Stuck in the same ole thing, People tend to get stuck in the same routine, They go to work, come home, eat whatever is quick, lay down and watch TV then get up and do the same thing all over again. They ask themselves why my joints ache so much. Why do I have to take all these pills? Then they come back with all these excuses, no time, stress at work, too old, too out of shape. You cannot change anything by just sitting on the couch and watching TV. You must get moving.
Change is never an easy thing and commitment seems even harder. The key is to just start. Start small, walk, one kickboxing class a week and then build up. The pain and aches in your body is your body telling you that you are destroying it. The old saying is true you are what you eat but you are also what you do about it. If you think you are too tired to start exercising then you are wrong. Exercising pumps you up and more and more will give you more energy. My own children can’t keep up with me now. It can be difficult to start alone but in reality you’re not alone there is care and support from everyone around you trying to achieve the same goals.
However exercising should not be the only change, changing your eating habits is crucial to getting healthy and fit. Allow yourself to have small changes at first like stopping sodas, then breads, chips, and sweets. Treat yourself one day a week, and starting off have that one thing you crave, like chips or sweets, however just have a palm full of chips or one piece of chocolate. I know what I am saying may be sound nuts but trust me once your body is detoxed from all the bad foods it will crave the healthy foods. Think of it like your body is a gasoline car. If you put diesel fuel in the gas tank instead of regular gasoline what happens is it tears up your car and you have to spend money to fix it. Well the same thing applies to your body. You put lots of grease, fat, bad carbohydrates and sugars in your body it in a way breaks it then you have to spend money on medicine to try to fix it. Ask yourself what you would rather have to do, spend lots of money on medicine that may or may not work, or change your outlook, change your behavior, start exercising and eating right. I know that once you start treating your body right then your body will start acting right. Your body will slow get fit and tone but more important it will give you more energy, less pain, more ability to spend time with friends, family, and even grandchildren. Stop tearing up your body, stop putting the wrong fuel in your body and exercise; get fit! It’s never too late to make that change. Get up and get moving!
