Can anyone tell me why people refuse to take care of themselves? I mean really tell me. Give me a good answer that I will accept and find no holes in. Because I simply cannot understand why people refuse to make choices that keep them healthy. I'm specifically thinking about diet. I heard on the news this morning that Chicago Public Schools have a whole new diet plan going into effect next year, removing this and that and adding a bunch of healthy stuff. Now don't get me wrong, I think its great that they're doing this, but seriously? Why was the menu so bad to begin with? That's what I want to know.

Everyday there are reports about rising obesity levels and all the heath problems that go with that. People, c'mon. Eating well is not that hard, and its really delicious and rewarding and makes you feel great. How is that bad? Is it easier to drive thru and grab a burger? Sometimes, yes. But is it worth it to wait until you get somewhere where you can make a better choice and actually feed your body? Yes, yes, yes. So where is the disconnect? Why aren't people doing this? Are we really that taken in by fancy advertising?

I know I'm a lucky skinny person, and for that I am thankful. But there's alot of thought that goes into what I put in my mouth, whatever it is. I have my own reasons for the choices I make, and I don't like to regret eating something. I like to enjoy it. Mostly I like my body to enjoy it. I like to feel good, have energy, keep going. So tell me, what's going on out there people? I just don't get it.
