Exercise: Just Get Up and Do Something

Exercise: Just Get Up and Do Something

Do you get enough exercise?

It’s a simple “yes”, or “no” response. You either do, or you don’t.

But why?

If you’re like many people, exercise is kind of like taking out the trash. You know you need to do it, but you’ll pretty much do whatever you can to avoid doing it… for as long as possible.

So what is it? What is it that keeps you from getting up and doing something about it?

“I just don’t have the time…no energy…I don’t have the right clothes to wear… it’s boring, too hard…?” No worries, you’re not alone. Everyone has used those same excuses before, and sadly many always will.

But unlike taking out the trash, getting enough exercise is something that only you can do. It may be an unpleasant task, but it’s not one that you can ever delegate to someone else.

Despite all of your excuses, you are responsible for your actions (or lack thereof).

It’s your body, your mind, your health. Nobody can change it accept you.

So maybe it’s time to change your focus from “what’s stopping you” to “why” you need to get up and do something about it.


It’s painfully obvious that exercise, along with a proper diet, is key to getting healthy… and staying that way.

Nothing new there. Heard it. Read it. Could write a book about it, right?

So there’s just got to be something more inspirational…some reason that will make you feel so compelled to exercise and get healthy, that you’ll actually start looking forward to doing it… and to keep on doing it!

Experts agree that making exercise a permanent part of your lifestyle can lead to big changes in improving your daily habits and achieving your personal goals of losing weight and getting healthy.

“Sometimes a new thought or a new idea is all you need to make a lasting change. You can wake up one day and decide to make your entire life change. Most likely what motivates you runs much deeper than getting skinnier or being a specific set of three numbers on a scale.” [Read more about 12 Steps to make exercising a lasting change]
