It's YOU vs. YOU



What a gift each day is! And working out shouldn’t be an hour of your day that you dread or an hour of your day that for some people doesn’t exist! Thats right. Most people reading this blog already workout but I don’t guess I ever realized how many people in this world do NOTHING but what is required of them on a daily basis. Example: getting up and getting ready, working at their job, maybe doing some laundry, cleaning, or yard work…i’m sorry but people who say “I don’t need to workout because I do enough around my house”, I call “FOUL!” Your body is used to your everyday routines and with modern day conveniences of washing machines, dishwashers, vacuums, and riding lawn mowers that turn at a 0 degree radius (thats not work. thats just fun) that excuse doesn’t fly with me. Maybe back when my great grandmother did housework I might accept that. I’ve been working for a physical therapist for 2 years now and do you know why most people in our office have back and neck issues? Because they don’t use them. Their muscles are so weak and stiff because they never move, and half complain when you want them to actually do something. “oh i just want my stretch, massage, and ice and i’ll be on my way.” Hmmm, well you can’t take the massage and stretch with you when you go home. You have to strengthen your muscles to prevent this injury from happening again, and when you are released from physical therapy you need to keep exercising and strengthening so you don’t lose it. 

Working out should be a privilege. I’ve seen a woman in the gym with one hand and she put a cuff around her arm so she could do cable curls. AWESOME!!!!!! The body is the most wonderful machine God ever made and He also gave us the tools to take care of it. Why wouldn’t you want a stronger more sufficient working body? There are too many benefits to even start naming them. You give regular maintenance to your car, right? Why? Because if you didn’t it would break down. Well, same goes for your body! I see it happen every day.

Aren’t you worth spending 30 dollars a month on for a gym membership? Or are your kids/grandkids worth that, so you can keep playing with them, and LIVE to see them grow up? Or like me, I just want to LIVE! This life is so wonderful and I want to enjoy every single minute of it without restricitions. I don’t care what your choice of strength training is…lifting in a global gym, kettlebell training, crossfit, kickboxing, etc. There isn’t one right!!!!! And for you people who think there is one right, well, I hate to say this…wait, no I dont, YOU’RE WRONG (haha. That felt good)! Find a way to strengthen your body that you enjoy, that you will stick to. I promise…You. Are. Worth. It. 

Proverbs 31:17 “She dresses herself in strength and makes her arms strong.” If the bible says “she” does it, then you fellers better be doing it too. You don’t wanna be shown up by a girl. Its embarrassing. 😉
