It’s never easy

Sunday's Fat Burning Workout

You’ll never hear me say that developing and maintaining a daily fitness program is easy.  It just gets easier to keep it going.  And more rewarding each time you workout, whatever you do.  Like today vs. yesterday.  Yesterday I felt like someone ran me over with a steamroller – you know the feeling. I barely made my 20 minute stretching and abs, but I made it.  Today I felt like a million bucks!  I hit the gym for an hour, then went for a 2-mile run at the Silver Lake Reservoir, then taught an 11a yoga class.  And I’m 47 and lived a party lifestyle until I gave up alcohol three years ago.  So change does happen if you really want it to.  It’s never easy, but in the case of a daily fitness routine, it’s well worth it.  So if you haven’t started one already, well let’s get going.  Because with each passing day your body is not getting any younger, or firmer, or leaner, or stronger, or more flexible without doing something. So make that something the most important 1% of your life.  See you tomorrow – R
