Consistency and balance! Two things I believe are the key to living healthy. I think women try to make it harder than it really is with extreme fitness or diet plans. It is learning to create daily habits that bring consistency for a well balanced life. I have learned there are three things I must do every day to stay healthy on the inside and out.
Start my day with Jesus…well coffee too
The Lord has shown me that I cannot honor Him, make good choices with my mind, body and others unless I give him the first part of my day through studying His word and prayer. It is during that time, I learned more about Him and what He would have me to do with my time and the purpose He has for my life. My morning starts with a cup of coffee and Jesus next to my Bible basket.
Some days I have an hour. Some days I have 20 minutes. The goal is to move and do something whether it is a long walk with my husband or kids, a run by myself with a girlfriend, a high intensity quick strength training workout or 10 minutes of stretch or yoga. I just move.
Two -three servings of fruit is a must each day along with a few vegetables to get in the nutrients the body requires. For busy days, I choose fruits that can travel and easy to eat. Of course, it is not always perfect but at least 80% of the time.
This is now a part of my life and has become what I do. I encourage you today to focus on time with the Lord and He will begin to show you how and where you can begin taking steps every day to live healthy and fit on the inside and out.
