There is a quote on a poster that hangs at InCharge Fitness that states “Perseverance…what lies behind us and what lies before us is small compared to what lies within us (Ralph Waldo Emerson).” As I was running on the treadmill I thought about how exercise helps us realize what we have inside of us. When we do that extra repetition of a bicep curl or do cardio for that extra five minutes we push past a mental threshold that reminds us of the “stuff” we are made of. This is easy to forget when we are bombarded by everyday life stress. Exercise is one area of your life that you can control. It is up to you to decide to put your health and personal fitness above all else. If you put wellness first, everything you do will feel easier. I know that often, the last thing you feel you have time for is exercise. Make time for yourself, even if you only have 15 minutes, do something that gets your heart pumping. As always, HAPPY EXERCISING AND STAY CONSISTENT!
