You know when you are in the dating world, it’s not all a bed of roses. It’s work. You meet this person and that person, trying to determine who is the best for you and if they fit in with your life’s routine. Of course, if you intend to get serious and get married one day, then love, responsibility and commitment factors in too. There is a lot of adjusting and a lot of trial and error in the process, but once you find the right person you look forward to spending time with them and the search for a good fit becomes worthwhile.
As silly as it may seem, your workout is the same way. Workouts aren’t always convenient and face it, we don’t always look forward to them. It is horrible that they can become another item on your already crowded to do list. Workouts are important for all ages, but the older you get, the more crucial a workout becomes. If you are over 40 and certainly if you are over 50, then exercising for your health no longer is an option. The more you exercise though, the closer you will become to having your body turn into a fat-burning machine rather than a fat-hoarding apparatus.
This morning, while I was doing my workout, I felt very blessed that I actually enjoyed it and it actually felt invigorating to me and I felt glad to be there. Being glad to be there did not happen over night, it was an evolution of trial and error. About 7 years ago I decided to learn how to eat healthier and 5 years ago, that I began exercising again regularly. At this point, I am probably on my 5th incarnation of my workout plan.
The big goal here, is to find the workout that you love, so you will enjoy it and look forward to doing it. If your schedule is not allowing you to workout regularly, then some reevaluation is in order to find balance in your life. When you get to the point of loving your workout, then health and fitness will not only become less of a battle, it will become something that you enjoy and look forward to and being healthy and lean will just become second nature.
