The Transformation to a Healthy Lifestyle
There is a few different ways I could improve my health this year. For example I
could utilize the gym at school or I could actually sign up at a gym closer to my home. I could also go to the park a few days out of the week and walk for thirty minutes or so. Something that would help greatly with becoming more healthy is I could stop eating fast food and junk food and instead start eating more salads, fruits, and vegetables, and also start to drink more water. Additionally I could stop eating late at night when I get home from work and I could start to simply eat the three times a day and if I want a snack make it a healthy snack.
If I were to make these changes I could benefit a lot because, I would have a healthier heart, lower risk of high blood pressure and diabetes and every other sickness that comes along with being overweight. Also I would feel better about myself emotionally, and physically. I would have a high self-esteem and
physically look better. I would have better mental health and over all feel fantastic about myself.
Some barriers that make it difficult for me to actually put these actions into play are I am full time student which means; more papers, as well as more reading then part time students. Also I am a full time employee, which means; working 40+ hours a week. If I’m not at work I am at school and vice versa. It is already difficult enough to make time to study so, trying to make time to work out would be impossible for me. Buying healthier is expensive, although I work I like
everyone else have bills of my own to pay. Changing my eating habits is a little difficult at this time.
The most recent pyramid had six vertical strips that represented the six food
groups we should be eating, along with a flight of stairs, to show us that we need to exercise with eating well. The food plate is an everyday plate divided into four sections, and a side of dairy intake we should be taking. The food pyramid doesn’t show how much of each food group we should be eating; it just shows what we should eat. I would use the food plate to remind me every day what I should be eating.
I think the best model for me would be Transtheroritical model. I am already in the preparation stage. I am also ready to start my commitment to a better healthier lifestyle like the H.B.M. I know that I will have to sacrifice but, I know that in the end the benefits of me changing my behavior will be well worth it.
