The 40 Days and 40 Nights of 40: Day 11

So, it's not like I don't have time to exercise, although I use that excuse often.  I know exercise makes me feel better, lengthens the quality of your life and, frankly, can make you look much better.  Why then don't we do it? 

Does exercise really hurt that bad?

It's the only thing I have yet to feel I can conquer.  As I stated earlier, I had a "to-do" list for the year I turned 40.  It included exercising daily (even yoga), but also reading something (that's not online), writing daily (check), meditatting (I'm getting better) and spending quality time with friends.  All priorities for living the good life I envision for myself.

I remember when I was 24, I had a regular workout routine.  I was fit, I felt great, had less stress and a better appetite.  What the...???  Why does it get so hard when we get older?

Here's my guess... as we get older, our metabolism slows down, and even if you eat better and less, it's hardrer to see the physical results of excercise (he says while looking down at his paunch).

What is your excuse?

Cheers - David

P.S. One week from today I leave for a four day birthday "retreat."  So no blog on 9/19 or 9/20.
