Lose Weight, Get Fit, Tone Up
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is announcing that you are going to begin a workout program. The sad part is, most don’t ever follow through and actually do it. Adding a physical fitness program to your weekly routine could deliver so many benefits for you. Yet if history and the odds are correct, there is a high likelihood that you either will work out a few times the quite or never start at all.
Let me be clear here. There are so many benefits you could get from a great workout routine. I really want to encourage you to get off the proverbial couch and follow through. People who workout tend to experience improvements in cardiovascular fitness levels. They generally lose weight. Assuming they include weight training in their workouts, most also see an increased level of muscle tone.
Do you have a tough job? If so, you aren’t alone. The vast majority of jobs out there are ultra competitive. To succeed, you need to devote a ton of time and energy. The one caution is this. You are no good to anyone in your corporation or in your family if you allow yourself to get sick. One of the best ways to avoid the dangers of all work and no play is to include a regular workout routine in your schedule. Most of us can find a thousand excuses for why we just can’t carve out the time to exercise. For those of you who fall into this category, save some time in your future calendars to deal with increased risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, obesity and more.
Remember this rule, “We are no good to anyone if we allow ourselves to get sick.” I realize that even people who workout get sick. That is not the point of the discussion here. The main point I want you to understand is that people who exercise statistically get sick less often. My personal goal has never been to live longer than others. My goal has been to stay physically fit. God blessed me with healthy mind and body. I want to do all that I can to enhance what God has provided. Doing so requires that I make the most of each and every day. For me to feel like I made the most of my time here, I have to workout. It is just a part of my DNA. It is simple really. I want to live life to the fullest.
I suppose that I could just focus on myself, but, I am just not wired that way. In my mind, we all need to find a way to do God’s work. For me, I see is as part of my mission to help change the lives of those in need. Every person I meet is different. My goal is never to fit all these pegs into the same round or square hole. My goal is to find a way to encourage those I meet. Perhaps teach them to rejoice in the world God has created for us. One great way for me to help out is to encourage them to exercise. Not only encourage them, but, to show them how to actually perform the exercise and to achieve their goals.
I hope that I meet you this year. If you are looking for someone who will truly help you and be in your corner, I encourage you to come by and talk to me. Together we can move you towards your goal of improved health and fitness.
