Consistency, Consistency, Consistency!

Well, here at the end of January, most of the New Year's resolutions have worn off. The membership in the health clubs that peaks after January 1 each year starts to decline. What does this show? You can take it two ways. I prefer to put it in the positive light. Look how many people WANT to be healthier! It's just that they go about it the wrong way. If you can do it, a gym membership gives you a world of opportunities for great exercise. What we're talking about here, however, is using your muscles and burning up the calories that you eat. That's all.

Going to a gym takes time. Some people are embarrassed because of their appearance, so they try a few times, get demoralized and quit. Don't quit. Just change, if that gym or health club isn't working for you. As we've been harping on here, Ogg walked. Ogg ran. Ogg climbed. Ogg turned over rocks and logs. Ogg.................MOVED! He moved and he had limited intake of daily calories. All you have to do is simulate his lifestyle within your own boundries. If you can walk, walk. If you are able, run a bit. Climb a few flights of stairs. Pick things up. It doesn't have to be a barbell. Bend, stoop, sit on the ground, get up. These things all burn calories.

I saw two somewhat overweight people the other day taking a walk at lunch. That's what it takes. If they can be CONSISTENT, and limit their daily caloric intake, they will be healthier. If you walk 2 miles at lunch once, then decide, "Oh, that made me all sweaty, I can't do that at work", you might as well not bother. It doesn't have to be 2 miles uphill. It just has to be regular, and it has to burn up some of the calories that you take in. If you increase your energy output on a consistent basis, you will be healthier for it!
