Always Time to Exercise
Always Time to Exercise
01/15/2019


Dr. Laura,

For me personally, exercise is easy to fit into my schedule because it's my job!! I'm a personal trainer, Zumba instructor, corporate trainer, etc. So I get paid to work out, so to speak. However, I am the one who hears all the excuses, "I don't have time to work out!" or "I'm too tired after work to go to the gym!" or "I have to help my kids with their homework, soccer, piano, fill in the blank." or (my very favorite!) "I don't like to sweat!!"

To which I say....BALONEY!!!!

I am a single mom, widowed, raising two children, am in the best shape I've ever been in, and I'm about to turn fifty. Am I this way because I am vain and trying to snag a man? Absolutely not!! I don't even date. I'm trying to stay in the best shape for my own health, for my business, but also so I can be around to raise my children and enjoy my grandchildren. If you want fitness badly enough, there is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, a time to exercise. When I was a coach and taught school, I would wake up at 5am and run 6 miles before work. It helped me start my day with a smile and lots of energy.

I am heartbroken at the state of our country and the way so many people mistreat their bodies. What they don't realize is the more they gain, the more they are destroying their bodies. Food is their poison, their drug. Nobody wants to say that because it might offend them, but it's the truth.

I love and respect your position on fitness and healthy eating and thank you for speaking the truth!! You are a role model to me and I plan to be running up mountains in 15 years just like you!!

God bless you! You have filled an enormous gap in my life since my mama died this past year. Your straight talk, no-nonsense approach is how she raised me. I'm forever grateful that I found you!!

Your forever fan and almost daughter -

Kelli
