Each of us have a different reason why we want to be the healthiest version of ourselves. When I say healthy, it doesn’t mean losing weight or building muscle. It means to feel the best we can in our bodies. If you’re feeling heavy and sluggish than losing some weight may help. Also remember to take adequate rest and giving our cells the fuel it needs to perform optimally. Simply losing weight won’t make you healthier, it’s more than that.
I used to have no motivation
When my body was for me myself and I, honestly, I didn’t take good care of myself. I was on the slack train. Also I was brain washed to believe there’s no way I can be healthy unless I put myself on a strict program. I mean, those programs always back fire anyway, right? It sure did for me.
The statistics didn’t look good
When I found out I was pregnant, my BMI was over 30. My due date was after my 35th birthday. Statistics said first time moms over 35 are at a higher risk for complications. The stats also said if your BMI is over 30 there’s a higher chance of gestational diabetes and high blood pressure. Both causes problems with the growing baby. I made a lot of lifestyle changes real quick.
My motivation to stay healthy is my family
Now that I’m a mom, a breast feeding mom, my body first cares for my child. Whatever is left after feeding the baby is used to operate this body. Staying healthy means I can feed him, support him, and grow with him. If I’m not feeling my best, I can’t give my family the best of me.
Making a family is a quick way to get motivated to be healthy, but you don’t have to wait for it to happen. Ask yourself what you want to do with your life. And imagine how you want to feel doing that thing. How can you bring that feeling into your life, right now? What changes need to happen?
Most of us do not get enough nutrition for our bodies to function optimally. If you want to start your health journey. I recommend by providing your body with the best nutritional supplements.
