50 Terrific Reasons to Exercise
For those of you who read my blogs regularly, you know I go to the local YMCA (the "Y") to work out. I love it. They have cardio machines, nautilaus, a running track, a swimming pool and all kinds of classes which are included in your monthly fee. I personally think you can't beat it. The challenge is to stay motivated to take advantage of what is available.

After the New Year we all tend to make the commitment and get back into the routine of clean living, which includes making time for exercising. Research shows this lasts for about 3 weeks. At this point we find it hard to sustain the healthy routine. This is when we need to remind ourselves why it is important to get up and move. I found this list of 50 Reasons to Exercise on a bulletin board at the "Y". I really like the list. All 50 Reasons are relevant to each of us. Some may be more motivating than others depending on our stage and state of life. Which ones resonate the most with you?

It was a real pick me up for me to see this list. It made me smile to see such a long list. It made me want to see if I could think of any other reasons that I could add to the list. So far I haven't. It is a really complete list! Can you?

I plan on printing the list out and highlighting different reasons to post various places around my home. I think I will keep one in my purse as well. We all know having a purpose is key to adopting and sustaining a healthier lifestyle. It is also true that we need reminders and motivators. Hope this will help you too.

Enjoy! And remember to Live Vibrant!
