Maintaining Healthy Lifestyle 2

One of the most important parts of our day-to-day life is staying healthy and fit. With time people's opinion of health and fitness has greatly changed such that people have become more aware of the necessities of enduring health and have also come to appreciate the positive aspects of remaining fit. This is one of the issues that affects my family, especially my wife and I.

I never knew how unhealthy our lifestyle was after I saw our wedding picture and made us realized that in order for us to enjoy our lives together that we have to change our lifestyle. We are not those typical Filipino couple that when we get home we will have a home cooked meal on our table. It is always "where are we going to eat tonight?" We never go to the gym or do any exercises at home nor watch what we eat or do any outdoor fun activities. We used to say that were going to die anyway eventually, so why not enjoy what we love to eat while we can, but that was not a good motto in life.

We do not know anything about a balance lifestyle, nor that have we to have at least 3 out of 5 food essentials on every meal. Even though we both do not drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes. Still it does not hide the fact that we were over stuffing our mouth with foods that are fattening and unhealthy. The funny part is that we have a gym membership in one of the local gym back in California and we only end up working out for a few weeks and never came back again. We just end up paying the monthly membership and never went back anymore until we both decided to cancel it.
