Fitness is a CHOICE!

                         "Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task." ~William James

I'm sitting here, just after a 3mile jog (jogged 2, walked 1). I am no longer in shape, not the shape that I used to be in when I was, well younger. That is no excuse for sitting in my comfy chair, using the excuse that I won't ever have the 25 year old energy back. IT is NOT. I'm using this space today to try and explain exactly how this middle-ager is feeling not 2 minutes after the jog.

Sweaty, this qualifies as "sweat" not "perspiration" heart rate is elevated, legs are tinging, and the cold air breathed in gives that strange taste....

Besides that, I FEEL FANTASTIC! My energy is elevated, my focus for the day seems ordered, and I strangely wish to do it again :) Not for calories burned, although that would be great too, but for the way it makes me feel.

It didn't take me long to fit it in. More thought put into it, than the actual jog itself. Join us on the Facebook page and share your jogging /exercise routine or jot it down here in the blog comments.

Note* I did go to the doctor to be sure I was clear to exercise, it would be a great idea to do that if you haven't :)


  1. It most definitely is a choice - I have such a hard time getting myself to the gym, but then I love the way I feel. So virtuous & high on life. :-)

    Nice work on your run!

  2. Thank you! It is so hard to get out the door for a work out. Once we are doing it , it sure feels great! Hope you are making out okay with your routine too :)

  3. So proud of you!! :) I haven't been "intentionally"exercising lately, but when I do, I feel great! Keep it up!!!
