So I decided to put a few things down on the virtual paper to remind me of why I know this is important for me to choose to be healthy. Some are minor, and and some are big reasons, but I hope that I can look back on these when I need to get that extra boost of willpower. I thought there might be the off chance that they might help you too :)
1. My Sister's Wedding
2. To Fuel My Workouts
3. To Give Me Energy and Relieve Stress
4. To Make My Insides Happy
I want to be clear, I'm not talking about striving for a bikini body. I personally find that when I'm eating well, looking after my body and exercising consistently, my self confidence sky rockets, and I wear my clothes with pride. And that confidence makes anyone look better. So I want to rock my bikini from the inside, because I know I'm doing everything I can to keep my body fit and healthy.
6. Read a Motivational Book
I may have mentioned that I read a lot. I like to mix it up between real life stuff and fiction. Sometimes though, I really just want a book to inspire me in an area of my life.
I've been missing my running, so I was perusing the running related books I had in my Kobo and I realised I hadn't read Chasing the Runner's High by Ray Charbonneau. Once I got into it, I found that I could really identify with his feelings about running, and what it brings to his life. I think I also have a tendency to get a bit obsessive about things like he admits. I'm not sure I'm quite ready to get into ultra-running, but it definitely made me nostalgic about a long run. Hopefully soon!
What are the things in your life that are motivating you right now to be healthy?
