Contrary to how I felt after my TRX workout Monday, I don’t believe exercise has to hurt to be beneficial. Honestly! I suggest before you put on your jogging suit and shoes to workout, you read some of these exercise jokes:
Q: What do you get if you run in front of a car? A: Tired! Q: What do you get if you run behind a car? A: Exhausted!
Need exercise? Yoga class is great. You can close your eyes and imagine yourself in a relaxing place. Like on your couch not doing Yoga. (I love that one!)
You know that you’re out of shape when you can’t pull supermarket shopping carts apart. I needed exercise.
So, a long time ago I joined a health club on an exercise special, I spent about $19 every month and haven’t lost an inch. Apparently you have to show up. Why didn’t somebody tell me that?
Before long I quickly realized I prefer sit-ups to jumping jacks. At least I get to lie down after each one.
One last thought: Don’t forget, your brain needs exercise, too. So, spend lots of time lying down thinking up excuses for not working with your therapist.
Now that you’re rested, get your shoes on and more your body!
