Exercise, Exercise, come on everybody do your exercise! ( What is that song/saying from, I remember it from somewhere in my childhood ???)
So ladies who exercises regularly, or semi-regularly, or once a month, or who even thinks about exercising?
Thinking is at least a start!
Drums had an old college roomate who used to say, “Dude I exercise…….I drive!” Driving isn’t quite what I have in mind here, but it’s a start….I guess. 🙂
I was on quite a roll with exercising this spring, I was feeling like a fit mama, queen of the sweat, a women proud of her sweaty arm pits! But then I got this annoying Fifth Disease virus, and all exercising was crushed under the fatigue of this nasty virus.
So for all you ladies needing get out there and get moving here are 10 reasons why we should get moving.
#10 – You don’t want to look like that Wonder Women!
#9 -When you are at an outdoor christian music festival, let’s take for instance, the Creation festival, and a sudden thunderstorm creeps up in the middle of the Newsboys show. You quickly realize that you need to run at least a 1/2 mile to your vehicle to safely escape the storm, it’s very helpful at this point to be in good shape! Trust me on this one!
#8 – When your 2 year old toddler goes booking down the hallway at church thinking he is free, you can easily snag him and remind him of your Wonder Women powers!
#7 – You can hike, play ball, ride bike with your children, and actually enjoy it.
#6- Obvious reason – You can eat more chocolate
#5 – You have a new reason to get out and shop for the right exercising clothes
#4 – You feel so much better when you exercise regularly!
#3 – Exercise drives more oxygen to feed your brain, making you think quickly and clearly. Thinking clearly is very helpful when you are a mom!
#2 – And for all you young 20 and 30 something ladies, this tip is for you. I can assure you, you are NOT going to wake up some day when you are over 40 and ever feel like starting an exercise program. So do it now, and it will be a healthy habit in your 40 and 50’s.
#1- God says our bodies are a temple of the holy spirit, and we need to be good stewards of this earthly body.
