Play like a kid!
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
When I was a kid, (that is me on the right)I rolled on the grass, climbed trees, swam like a fish, skipped because it felt good. Exercise is such an ugly word! I don't want to exercise....I want to play!
I have been thinking about it lately and I have decided that I will not do exercise that I hate. I hate running, always did, always will. But I enjoy walking. I don't just stroll, I go at a pretty good pace and I enjoy it so much.
I absolutely love to swim. I don't have a pool but every chance I get I jump in the water and play like a kid.
My plan is to move just a little more than I did yesterday....that's it, it is that simple. One step more, one more repetition of whatever exercise I am doing, just one more, movement of any kind is an improvement.
I am not able to lift heavy weights, do sit ups, or run a marathon, but I can do better than I did yesterday and that is a success for me! Most important of all is to have fun and enjoy whatever I am doing and knowing it is making my body healthier than yesterday.
