Glad to finally do this. You know, write about something that I am passionate about and that is Health and fitness. Over the years , the media and magazine covers have flashed us with images of what they believe is ‘what a woman should look like’ and has made us believe that for you to be beautiful, then you have to be a walking corpse. That’s not so harsh if you actually ponder on it because it is true and this has pushed girls and women around the world to the wall in pursuit of a size zero body. It is sad because it has led to sick behaviors like starvation , binge eating , fad dieting , you know , just so many unhealthy life choices to mention but a few. It breaks my heart to see how this has spread like some flu outbreak and it has become twice as hard to convince a girl with a low self esteem imposed by someone or something else that she was born beautiful . Your health is determined by how you live, I agree 100% , but your beauty? Ah Ah! Honey, That you already have. If you think you are not all you are trying to say is God is not perfect and that He made you ugly. There is no better way to say it, that’s that. it is like mocking him and you better take that back
because, you! yeah you! you’re so fancy!
But, ask yourself this, does your health match your look? Is it as beautiful? have you been indulging in unhealthy habits all your life? Do you eat that pizza from Monday to Friday and miss a day to even work out. If you are guilty as charged, let me see your hands up! And whip them like you just do care. Because you should That is just wrong. unfortunately , I just put my hands up too. why you ask? Because I used to , I have never been overweight and so I thought, ‘’Oh well, I have nothing to worry about ‘’ and that was just before I knew the risk I was putting myself and the people I love into. I decided to make a turn in my life ,to start eating healthy and to work out. Not because I hated the way I looked and thought I was ugly or something, But simply because I realized what I was missing. The feel-good feeling it came with , the double confidence it tagged along with , how stronger I felt , how healthier I became and of course how contagiously infectious it became to the people around me and my friends who now even come to me for advice and indeed all that is what matters. Couch health and fitness is simply about doing your thing at home .I have never stepped foot in a gym . I do all my workouts at home and I feel equally satisfied , let us just say I enjoy making my own rules .So even as you make that step today, to start working out and eating better, I can promise you one thing, It will not be easy , ” It’s all black and white ” at first but it gets colorful .it will hurt just a tiny bit or even more
you will get a wet wave of slaps from critics but turn the other cheek and just (shake it off, just shake it off, sorry I got tempted to do some Taylor swift)
at the end of the day, you’ll be happy and driven to do it again and again
I’ll let you in on a little secret that I am sure you already know about , that body you got? it is the only place you spend your time entirely, you might as well make it comfortable to live in.
