Are you actually INVESTING in your health?
My day has been a great day! I went back to Fremantle, where I am moving back to…I am SO excited.
I came home and didn’t want to go running. I didn’t want to sweat. I just wanted to sit on my ass and do nothing. I felt like this.
But I pulled myself off of the ground and peeled myself away from my computer and busted out a run.
- 5km/3 miles= 30 minutes
- 10 min/miles
Then I came back to this….remember when I went to the hospital?
Yeah..that’s RIGHT… One Thousand Thirteen Hundred and Twelve dollars and no cents.
I have to admit that I just broke down. Remember when I wrote how I couldn’t afford to go running? How the HELL am I going to afford to pay a hospital bill. I frantically looked through my overseas insurance…and hopefully they’ll cover a good portion of it.
BUT IT’S BIGGER THAN MONEY.
If I could just shake you..ME…and say that each day is an investment in your health.
This bill resulted from me neglecting my body. Shoving it with binges, lack of sleep, coffee, sugar, gluten, dairy. Total and complete neglect of sleep. Obsession with perfection. I punished my body and it revolted…to the point I thought I was going to have to go through what I went through in Japan.
(Me leaving hospital, fasting on an IV drip taking the bullet train)
I BEG of YOU! BEG OF YOU! From a girl who has put herself into hospital twice because she didn’t take of herself. For all of the older patients I tended to at the hospital who kept ‘putting it off til tomorrow’ who are now on 20+ meds wishing they would have lost the weight/quit smoking/walked more/stressed less…..
START INVESTING NOW!
I am angry that I let myself slip up again and forget that life is a precious balance where the biggest and most precious investment is in you. But I am SO thankful that I am no longer keeping my past ways a secret and that I am pushing myself to do something, like running, to invest everyday in ME!
How are you investing in your health TODAY?
