What is it they say, oh yeah, no pain no gain! What the heck's that all about. I mean, why should we have to endure regular pain and discomfort just to look physically normal. Why can't we just go about our daily business doing what we do and stay in relatively good shape? Well, to put it bluntly, many of us abuse our bodies. That's the long and short of it anyway. We lounge around and stuff our faces with all the harmful junk and convenience foods we can get our greedy little mitts on then wonder how we've gotten so chubby.
This, my friends, is why we need to embark on a physical exercise training program. To a greater or lesser degree, most folks as they get older become less active. Some call it 'taking it easy' whereas others give it a name like retirement, but whatever your reasons, it all amounts to one thing and one thing only, which is procrastination. If you've fallen ill and can't physically move around for medical reasons then that's a different story and this article will be of little use to you. But for all you armchair complainers out there, you should be grateful you still have all your bodily functions, and while you have the ability to move then move you must.
Unless you're looking for a premature death I suggest you get into an exercise training program while you still can. Look, everyone is different, but there is one thing that's the same for all of us and that is there's an exercise training program out there for everyone. Whether you're clinically obese, or just need to shed a few pounds, I can guarantee you one thing; put more of the right kinds of grub down your gullet and take the dog for a good walk every evening and you will notice a difference. You'll not only start to look better you'll begin to feel great too, and that's a promise! What! Don't have a dog? Well walk somebody else's pooch then. Honestly, these are typical comments from idle folks, always looking for a get-out clause. Depending on who you are, how out of shape you are, and your personal circumstances, are all factors which will determine what kind of exercise training program you set yourself.
It costs nothing for simple basic exercise, but if you need a little kick start to get you going, and let's face it, who doesn't!, then it's probably a good idea to either buddy up with someone and support each other through your fitness regime, or join a local gym and have a professional trainer set an exercise program that is right for you. Listen, right sized people have more energy full stop. They also get sick less often, sleep better, and wake up refreshed. Oh, and did I mention they live longer too? If you can think of one good reason why slouching heavily into an armchair and cramming all sorts of the 'wrong foods' into your eager mouth day in day out as viable option to wellbeing, then good luck to you.
If you want to feel healthier and be able to look into the mirror with glee, then get your flipping act together and start on an exercise training program today. There are no magical cures out there, or wonder pills, nor will there ever be, so I wouldn't sit around too long waiting for such. You need to simply take a good hard look at yourself and repeat the words; If it's to be it's up to me! You can do it but you have to work at it and follow through. Remember, today is the very first day of the rest of your life. Make it a good day, a day of change and personal improvement.
