we eat healthy and exercise is to be healthy. Every other aspect is just a byproduct of being healthy.

  • Being lean
  • Being fit
  • Being strong
  • Feeling great
  • Feeling joyful

Sometimes I am amazed at how we treat our bodies knowing full well that we only get one! This is the one thing you cannot change. No matter what.

But if you looked around the world, you would think we could trade it in at anytime and get a brand new one. The state of our health is declining at an alarming rate.

  • In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 600 million were obese.
  • 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2014.
  • The numbers are increasing daily.
  • Obesity is preventable.

Today, a person can be ridiculed for being fit and denying bad food choices in public.

Today, a person can be criticized for making their children eat healthy.

Today, being overweight is being glorified and food is made an idol.

Today, if you mention obesity, you may be called a non-empathetic bigot.

 

Not here. Not at active NRG.

Today, we are joining a resistance.

Today, we are making a stand.

Today, we are choosing to cherish the one and only body we get.

Today, we are denying ourselves and becoming the person we dream to be.

Don’t spend years of your life regretting the choices you made in regards to your health. Make a decision today that you are worth more than food. You can live a life without food controlling you. There are still plenty of times to enjoy some good foods. Remember, you are not really enjoying something if in return it is taking away the only life you get.

No one is perfect but get fired up about being healthy and don’t fall for the lies, including the ones you tell yourself.

Make no mistake; you are more valuable than any food. You know it and everyone else does too.

Do not wait until it is too late.
