(Doing what I can when I can. It’s not a fad–it’s my life.)
The question I’m most frequently asked is whether I really practice what I preach on my blog.
It seems the collective you wonder if my philosophy is something to which I actually adhere.
move. daily. something. #wycwyc. day in & out. year in & out. until death.
It seems the collective you read posts where I yammer about consistency being key and not the amount of exercise and feel called to email & lovingly inquire if that’s really what I do.
I’m here today to say/share/remind you it is what’s gotten me where I am today.
I believe in fitting exercise into our lives not fitting our *lives* around exercise.
Even if that means, as it was for me, weight-loss is slow & steady never fast & furious.
I believe fits & starts with exercise & healthy living are bad for our bodies.
They harm our physical and mental states.
I believe we need to set ourselves up for success and live TODAY as we can for life.
When we reach our goals through unrealistic means we wont be able to maintain and the resulting feelings of failure are not worth it.
I believe you should join me.
I believe you should make today the day you start to view your life through the lens of:
How might I make everything I do a little more active & a little more healthy? (hello fitness-breaks not coffee breaks! greetings pacing while on the phone!)
I believe you should make today the day you commit to doing less than you’re currently doing if your routine is one you know in your heart you cannot maintain for a lifetime.
I believe you should make today the day you join me in PLAYouts & in-the-name-of-FUN movement (and maybe…just perhaps…*skip* the gym all together).
I believe you should make today the day you join me in shouting:
BRING ON THE BUBBLE-WRAP!
