One Lovely Blog Award and a Motivation to Be FitTuesday, May 12, 2009
Most mothers in my community signed-up for
2) Danskin Women’s Triathlon
3) Relay for Life in NJ and NY - Cranford
I can’t swim or ride a bike and not a really good runner at this point in my life, so I have to start working on getting my body fit. I would love to join my friends and run the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, or More Fitness Marathon and Half-Marathon (open to women 40 and up) or NYC Marathon.
But for now…
I just have to catch-up with my 8yo.
This week, my main motivation is to fit back in my summer clothes and to be able to run after my 8yo. Every day our walk/run to school, I noticed that I’ve been running out of breath. My family has a history of heart condition. My youngest is only 8 and I have to be fit and healthy to play and have fun with him.
I stumbled into Power 90 after I gave birth to my 8yo. I tried everything but this DVD fitness program worked for me. If you don’t have any fitness program, pick one and just try it and see if it will work for you.
As Tony Horton, creator of Power 90, once posted in his blog:
“Life with exercise creates a completely different journey than a life without it.
Making the time for exercise means that you're setting an intension to have a great life. Life without exercise means you're setting an intension to miss out on a better life.
The quality of your life improves with exercise and it will get worse without it. Period!
Your weight lost is a minute piece to the overall health and fitness puzzle.
Every time you exercise you improve your fitness, healthy and quality of life.
You always feel good afterward and you allow your mind and body to become less vulnerable to illness and injury.
Every day you decide NOT to exercise your health, fitness and quality of life diminishes.
You become more vulnerable to illness and injury and the energy and enthusiasm (feeling good) for a better life is not there. This is true for everyone. No exceptions.
Make a plan, stick to the plan and do it... forever! “ – As posted by Tony Horton
So I’m off my “writing” obsession and into my den to do a 40 minute Cardio-and-AB ripper workout.
What about you?
