Doing one healthy thing can affect your life in all kinds of ways. Since I am a person who devoutly believes chocolate is one of the four basic food groups, eating in a healthy way does not come naturally to me. I am a grown-up rational person, but I still find myself wistfully wondering why Diet Dr. Pepper and a cupcake is not a complete meal and hoping they will someday discover a valid nutritional reason why no one has to eat greens (especially spinach, the Scourge of Mealtime).
I stopped at the store on the way to work this morning and instead of getting a candy bar, I got a banana. I thought, this will be good to have in the afternoon, since I am practicing after work. Skating makes me want healthier food. It doesn’t make me feel as if I “should” eat healthier, it makes me actually eat healthier.
I want to do well out there, and I need my body to be in good shape to do that. The better I feel, the more I can do. The more I can do, the more fun I have. The more fun I have, well, the more fun I have, right?
Skating–it’s good and good for you!
