We all know how important exercise is to our health. We all know we should be doing it, but we allow ourselves “outs” with what we consider justifiable excuses. You can excuse yourself out of anything if you keep listening to yourself long enough. 


I want to be healthy for a long time (for several reasons:), such as I dislike feeling or looking weak. I like to feel strong and able:). Therefore, I will do what I need to do (exercise and eat right) in order to do what I want to do (live a full life).

I ALSO want to encourage others to do what they need to do to be healthy. I want to encourage you to stay in the fight and not give into the excuses. Nike still has the best excuse-buster I can think of: Just Do It!  Does it mean getting up early even though you'd rather sleep longer? Just Do It!

Does it mean putting in a bit more effort to cook a healthy meal? Just Do It!
You name the reason why you shouldn’t do it, then just do it anyway.

It's a daily process; the fight will be on again tomorrow morning. Same time, same place. Wish me luck—no, wish me determination—and I’ll do the same for you! After all, we are in this fight together...so...Just Do It!
