What is YOUR healthy?

MizFit’s latest blog post from yesterday got me thinking. (I’m sorry, I’m at work . . . I didn’t listen/watch the video. I’ll try to when I get home. Promise! Or . . . sometime this week.)

How do you define HEALTH?

Is it merely the absence of disease or, as it is for me, is it so much more?

Prior to my thyroid going south about 2 1/2 years ago, I would be considered healthy by that definition. Despite having no real method of exercise (or exercising at all, unless you count climbing 3 flights of stairs to get up to my apartment exercise) and eating total crap, I could be considered healthy by that definition. But I wasn’t. (I knew I wasn’t. I knew I needed to get myself in better shape.)

Now. 2 1/2 years later. I am heavier than I was then, by at least 25 pounds. But I’m stronger than I was, my endurance is better (not much, but it’s better) and I’m mentally (most days) better off than I was then. Mentally stronger and far more confident all the way around.

So, MizFit ma’m. I have to respectfully disagree with you. My most common standards, I’m not healthy, but from where I was . . . I’m far healthier now.

(I did have more to talk about . . . but I’ve forgotten it. So, I’m back to work and if I remember . . . I’ll let you know.)

  1. The mental part is huge. When I was at my fittest with the lowest percent body fat I’ve ever been, my mind was NOT healthy. Now I’ve gained 10 extra pounds but my mind is in a much better place. I’d say that I’m healthier now than I used to be. It’s very interesting when you start looking at the different TYPES of health.
