The Other Side of Healthy That Everyone Seems to Forget
This is something that has taken me an extremely long time to comprehend. To this day, I still will eat pancakes for breakfast, a hamburger for lunch, and then pancakes again for lunch because I had leftovers every once in a while! It's a work in progress. It just seems so much easier to workout to make up for unhealthy eating, but it doesn't work like that.
With that being said, there is nothing wrong with loving to work out every day. However, it you want to live a real healthy lifestyle and have tons of energy for your morning workouts plus ten hours after that, you've got to make some more focus on what you eat.
Because of this, I know I need to focus more on my eating. I have really enjoyed using the My Fitness app to track what I eat. It is a bit of an eye opener as to what goes into my body every day, and motivates me to eat healthier because I am physically writing down (or type up, I guess) what I have eaten.
I hope I have convinced you to take a second look at your meals for the rest of the day. My intent was to spark a little something in you. Take the challenge to treat your body with some real food. Happy eating, my friends!
I have been posting all week about fitness and health on my blog! Check out my post yesterday by clicking here, and come back tomorrow for my Friday wrap up for the week. As always...
