Personal Training the Trainer

My roommate and I are both interested in being personal trainers so we're going to train each other for the next couple of months. As we were talking about trying to eat healthier to correspond with our healthy exercise routine, she said something that stuck with me. She said, "You have a contract with your body. When you take care of your body, your body takes care of you." It's true. When you give your body good food, your body functions really well--it protects you from illness, you're regular, you're full of energy, you can do the things you want to do, it carries you through life. When you break that contract, it breaks that contract with you, too. When you consistently choose food high in fats, you break that contract. When you don't give your body the veggies and fruits it needs to function at a high level, it doesn't uphold the contract either. You feel tired all the time. You want to sleep instead of run. You want to watch TV. You get more exhausted. Interesting. Just a little thought for today...
