Your outward appearance tends to affect how you feel about yourself on the inside. For most people, when you look good on the outside you tend to feel good on the inside. Exercising and eating healthy are necessary steps to maintaining good health and a good appearance. There is no need to long for a good looking body if you are not willing to do the work. Having a beautiful physique requires discipline, determination, and motivation. It does require running, walking, going to gym, swimming, hiking, biking, or some physical activity. Everyone is not meant to be slim and trim, but there are benefits to being in shape and eating right. Exercise helps to relieve stress and also helps fight against disease. It is the combination of exericise and diet that does the trick. While exercise is good for the body, it defeats the purpose of exercising if you continue to feed your body with junk. Likewise, eating healthy and no exercise has its disadvantages as well. Although you may be eating healthy you may still be overweight because you are not burning off that excess fat. You may say," I have no excess fat." However, some of the slimmest people are in worse shape than those individuals that appear to overweight because they do not exercise and do not eat healthy. So to those out there with the "skinny genes" you need to hit the gym like everyone else. Any type of cardio exercise is beneficial to your heart. The easiest way to stay in shape and to be healthy is to make exericise and a healthy diet a part of your life forever. The key to staying on track is doing a variety of exercises and eating a variety of foods. Life doesn't have to be boring to look good as some may think. You can indulge every now and then just make sure you are not indulging more than you are working out. A good way to discipline yourself is to leave the junk in the store, if it is not visible it will be hard to eat. More than likely you won't feel like going out to get what you desire and you will have won the battle. However, there are times when you will crave certain things and you shouldn't hold yourself back from treating yourself every now and then. If you keep yourself from the things that you like all the time, there is a possibility that you will give up entirely because eating right just seems to hard. Most importantly, do what you feel is comfortable for you, everyone is not the same. Exercise and eat accordingly!!!!!
