When was the last time you picked up a tennis racket?
How about riding a bike (not a Harley, but a bicycle, the one where you actually expend some energy).
When was the last time you jogged, walked fast, or climbed several flights of stairs?
Can't remember when?
Exactly! That's my point!
Stop reading this right now and do some stretches! Close your eyes, roll your head, your shoulders. Concentrate on your breathing! Ahh... it's nice detangling your body, isn't it?
Congratulations! You have just embarked on your new exercise program! Today you put in one minute, tomorrow you will do two. You'll jog three houses tomorrow, but by next month you'll go around the block. You will do one extra mailbox every day.
In the age of the "Extreme Make-over", too many people delay exercising because they don't have the time to dedicate to it. You don't need time. Just do it! Start right now!
The other day I arrived at the gym 15 minutes before closing time (my jog on the beach took too long, because it was too enchanting outside). Everyone seemed a little perplexed: "didn't I know they were closing in 15 minutes", they asked. "Yes, but 15 minutes of exercise is better than no minutes", I answered. They couldn't argue with that.
So get out there and practice your safe sets! In essence, you are buying health insurance for the rest of your life!
