“Yeah, whatever”— That’s what I thought

Until He Changed Our Lives

One mile per day. That’s all.

Slow and steady tends to be unfashionable.

But it’s the tortoise — not the hare — that wins in the end.

He ignored me.

I two-stepped his dance a couple of times, but always fell back into old habits. I’d sit at the computer munching bagel chips or slip into my pajamas and grab a book while he exercised his strength — mind and body. He refused to succumb to my ice cream eating ways.

Health accounts for nine tenths of our happiness.

Nine Tenths!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know that thing we sometimes say when bad things happen — Well, at least we’ve got our health? I’m not sure how serious we actually take that — until something is wrong with our health. Why wouldn’t we do everything in our power to take care of our bodies? We only get one.

Life is movement.

For so many of us these days, life offers Get Out of Activity cards — even when we don’t want them. For the love of donuts! I can simply push a button in my vehicle and the back hatch opens and closes automatically. Sweet, but not sweet — our bodies are begging for simple movement — not necessarily marathons. It’s time we take matters into our own hands (feet, legs, arms — ooooh! and core — especially our core.)

One Mile Per Day — — — — — — — — — — — Just One Mile

You’d have to be pretty lame to not follow through on one mile. It only takes about ten minutes. It’s just one mile.

That’s scrumptiously amazing!
