Why is it that we women can find time to take care of everyone but ourselves? The title of this blog refers to me daring you to change that: Take back control of your body, which is God’s temple. Put yourself on your list of things to take care of.
Think of your diet as like the root system of a tree; your exercise program is the trunk of that tree, and the various roles you fulfill in life (such as spouse, parent, or employee) are the leaves and branches. Just as a tree will look wilted and unhealthy if its root system and trunk aren’t strong, so will you if you don’t take care of your physical needs properly.
Each day that I eat well and exercise, the investment that I make is returned to me tenfold. I’m sure that you will discover the same thing. But you need to prove it to yourself. Make today the day that you start.
