No more excuses

I will never understand why people make excuses not to exercise. You are given 1 body in this life, you will have no other chance so why not take care of it? I hear people all the time say, "I dont have time to exercise", "it's too hard", etc. You dont have time to exercise but you have time to sit on your butt and watch TV from 8-11 at night! Why not go out and take a 30 minute walk? Do jumping jacks on commercials or pushups, or squats, etc. Park farther from the store when you go shopping instead of driving around for 15 minute to get a closer spot. Take the stairs not the elevator. Play with your kids in the yard. Take the family on a bike ride. There are so many ways to add fitness into your day. Stop making excuses! I always remember that my children are watching me. I am setting an example to them of the importance of exercise and taking care of their bodies. I want them to grow up knowing that exercise is a normal part of daily life just like brushing your teeth.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly. Even when I wasn't eating right this past spring, I was still working out (not as much as I am now, but I didn't totally give it up). I've told you before how much of an example to ME you've been too and I'm thankful for that. :) I also like that my kids see me doing it so that I can be an example.
