Heath Time Capsule

If I challenged you today to make a Health Time Capsule that would be opened in the year 2112. What would you put in it?

What is a Time Capsule?

Time capsule

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
time capsule is a historic cache of goods or information, usually intended as a method of communication with future people and to help future archaeologistsanthropologists, or historians. Time capsules are sometimes created and buried during celebrations such as a World's Fair, a cornerstone laying for a building, or at other events.

I had to put that in, because I thought that was what a time capsule was, but wanted to make sure.

I wanted to clarify this because you know when you are growing up, you hear things from people who may or may not know what they are talking about. All of a sudden you believe what you were told and that's the way it is...right or wrong.

Just like on my health and weight loss journey. I was told, waaaaaay back, that once you are fat, you will always be fat and even if you lose the weight you'll just gain it right back. I was told this when I was really young....and I believed it!

Do you know that it was just a couple of years ago that I learned that this is not necessarily true. That with hard work and dedication, I can get this weight off and keep it off and even at my age, I can be healthy and fit! I know it's true...I have evidence of it all around me. Just look at some of our blog friends. They are doing it!!! We can too!!

So anyway, here's what I'm putting in my Health Time Capsule...

    Bet you never thought of yourself as an athlete in training before.

    I look forward to the day you open this Time Capsule.
