Wednesday Revisit: Health First, Fashion Second


I wrote this post out of experience (as usual).  I went years spending money and much effort on the right clothes, shoes, tanning lotion, hair product, and make up in order to look how I wanted to look.  Thing is, I wanted to just look healthy.  I wanted to look fit and glowing, happy, and energetic.  So my attempts through shopping to achieve this fell flat and I went broke.  There is no substitute for the real thing.  I really think that to look healthy, we need to be healthy.

So I put more time, effort, and cash into the basics: exercise and good eating.  And what do you know, I started looking healthier and feeling better.  I used to search for the perfect jeans.  Then I ran 3 miles, 5 days a week and suddenly all jeans fit perfect and I learned I had been going about it backwards.  Now if only I could do that with my post-pregnancy body…but that’s another story entirely!

Anyway that’s what this post is about.  A gentle reminder to you and myself, that if we focus on health first and fashion second, we’ll get what it is we’re searching for.
