A couple of weeks ago I decided that it was time I started taking my health seriously. I have always been a generally healthy person: I try to cook at home as often as possible, I usually workout on a semi-regular basis, and I walk at least 30 minutes a day. However, even with all of that I am not as consistent as I should be and I am not by any means in the best shape of my life. As my birthday is quickly approaching, I can recall telling myself the goal was to be twenty-fine… yeah that’s a joke. So, Fearless Family, I am proclaiming to you and asking you to help hold me accountable in staying true to my goal of making my health my most important investment over the next year and every year after that.
I took the leap and signed up for kickboxing classes which are way more expensive than your average NYC gym--#stressed. However, after my first free class, I decided that if I really wanted to see a change in my life, I had to actively pursue it. After a little bit of negotiating, I sucked up any apprehension, signed the dotted line and swiped my card into the system. Deciding to sign up for this 70 class commitment and watching a nice chunk of change withdrawn from my account, will definitely change my personal budget and I will more likely have to opp for a regular coffee instead of my usual lattes in order to stay within my budget (which will be a struggle … as a girl needs her lattes).
I share this with ya’ll to challenge you to look at your health regimen, and find where there are gaps. When was the last time you went to the doctor for a check up? Or the last time you ate a fruit or vegetable? When was the last time you went to the gym or took a class? One of the few things that will get us to old age is making sure that we are are taking c.are of our bodies
So, every time that you don’t want to go to the gym or decide to order takeout when you have plenty of food to cook in your fridge, remember that the more proactive you are now, the more active you’ll be later on. We want to know, how are you staying active and investing in your health?
