Is it selfish?
…to carve out a significant portion of your weekly budget on healthy food to stock your kitchen cabinets, fridge and freezer with?
…to schedule your workouts into pieces of your day, just like anything else? Even if that means splitting them up into two workouts a day?
…to invest in the friendships and relationships in your life who support your desire to live a healthy, fit lifestyle? Who ultimately are a positive, uplifting and supportive force in your life?
…to build your life around something you are very passionate about: living your best, energized and fittest life now?
…to re-organize your schedule if it means you can make that class at your favorite gym or studio, the one that really gets your blood pumping and keeps you coming back for more?
…to take 20-30 minutes even on the busiest of days, to do something (move! skip! jump! laugh!) that will make you feel good and have a positive impact on your health?
…to choose to be healthy, especially if it means being a positive influence on the loved ones in your life – your children, your husband, your wife, your sisters, your brothers, your parents, your friends – even if that choice sometimes takes you away from the very same loved ones you’re trying to influence?
…to put yourself first, if it means that you’ll live a longer, happier, more fulfilling life? So you can be the best you can be for yourself and for all of the people you love, and all that love you?
…to live your best life right now?
…Is it selfish?
It is selfless.
