Take your current condition now. Maybe you are in great shape, maybe you are new to fitness or maybe your health is failing you? It is truly up to you to either maintain your current fitness shape or improve your health to avoid the billboard slogan ” where are you going to live when you wear your body out?”. Remember – nothing is forever and take nothing for granted. I personally found this out to be true.
Are you truly living your life to its fullest potential or are you just living life? Are you tired of being tired? What are you going to do to change? Do you have unhealthy habits that are shortening your lifespan? If you are currently taking medications for your failing health that can be controlled by living a healthier lifestyle imagine 10-15 years from now? Maybe those medications are doubled or tripled by then? What if you have gained 10 pounds in the last year or have had to buy larger sizes this year? Imagine in 10-15 years if you do nothing now?
Studies show by 2050 that 1 in 3 people will have type 2 diabetes and other morbid risk factors. With the American diet consisting of over 70% processed foods and the activity level of Americans dropping the trend is showing a shorter life expectancy than our elders.
Taking care of ourselves is not selfish…but self responsibility. Your health is the most valuable asset you have…once it fails you…no amount of time or money with stand in your way to retrieve it back.
