If you believed it could be easy, would you work out? What if you knew that huffing and puffing, or jumping up and down, weren’t necessary? Exercise can be like reading- more inner than outer.
If you knew you could find time for it, even on your busiest day, would you exercise? Thirty second time intervals can be used quite effectively, at home, at work, or while traveling.
We don’t even know you, for Pete’s sake! We are preparing a book, but right now we have nothing to sell. We care about sharing our fitness knowledge with you. Our purpose is to share with you so you can grow your love, ability, and level of fitness.
In the blankness of the blogosphere, we hope the internet will deliver our message of hope and possibility- for your transformation. If you like what we do, then later perhaps we’ll be in touch with each other.
We are women- with over eighty combined years of working out under our belts. One of us is just a girl from Kansas with a fifty year workout history, obviously blessed with a love for fitness. One of us is a native New Yorker, former physique competitor, and owner of a personal training business in Northern Virginia. We’ve been friends since 1989.
To some of you our age may seem older than God. But you would never think that about any other part of who we are- body, mind, or spirit.
We can show you exercise choices that even the busiest person can find time for. Don’t argue. Accept this as truth.
If you’re just lazy about fitness, maybe it’s time to just get over it! Perhaps it’s time to tell your inner voice to shut up and work out.
Live life in a paradigm that puts the focus on good health. Everyone doesn’t need to be uber-toned. Acquiring a minimal level of fitness can be acceptable- provided the level is measurable.
Too much weight for your frame is just one of the obvious clues that your focus on your health has become blurry.
As you age, don’t worry about wrinkles: they look pretty good with muscles. Bulges aren’t as simple.
Become healthier. Do you really want America to be known for its obesity epidemic? Don’t contribute to this reputation. Don’t fall prey to the pitfalls.
Change your choices. Freedom of choice is good. Let the door swing both ways and remember your freedom to make healthy choices too!
Make healthy choices. Should you refuel your body when and where you refuel your car? Really? Gasoline is toxic and so is the food that’s sold where you buy your gas.
Choose “no label required” food, made by Mother Nature, still in its original form. Don’t stop at fresh, hot, juicy, delicious or fast. Those have become “marketing” words. That’s not the bellwether you need.
Exercise? Yes. Do it. Thirty seconds here and there throughout the day adds up significantly. There’s lots you can do in a thirty second interval. Think weight lifting. One set of any movement can be done in less than thirty seconds.
Use self-discipline. Be your own watch dog or good role model.
When you were a kid living at home you’d have been in trouble for eating more than your share of the desserts in the house. Guess what? You’re still in trouble for that same behavior- the punishment comes a few years down the road.
Healthy is happy. Fitness feels good. Don’t think living a healthy lifestyle means you need to live a life of strict observance, like a Trappist monk. You’d be mistaken.
Here’s a fabulous fantasy- what if a certain fast food hamburger chain were to do a total turn-around and start using organic free-range beef and chicken for all their sandwiches and unbleached whole grain flour to make their bread? The food would still be fast, right? Imagine the press they’d get- and how much better for America their food would be!
Maybe Uncle Sam would even create a tax benefit for such a restaurant chain, as a reward for working to reduce national health care costs and making a contribution to a healthier America.
Get fit- for goodness sake, your own sake, or for the good of America.
