Keep Up With Exercise
This lesson was timely for me. When my mom went into the hospital i sort of put everything on the back burner. This included my exercising. I learned my lesson, I started getting those aches and pains that caused me to get moving about 9 years ago. With my body, I am applying the 'move it or lose it' quote. I need to keep moving in order to feel stronger and fitter.
The worse thing about this all is that I am fairly active during the day, meaning I am not sitting the majority of the day. Even with me doing the yard word (using a walk behind mower) and the garden word (pulling up old crops, weeding, raking, etc) I still got those aches and pains. I got on the treadmill the other morning, and lo and behold the aches went away.
This reminds me of something I said in my younger days when I was talking to someone about the need to exercise and I said that doing my job (waitress at the time) and walking for 6-8 hours is not the same as getting out there and exercising.
So, I firmly agree that exercise needs to be part of the plan that I chose to follow with my way of eating. After all, every diet now claims, "It's not a diet but a lifestyle."
