I’ve recently made a pinky swear with the effervescent Alys from Gardening Nirvana . We made a commitment to get in better shape. I have to confess, it’s a constant battle. I’ve been up, I’ve been down and have several sizes in my closet. How do you fit exercise into your daily routine? Mr B and I generally eat pretty healthy, but we are trying to make a bigger commitment to regular exercise. Luckily, in Edmonton we have the longest expanse of parkland in North America and enjoy taking our bikes out on short tours. I met this energetic young man on our walk last night.
When I asked Christian if he was training for something, he flashed a smile and said “no, it’s just fun”. Isn’t that just awesome! Exercise CAN be fun, it’s all attitude. He’s only been doing it for 5 month’s and says it keeps him fit for rock climbing. There’s something that might be fun to try, thank’s Christian! Your enthusiasm is infectious (HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you…..and many more!)
Even if you don’t own any equipment or a membership to a posh gym, there’s lots of opportunity for fitness. I think Nike was brilliant when they coined ‘Just Do It’. It essentially comes down to just that. Whether it be a short bike ride or even a run, it all adds up.
Might it be a bit of an uphill climb? Sure, but I can’t wait to see the view from the top.
PS. A couple of related posts I found motivating:
