Exercise and Gym Work, It’s Not Hard

Many people complain about exercising. They say that it is too hard. That getting up half an hour earlier in the morning to go to the gym or exercise at home is hard to do. But the harsh reality is, in any language, it’s not hard.

So let’s think about the ‘it’s too hard’ excuse for a few minutes.

A solider fighting in a foreign land to protect our freedom and way of life, that’s hard.

Someone fighting a drug addiction and trying to get clean, that’s hard.

Someone fighting cancer and going through radiation and chemo, that’s hard.

Losing a child, that’s hard.

Exercising, getting up a half hour earlier, that’s not hard.

Look, like many of you I to hate getting up earlier to exercise but I know that if I don’t I will not feel as good as I should be feeling, as good as I can feel if I put a little effort into it. Do yourself a favor, have that cup of Joe and a protein bar and push yourself to do the thing you know you should be doing.

It’s easier if you have someone to push you, but some of us do not have someone who is trying as hard or as motivated as you are. If you don’t live with someone who can push you, convince a friend to join you. You can go for an early morning walk together.

You can do this, it’s not hard.  Get in the car and go to the gym. Because it’s not hard.

Other things that are not hard that will benefit your health:

Giving up that bowl of ice cream that’s not hard, have some fruit instead.

Giving up those cookies or that piece of cake that’s not hard, have some nuts instead.

Giving up the soda that’s not hard, have a nice refreshing, cold glass of water.

You get the idea, treat your mind and body as if it’s all you got and it will take care of you. Because if you have your health, you have everything.

We hope you are motivated to get active!  And thank you for visiting us!
