"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
-World Health Organization.
I'm Marisela and I've embarked on a quest to a healthier lifestyle. Physical appearance was obviously a great contributor to my lifestyle change, but it never surpassed my need for good health and well-being; so I've lumped up all my knowledge of nutrition and fitness, applied it to my life, and have not looked back for a single moment. I now feel lighter and fitter than ever before, my complexion is clearer, my metabolism is faster, I have more energy, strength and flexibility, and my digestive tract works flawlessly (I cannot remember the last time I had a stomach ache)! So while seeing results on the outside serves as great motivation, the knowledge that you've accomplished this feat by doing something so good for your body that it could potentially extend your life, is more rewarding than fitting into your favourite jeans at the cost of your health. This life is ephemeral, so love it and live it well.
