Challenges

With resources declining and people in the USA spending more on health care annually per capita we are finding that the health of Americans are at an all time decline when compared to other nations.  We are the most overfed and undernourished nation and obesity and diabetes are out of control.  Lifestyles hasten the development of many prominent illnesses and causes of death.  The poor nutrition is in response to society wanting instant gratification and not taking the time to determine which dietary choices are best for their needs.  I find it amazing that research and statistics show that most health problems are related to poor quality diets and nutritional imbalances that most Americans still struggle to make this connection.

It is never too late to get your life back on track and feeling better.  Choosing to take control of our mindless snacking, our poor food choices and getting our fannies off the couch to exercise will have greater benefits than any pill you can receive from your doctor.  We all struggle to push ourselves to accomplish this and just see it as such a monumental task we never begin.  Beginning is ease but sticking with it is even more difficult.  Dependent on the part of the country you are from, weather and lighting conditions can add to the hibernation we all want to do in the winter months.

We are all ultimately responsible for creating the world we want to live in.  It is important to place a value on our lives and not only set goals for ourselves but to follow through on each small step to reach the milestones and eventually our goal be it weight loss or just getting healthy.  It is easier to enlist the support of those around you to help you when you need it most.  Exercising is easier with a partner and many times that simple motivation of not wanting to let others down helps us reach our goal of not letting ourselves down by giving up too easily.  Keep your eye on the targets and even if there are little set backs, get back on track as soon as possible.  Each day gets easier.
