When it comes to health and wellness, it's easy to focus on what you want. But who thinks about where you came from? What does your past say about your present?
And no, it has nothing to do with what you ate back in high school. (Even though that could play a part in your health.)
What I am referring to are your genealogy and genetics. In addition, how you have treated your body and health overall.
The flashy, in-your-face messaging tells us that what we need is wrapped up in a special box, point controlled, and food that doesn't have to be refrigerated.
Now does any of that sound strange to you?
If we would stop long enough and leave the part about the results (that most of the time only helps a select few) out of the picture, we would discover that this is NOT normal.
Who lives a healthy lifestyle without eating "real" food?
Well, my health has been very complicated my entire life. I wasn't one who was overly obese growing up. Yet, because of my height, weight was something that I did watch carefully as I grew older. I noticed how my body changed from my teens into my twenties with wider hips, calves of steel, with a shorter torso.
It seemed I had all strikes against me. If I wanted to be that thin model girl, I had to eat very little. And it didn't take much for me to gain the weight back. (And not a lot of weight; just 5-10 lbs.)
Throughout my journey, I've learned so much (and still learning) about how my past has been a curse and a blessing all at the same time.
I tell you all of this so you don't assume that your health and wellness has an easy answer. Yes, you start with the basics. But in order to become your healthiest, you must look at your past to point your present into the future.The K.I.S.S. ~ Look at your past to point your present into the future!
First, I want you to know that overnight, you will not figure out everything about your body.
You can certainly make some great headway. However, know it will take time and some tweaking.
- Be patient with you and your body.
- Love who you are throughout all stages of your findings.
- Seek the truth. Don't try and put yourself in a box. Most likely, you are so unique, you won't fit into a box.
Another big component I've had to work on --- don't rush the process!
"One step at a time leads to miles of greatness!" ~ Kristianne Wargo
You didn't get to where you are today overnight. You will not get healthy overnight either.
If you want the secret, which I'm sure you do. It is CONSISTENCY!!!
- Trust the process.
- Follow through.
- Be consistent.
You can be the healthiest person you want to be. Yes, it will take work. Yes, you will become impatient. Yes, you will wish you started this years ago. Yes, you will want to give up.
BUT YOU WILL NOT GIVE UP!!!
You will learn your body from the past so you can make changes to the present that will impact your future.
It's all connected."One step at a time leads to miles of greatness!"
