I wrote the post below 2 years ago. It showed up on my Facebook “On This Day” feed today. I usually don’t pay much attention to the posts that show up “On This Day.” I like the pictures but as I sometimes tend to be mouthy, reading my old posts sometimes make me wince. Plus, the past is the past. I’m not one to spend much time in the past.

This post, however, only made me wince a little (I’m really trying to use less !!!) I like what I said, even if it’s a little over-exuberant. I need to be reminded of how excited I can be about exercising and how good it makes me feel. I don’t always feel that way. A reminder of my passion is a good thing. So, here it is. I hope it inspires, rekindles or jump-starts a passion in you. And it’s short. Thanks for reading…

I LOVE exercising! I missed yesterday because of this stupid head cold but forced myself to go this morning. So glad I did. If you don’t exercise now, please consider starting! Whatever your challenges are–time, money, physical limitations, etc. Find something that is do-able for you and make it happen. There are a lot of options (walking, chair exercise, DVD’s, apps, classes, etc.) Getting started is not easy (believe me, I know!) Force yourself at first. It WILL pay off. At some point the endorphins will kick in & you will feel great, physically, mentally & emotionally! As Nike says: “Just do it!”

P.S. It all still applies. (Purposely refraining from ending with !!!)
