Every once and awhile we find ourselves in a place where we wonder how we got there. I haven't been trying to avoid being healthy, but I certainly haven't been embracing it either.
Today I noticed that my knees were a bit achy. The ache is a reminder that I am not 19 any more and when I don't workout, my body will remind me of this. For me, when I don't work out, I slowly gain weight. Mostly, because I like to eat. Working out daily and eating the way I do balance each other out. Take away the exercise and eat a little sloppy in regards to good choices, and the weight returns, quickly.
Lately, I have been using the exercise excuse that is as old as the existence of stationary bikes.
"I am just too busy to workout tonight."
Honestly, I'm too busy for my health? Really? Shouldn't that be a priority? If we don't make it a priority, our body will certainly make our health a priority when it's taken away. Health is never more precious than when you aren't in possession of it. My knees are reminding me daily of this important fact. I must put working out back into my schedule.
