Moving is a choice

Sunday, November 10, 2013

My Spark Friend ~INDYGIRL, had a featured blog post the other day that contains this:

"Moving is a choice, it's a choice to be independent and free of mechanical devices and at least some of the crushing pain that weight gain from not moving can cause."

What a great thought. Check out her entire blog at:

I know that as I got heavier, my range of activities slowly became smaller. It happened so slowly I never really paid attention. It started hurting to run, so I stopped running. Eventually, the idea of even trying to run seemed outrageous.

I finally started to wake up when my knees started to chronically ache when I hiked. I loved hiking and I didn't want to lose that.

My knees no longer hurt when I hike, and someday I will be a runner again too.

"Moving is a choice." Thanks ~INDYGIRL
