For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

It’s Not A Feeling

Today I learned something about exercise that I shared with some of the fit club members tonight. I was working and a member came in about 6:30 and said, “Oh I’m so tired but I came anyway. I so didn’t feel like coming.” I told her that’s how I will feel when my shift ends and I have to get on that elliptical for just fifteen minutes. I told her how easy it would be to just lock the door and get home for the Red Sox game, and skip it. I won’t though because I learned something about exercise today that will keep me from doing that.

This morning the doctor that did Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy was on the Queen Latifah show. She was talking about how to prevent breast cancer and exercise was a biggie. She said there are many days when she doesn’t feel like exercising, but exercise isn’t a feeling. You just get up and go do it.

I really liked that:

Exercise isn’t a feeling!

I shared that with a few people today and together we changed our perspective when it comes to those Oh I just don’t feel it times. Many mornings I don’t feel like brushing, flossing, and irrigating my teeth either. But I do it – because brushing my teeth isn’t a feeling. It just has to be done. Same goes for exercise.

And so, as another day goes by, you know what I always say: If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live? And…I have written.
