Body Image and Good Health

It's the new year. We're all thinking about getting healthy again, and working out and eating well are at the top of most people's list. And while I will always always always encourage you to eat well and move your body, I want to be clear about my intentions.

Eating well is not dieting. Its main focus is not losing weight, being skinny, or looking a certain way. It is about giving our bodies good nutrients, good fuel so that it can function optimally. 

It's all about feeling good. 

I know plenty of people who are extremely healthy, but they don't look like models. Come on, by now we all have seen what it takes to look like one of those people in a magazine. Make-up, hair, and lighting for the photo shoot, followed by major photoshopping before it goes to print. We know it's not real, so why should it be something to strive for?

Instead, let's strive for health. Let's feel, good, sleep well, and have great energy that gets us through the day. Let's find happiness outside our appearance and take joy in what it feels like to be healthy.

Here's to a happy, healthy 2017, with or without those few extra pounds!
