There is No Excuse for Any of Us to Avoid Exercise

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Somedays I wake up and think that I do not want to exercise. I really do exercise in some form everyday. But there are days, just as today, that I did not feel like going out to a workout facility. Today I decided to go to Curves. I knew that if I did not do it, I would regret it. As I was getting ready to begin, I chatted with a lady much older than me. I said to her that I really struggled with deciding to exercise today. I have been a little depressed and just felt a bit low. The older woman said to me, "we really must take care of ourself. We have to do this." This woman who was in her 70s really taught me something today. If our older neighbors know the value of exercise, there is no excuse for any of any of us to avoid it.

    This is very true and even if you do not have time to go to the gym there are plenty of places to sneak in exercise in your day.
I have found a set of stairs at work that go to the roof so no one uses them so I can go there and make my own stair climbing workout and not worry if I go fast or slow that I will be in someone's way.
Let me tell you 10 minutes of walking briskly up and down stairs really gets the heart pumping.
So You are right I have no excuse not to exercise every day.
Thanks for keeping me on track today

    Way to push through it! That was wonderful inspiration to meet that older woman! My 75 year old Mom is my inspiration -all the stuff she does in a day would leave most people in the dust!
In the end the ones who will live to a ripe old age will be those who had taken care of themselves more often than not..

    The days when I don't feel like it are the ones I know I really need to exercise and push myself even harder to do so.
