Mantra Monday

"Physical Activity is Not an Option"
that is the Mantra I've adopted for 2010. A few months back I was listening to a very interesting podcast on FitnessRocks.org and Dr. Monte was talking about the current state of health in our Country. He referenced a study which talked about how in days past our "Food was scarce and physical activity was not an option" If you wanted to survive you had to physically work, hunt, gather, garden, etc. so that you would have enough to eat. Now "Food is plentiful and physical activity is scarce" The only necessary movement is to stretch out your left arm and grab the drive through meal. So when I am looking for motivation to get moving I remind myself...Physical Activity is Not an Option...
