According to all the media gurus out there, I need to be posting at least twice a week. The trouble with that is, there’s only a limited amount of things you can say about any given subject, such as massage, without becoming redundant. So, reaching into my bag of “subjects to talk about,” I came up with National Physical Fitness and Sports month. Bet you didn’t know there was even such a thing, did you? Well, yes there is! And coincidentally, it falls in May.
National Physical Fitness and Sports Month
I think that some time this month, I will endeavor to find a way to become more fit. I used to be VERY fit 5 or 6 years ago. Lately, though, life has been emotional and stressful and, like a lot of people out there, I have turned to food for comfort. “Food” being a relative term. It’s edible, but not necessarily good for you, especially in large quantities.
Lack of proper nutrition, of course, leads to depression. Is it any wonder that there are so many depressed people out there these days? We are a nation addicted to foods that are not feeding our brains. Depression leads to lethargy, which leads to “I think I’ll skip going to the gym today.” Which leads to guilt, which leads to more eating.
It’s time to get off the hamster wheel and get on the treadmill. I think I’ll go find a trainer or someone who can exercise with me and hold me accountable before the seam in my jeans gives way. Some exercise and healthy eating is definitely called for here.
Won’t you join me?
And I’d better schedule a massage while I’m at it. I have a feeling I’m going to need it.
