I’m considering upping the ante on my exercise routine. I walk nearly every day, usually at least 3 miles (5k). I do pushups and crunches. Every now and then I dance for 2 hours straight. Sometimes I do a Tabata 4 Minute Workout.
I am incredibly grateful for the health I enjoy. No chronic disease. No congenital defects. But I want to get stronger. More toned. Tighter. I’m leaning towards this. I even bought a gallon jug of water tonight to use for the dumbbell rows.
Now that my time is my own, I can commit to whatever I want. And along with a peaceful soul, I want to commit to the healthiest body I can manage. Because it’s very very apparent to me that this is the only one I’m going to get. You young whippersnappers out there (who, at some level, believe you are immortal) don’t realize it yet. But it’s true. We only get one bod. And there is NOTHING else that we truly own, except this body. Everything else is borrowed, or an illusion, or irrelevant.
So yeah. Bodyweight exercises. It feels like the next thing for me.
What’s the next thing in YOUR journey to optimal health?
