I am finding it so difficult to figure out exactly what being healthy means to me. After speaking to different people, I realize that we all have very different ideas of what being healthy is. When I first started reading blogs, I thought wow these women can eat so much and still be in shape. I automatically made myself believe it was because they are so active.
For me, being healthy means eating nutritious foods that help my body function. For example, if I eat veggies I feel good because I know I am putting something positive into my body. If I eat cookies, I might feel comforted, but I begin to think what did this cookie do to help me nourish my body? That’s it. I need to nourish my body. No one else is going to take care of my body. If I don’t feed my body it will rebel and stop functioning. If I only give my body garbage to eat than it will always be lethargic.
This morning, I had a cup of coffee. Than I had a chobani vanilla yogurt, 1 teaspoon of chia seeds, 1 wheatbix biscuit, and 1/2 banana all mixed together. It was delicious and satisfying. I also feel that every part of my breakfast helped nourish my body (well except for the coffee). I think that if at each meal I make an effort to nourish my body I will be happier with how my body functions.
I don’t know. It’s always difficult to figure out what works for your body. Especially since our bodies are always changing… hmmm….
How have you found the perfect balance of nourishment for your body?
