I’m just not the working out type.
Well, okay, maybe you’re not comfortable in a gym or it just bores you to death to lift a weight or to run. Maybe you tell yourself that you’re not the working out type and so you’re not the working out type.
It doesn’t matter, the why.
What matters is that you move and what matters is that you do some type of weight bearing movement as well.
Your body doesn’t care that you’re not the working out type. All it knows is that you don’t exercise or that you don’t exercise enough and it will adjust accordingly. It will get weak. You may not notice it today and you may not notice it tomorrow, but there will come a time where your very health depends on your ability to move in a productive manner.
I say, start that movement today ~ don’t wait until there is something wrong!
Change your attitude about working out. Because it’s really all about attitude, right? In fact, don’t even call it working out ~ call it play, call it fun, call it whatever you want to call it ~ but find something that you like to do that is active and do it on a regular basis.
It’s not going to kill you and it’s not going to take that much time ~ you can do it with your kids (or not) but move your body ~ exercise your muscles, pump your heart, circulate your blood..
Your body will thank you and so will your family.
