E is for Exercise and Excuses ~ April 5, 2018

E squared right there y’all.  I know I need to exercise more.  In particular, weight bearing exercise is what the doctor ordered for my osteopenia and osteoporosis.  You’d think I’d be scared by my diagnosis.  Scared straight into orthorexia.  Because I only do extremes.  This is no laughing matter.  I am serious J-Dub right now.  I am working on my tendencies for extremes in therapy if I even get another shot but that is a different post.

And for the record, I am scared silly.  I obsessively think about my bones … brittle and breaking as I sit in a molasses like state of do-nothing-ness.  Yet for some reason, I just cannot get motivated to walk. You see that is all I need to do.  Walk.  Exercise does not need to be full on cardio.

I mean look at Bob Harper.  I read recently that he had a heart attack in February of 2017.  WTH.  He is the epitome of health/work out gurus.  There was a family genetic component at play in his case but still.  That is scary.  When someone who looks fit is not underneath it all.  What is the true measure of health and wellness?

Any way, for today I am out of excuses (your today is April 5th.  My today is March something or other).  I will be walking in the drizzle.  And I will be singing as I do.  And then tomorrow, I will try again.  And the day after that.  And so on.  And so forth.

As always, more to come.
