It's Halloween season again! And one of the main traditions of Halloween is to dress up and pretend to be someone or something that you're not. Ahhh, to be young again. Little girls dressing up like Mommy and pretending to be her. Little boys putting on a fire fighter's hat pretending to be a firefighter responding to a 3 alarm fire!
It's fun now and then to pretend but not when it comes to health and nutrition! Everyone is looking for that pill or piece of equipment that will magically cause us to be our ideal weight and experiencing an abundantly healthy body. But, the truth be told, a lean, healthy, vibrant body is the result of proper exercise, nutrition, rest, hydration and avoidance of toxins, pollutants and other unnatural substances.
There is just no way that a single pill or handful of pills are going to take the place for the real source of vitamins and energy which is our God given food supply! Many times the vitamins we take are in a form that is either hard for the body to digest fully or without the right balance of nutrients to produce the natural synergy that takes place in fresh, organic, raw foods. We wind up with very expensive urine and feces!
There is just no device that is going to produce "total fitness" in just 15 min. a day 3 times a week. There is a saying that if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is! There is no short cut to health and fitness! Health and fitness is the result of making good, sometimes hard, decisions on a daily basis. But the rewards are well worth it!
Have a safe and fun filled Halloween and let it be the one day we pretend to be who we really aren't.
Grace and Peace,
