My body and me

/ 1 comment
For the longest time I ignored my body. I only used it to get from A to B. And when I did pay attention to it, I treated it like crap.

I stuffed it with Big Macs, and laid it on the sofa while munching my way through a bag of cheese puffs.

It wasn't until I had 4 kids and was in my late thirties that I started to take notice of this thing that was my body. I realized that I only had the one. And that if I wanted to be able to use it for a long time, I should probably make sure it was healthy and in good condition.

That's when I started to take my body for a run every day, for at least 30 minutes. And it became important to me to have my body put in at least 10.000 steps every day.

Though I still feel my body should shut up and put up, and just take me where I want to go, I get that me and my body are one.

And that I had better take good care of it. Though most day I still treat it like in the picture....

Maybe someday, we'll actually become good friends.

How do you treat yóur body?

    I've read that building muscle is important too. That's why I finally gave in and started doing crosstraining. It really is a learning process, isn't it.

    I treat my body a lot better now than I did before. I've have learnt a lot about health and fitness in the last few years, and I'm the fittest I've ever been (I'm building muscle now, so I might be fitter later this year).

    I agree...said while munching on oreos...irony abounds.
