This summer my family and I spent a week in Key West, Florida. Since the island is only about 4 miles long and 4 miles wide, we rented bikes and rode them all around the island every day. And it was an amazing experience with my 2 teenaged daughters and my husband. I saw just about every part of the island and got LOTS of exercise!
But, I thought 2 things while we were there:
1) I was glad I wasn’t overweight because there was no way I would have been able to do that amount of biking in that kind of heat without suffering in some way. And I would not have enjoyed that time together.
2) I wish I had been in better shape while we were there because my thighs rubbed against the bike seat a lot which detracted from the enjoyable bike ride. Also, my shorts were fairly uncomfortable since they were tighter than usual.
See, the state of our bodies matter for much more than just how we look. Our bodies dictate how much enjoyment we get out of life. If we do not take care of our bodies, we don’t get to enjoy life to its fullest.
Why Food Matters
Recent research studies show that “being overweight, drinking alcohol, eating an unhealthy diet, and not exercising, when combined, could be associated with nearly one-fourth of all cancer cases in women.” These studies show that 42% of diagnosed cancer cases could be attributed to “modifiable” risk factors—risks that are not inherited, and mostly the result of behavior that CAN BE CHANGED.
Things like sun exposure, not eating enough fruits and vegetables, drinking alcohol, and of course, smoking are all cancer FACTORS WE CAN CONTROL.
Can you imagine that? By watching what we eat and drink and getting in some exercise, we can not only enjoy life more, but we can also possibly live longer lives!
