The less you do, the less you're able to do

This is just a reminder to myself that I need to keep moving.
I didn't make time to walk at lunch, and I didn't get home from work until late, so 7:30 rolled around and all I wanted to do after dinner was sit down and relax with some Netflix.
But DH's parents and my mom are all aging, and it's so clear to me that the less they do, the less they can do. I know it hurts them to move, for various reasons, but it's hard to see them doing less and less all the time.
I don't want that to be me. I want to get in better shape, gain back some flexibility, and just keep going - even when I don't feel like it. So out I went, for a long walk in the lovely cool evening. Then I came home for a nice shower, and now I'm finally ready for a little Netflix - but I'm so happy I didn't skip my fitness minutes.
