I am not nearly as healthy as I ought to be but I make sure I eat right. I think this is a big proponent of continued success. How long can an automobile continue to go down the road without fuel. Our bodies are the same way. This is not an original thought. However, it is easy for me to slip into eating junk when in a hurry.
I quit smoking over twenty years ago. Most of my friends don't smoke. I do drink occasionally. Maybe two or three times a year a couple drinks at the most. I understand the importance of taking care of oneself, especially as I get older.
Lots of times folks say I look younger than I am. I don't look like I have grown children. I think it is a result of trying to take care of myself. After all if I don't who will?
Every Thursday afternoon for the past few months I have gone into Lynchburg (I live about 25 miles from the city) and picked up my fresh locally grown vegetables. I have subscribed to Horse & Buggy Produce. I love it because I don't have to make decisions what to purchase you get what is in season and I have enjoyed fresh strawberries, cherries, peaches, corn and many other fresh fruits and vegetables that have been locally grown.
I have also been taking Juice Plus. I have noticed a big difference in my skin, nails and hair. Not to mention I've lost a few inches here and there! My energy level has significantly increased and I have less headaches and body aches on those days when I push myself to the limit.
I have not gotten the exercise thing implemented. But I am taking baby steps here. Getting healthy is a lifestyle and it is going to take some time for me to change the way I live. I enjoy hanging out and working with like minded people. It helps me keep my own thoughts on track and pushes me to be better.
