I have always been interested in health. However, my motivation now is different to when I was younger. Having been lucky enough to have never had a weight problem, back then my motivation was based purely on what celebrity I idolised that day. Now it’s spurred on by something different – and it’s not because I’m now a mum.
It’s spurred on by just wanting to be the best version of myself – for me.
If there’s one thing this separation has taught me, it’s that everything can be taken away from you in an instant. I had never thought that this is where we’d be right now. I still don’t know how we got here. What I do know is, at the end of the day, you are in charge of looking after you. That’s not meant to sound depressing or harsh. It is reality, it’s just how it is. No one can truly tell you how or what to eat, when or how often to exercise and no one can do it for you. You need to be in charge of you. You need to take a hold of your own destiny.
Find your motivation. If you need to idolise a healthy celebrity, do it. For me it took watching a documentary I’d watched some time ago and having it’s information really hit home. Let health be your way forward and get there your way.
