When Matthew and I first started dating I decided to lay down the law. I don't hike. I've never enjoyed it. If I want to enjoy the outdoors, I'll go camping and stay by the fire. Dragging myself up the side of the mountain was certainly not my idea of a good time. Things have changed! This weekend we are going on a hike and I'm actually looking forward to it.
These days I know that healthy bodies have more fun. Healthy bodies play with their children. They shop in the stores without wondering if the store carries their size. They ride horses without wondering if they are just a bit too much for the horse. They wear swimsuits and play in pools and oceans without worrying what other people are thinking of them. They climb. They run. They dance. They ski. They discover.
I can do those things. I can have a healthy body. I'm so excited to be able to do these things with my body...and I certainly wouldn't trade it for a cheeseburger! (yes, even if it had bacon on it.)
What are your plans for your healthy body?
