How are you treating your body?

Why do we often take better care of our car than we do our bodies? Most people, in fact,pay little attention to their body until something goes wrong. Isn't it time that we start looking at what we are eating. How much and how often do you exercise? When was your last check-up? Are you treating your physical vehicle as you should? If you aren't...why not?

I don't have a car to visit the doctor as much as I should, but I do take care of my body and the first thing I do is follow the owners manual, that is the Word of G♥d. Now some will tell you that eating pork is ok, but He says not to and after seeing a pig eat a dog and then a woman who got worms in her brain...(yeah it was most likely from unwashed hands, but still they did mention pork) So I try to eat food as alive as possible, (that is fruits and vegetables that have not had their nutrients killed by chemicals) and stay away from forbidden food, that may not kill me spiritually, but it sure isn't good for my physical body...

Hi carmelanirer, Thank you for commenting and I don't feel that pork is good for us either, in fact we eat too much of all meats. Fruits,vegetables and grains are best. We also need to exercise more. Blessings.

Oh you are not going to judge me??? Sorry Pose, I have been getting a lot comments lately because I stopped eating pork and have changed away from what I grew up in and never felt healthier than I do now. And yes exercise is important too, and I do get it, with 2 puppies, my neighbors dog I dog sit for and of course whenever music is playing, I am moving, which is most of the day..lol

As we get older it is very hard to judge what you should do. We take good care of our diet and exercise regularly but does that new pain mean we need to see someone or is it just another fault of being old. Often it's hard to tell and neither of us wants to spend any more time at the doctors then we have to.

How am I treating my body? Good question! I am treating my body real bad. I am lack of sleep, lack of exercise, skipped meals, and overdosed with caffeine. That's because I really love MyLotting sooooooo much!

Oh yes Pose sometimes we don't prioritize ourselves. I just notice I'm so busy preparing everything, doing household chores, running here and there and without knowing it's getting dark already, and still there are works to do. I just take a cup of coffee and whatever available bread for snacks. At night I feel so weary that I have to go to sleep. The following morning I realized, I had accomplished so many things during the day but I forgot to take a nap even for 30 minutes. There are times that we're having headaches, we just take paracetamol until it becomes habitual but never we go for check up. This time in our older age, I would see to it that I'll have a time to take a nap, to have a check up and time to check of eating the right food. Rushing here and there, Pose is considered an exercise, (lol).
