We take so much care on the outside appearance, with lotions and washes. Scrubs, exfoliating. We search for our products online in shops we test them out. Our cupboards are filled with half used bottle of stuff. Before we have even finished a product we are already filling our baskets with something new, hoping it will be better than the stuff that already works.

When it comes to what we put in our body, there comes a time when it is entirely our decision. When we are young we don’t have a choice. Our parents buy, prepare and cook our food and usually from there we tend to follow their habits and their decisions. As time goes on and information is presented to us, we learn so much in what we can do to live longer, better and happier. Some of us go down that path with ease others not so much and then there are those who don’t care. Either way we hold the choice in our hands.
Living a healthier lifestyle should be everyone’s choice but it is not. Although a healthier lifestyle appeals to me I just can not get to it.

I eat healthy food anyway, I love my fruits and vegetables, seeds and greens. So eating healthy food actually isn’t a hard thing for me to do. What is hard is eating healthy consistently and making it a priority. That being said if someone was going to cook all my meals I probably wouldn’t have too much of a problem. Although I would like some homemade fried chicken and homemade chips at some point.
If you are anything like me and you desperately need to lose weight and need to get a somewhat healthier eating lifestyle; but you tend to do the all or nothing approach, then STOP! STOP! right now. This kind of mind-set can never get you off the starting block. There are some people who can set their mind to it and almost in an instant, … Continue reading If you can not diet take steps
