do you ever think to yourself:
man, i really used to be into____?
well, i used to be into health & fitness.
in part, i been an active person for years;
however, i was forced into next-level health consciousness by my diabetes diagnosis.
and i did well for a while...
don't get me wrong.
i still work out a few times a week,
but my dedication to healthy eating has taken a hit.
i use the same excuses most people use:
i'm tired when i get off work.
these days i need convenience.
i'll start to eat better tomorrow.
that's not going to cut it.
sure, i am always drawn to the benefit of looking better.
but i am also a firm believer that a balanced diet and exercise
make you a more highly functioning performer in all aspects of life.
the energy is there. the mood is there. the confidence is there.
and doctor visits are a lot less stressful.
so how am i planning to jump back on the wagon?
i have a few motivators:
i am going to the beach for a week on june 22.
while there, i am going to eat fresh food and hit the pavement.
i am downloading new music for those thirty minute jogs.
i am considering another half marathon.
i am planning accountability posts once a week, so expect more in the way of meals and fitness adventures. this should be fun in the memphis heat...
some of my favorite fitness blogs + sites
how about these for motivating images?
is anyone in my boat? anyone?
