What does healthy mean to you?

It's cold outside.  Rainy and cold.  Uggh.  It makes drinking water very difficult.  My minimum 64oz of H2O are being consumed in the form of hot tea today.  I hope that counts.

I made it to the gym this morning.  That feels like an epic accomplishment in this weather.  When all I really want to do is lay around all day, nap with Eleanor and watch reruns of Gilmore Girls, getting to the gym is a feat.  As usual, I feel so much better now that I have sweat a little.  Holly kicks our butts in Cardio Strength class.  Goes the saying- Hurts So Good.  I will be sore tomorrow. 

Lately I feel very unhealthy.  It could be the the 2 glasses of wine before bed each night, the countless Girl Scout Cookies, or the lack of motivation to get to the gym.  Either way, I am ready for a refresher.  I take forgranted that I am "healthy."  I don't eat meat (not true, I had a few pieces of chicken the other night), that makes me healthy, right?  I don't eat dairy (also not true), so that also makes me healthy right?
Have you ever heard of someone going vegetarian and then living off of peanut butter and bagels?  Well, that is where I've been these last few weeks.  It's like I mention not wanting to worry about food anymore on the blog and take that as license to eat whatever I want.  And because it is a vicious cycle, well I wind up worrying even more about food.  I want to be healthy, but unless I define what that means, I'm not sure I can get there.  So what does healthy mean?  I would love to know your thoughts.  What does "healthy" mean to you?  This is not a rhetorical question!  Please come out of the blog "closet" and leave me a note telling me how you define healthy. 

It's time to get motivated.  It's time to quit making excuses.  It's time to really live life!
