    Just Do It

    If Freud was right and religion is a neurosis then exercise might be my religion. It is one of the few touchstones in my life that keeps things real - in an otherwise unbelievable reality. The world often feels like such a crazy, crazy snow-dome and it's all too easy to get...

    When I Exercise I Love It!

    I am a bit unpredictable when it comes to exercise - some times I exercise a lot, other times not very often at all! I love group exercise programs, where you do cardio/weights with a group of people - it helps to keep me motivated, and I work harder so that I am not...

    Change Your Mind.

    Exercise is more than crunches. You don't need a gym membership. You don't need money. You just ...do.....something.....anything, that gets you going. There are many activities out there that will tone you and burn off calories. So don't make excuses. Stand up and go do something...

    I am a very strong and fit person. I swim, run both track and cross country, play soft ball, tennis, and lift weights during the weekends. I do all of this, and yet I still don't think of myself as athletic.....

    Exercise Makes Me Happy!

    I've always been lucky in being a naturally very skinny person so I never really saw a reason to exercise, I always thought "so long as I eat healthy-ish, there's no point in exercise, I don't need to lose weight!"  but when I was diagnosed with depression, I felt exercise...

    Love It In Different Forms

    I basically just love physical activity all together, if it wasn't for being physically active I would probably be quite depressed still. The adrenaline you get going when you exercise helps to relieve stress, and helps people struggling with depression. Which I guess allows it...

    Good For the Brain As Well As the Body

    As much as I genuinely love exercising, I also need to do it as a means of keeping myself sane. I`ve had a lot of issues over the past few years with anxiety and depression, and I tell you, exercise is a safer and far more effective anti-depressant than any drug will ever be. If...

    How Many Calories Are You Burning?

    This is a cool site: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/calories.htm  You can select activities and see how many calories you will burn. One pound is equal to around 3500 calories, but it is more difficult to lose calories than to gain them, which should come as no surprise.
