This is Part XV of the “31 Days of Healthy Living” series.
Have you ever asked yourself why?
Why do you look for nutritious, delicious recipes?
Why do you work out (even on the days when you really don’t feel like it)?
Why do you care about being the healthiest version of YOU?
I ask myself this question sometimes, because I’m curious as to what my answer might be.
Because it changes, you know.
Just like my motivation.
Speaking of which, I’m not going to lie. Some days, my motivation is a pair of skinny jeans sitting in my closet. But more often than not, my motivation runs a whole lot deeper than that.
Eating well and staying active literally KEEPS me well and active. It gives me boundless energy…and I love that feeling!
Because feeling healthy and vibrant lets me enjoy my life and the life of others to the absolute fullest.
Because nothing beats the feeling of knowing that you can do anything (ANYTHING!) you set your mind to.
Because the actual movement of walking and running gives me the most delicious taste of peace. God created our bodies to move…it just feels good!
The source or target of motivation can constantly change and develop in our lives.
But it’s important to know why we want to get (and stay) healthy.
It is, really, the very starting block.
The starting block to a life full of energy, LIFE, happiness and peace.
