Fitness: love it AND hate it

Being intentional about fitness and exercise has become a part of my daily and weekly routine. For the last nine years I have made an effort to exercise each week. Most weeks it is five or six days a week very rarely less. As much as this is a routine there are still many days that I dread getting out of bed and going to the gym or out for a run or bike ride. This is the hate it part…

The love itpart is knowing that being active is the right thing to do.  I know that I feel better when I get in 5 or 6  days of exercise.  I know that we are created to move and 21stcentury lifestyle does everything it can to be against intentional movement.  I know that research shows I will have fewer days of being sick, fewer days of ailments and less chance of chronic and catastrophic disease.

So even though I might hate  the thought of exercise some days, I know it is the right thing to do.
