A vigorous life

Posted on January 30, 2013. Filed under: wellness | Tags: , , |

How many of us can honestly say that we are living a vigorous life? I honestly cannot. And with the CDC categorizing 33.3% of Americans as overweight, I don’t think that many other Americans can either.

What is a vigorous life? Vigor is defined as active bodily or mental strength or force; active healthy well-balanced growth; intensity of action or effect: force.

What is stopping us from living this life? I believe the first and primary reason is the food we put into our bodies. We are constantly polluting our bodies with addictive fats and sugars that clog our arteries and makes as fat, sluggish, depressed. This combined with a sedentary lifestyle sets us up for a life without vigor.

What is the solution? Exactly the opposite of the cause. It’s adopting a healthy balanced lifestyle; one centered around whole, unprocessed foods and good doses of exercise and activity. My food: (mostly) unprocessed, vegetarian diet with fish aka pescatarian. My exercise: training for endurance events; marathons and triathlons.

Through this blog, I will share my personal triumphs and struggles as I strive for a vigorous life; one filled with strength, well-balanced growth, and intensity. Hopefully I will inspire others to do the same.
