Your Monday Fitness Inspirational! Just keep moving!!!

Tactical Athlete?  Maybe not anymore but you don't have to be a slimy bag of mush like most of the population.  Dare to be different.  Dare to get fit!

When Kate was in her mid-20s, she noticed that her beloved nana was starting to slow down and get more frail. Having heard that studies had shown that taking just a short walk a day could help the elderly stay healthy and avoid disability, and wanting Nana to stick around as long as possible, Kate often encouraged her to take regular strolls — advice which, to Kate’s frustration, she rarely took. “It’s so easy to take a short walk,” Kate would muse to me. “I wonder why she doesn’t do it?”

Fast forward a decade or so, and to another conversation between Kate and I. “Boy,” she said, “it sure seems to be getting harder to want to move rather than sit now that I’m in my 30s. I wonder if it just keeps getting harder to get up and go with every decade of your life, so that by the time you’re in your 80s, the inertia is super strong. That’s probably why Nana didn’t do her walks.”

I thought of this exchange recently when I heard about a recent study which showed that daily moderate to vigorous physical activity significantly cut the risk of mortality — even if accumulated in chunks of ten minutes or less. 
Story here.

That's the key guys!  Keep FUCKING MOVING!

Once upon a time this stuff was called learning a lifetime sport.  That's one reason why Golf as once emphasized as a sport.  It causes someone (that's doing it right) to simply get out and walk for 18 holes.

Just walking is good enough!

But forget that nonsense.  Let me talk to the bubbas on this blog.  Most of us have served.  Most of us can look back at a time when we were physical specimens, chiseled from hardened steel that would not break.

Time, age, stress...hell life takes its toll.

Knees and back are common complaints.  Rolling out of bed can be painful and I know I've been so jacked up that I sat on the edge of the bed trying to figure out how I was going to navigate to the bathroom just a few feet away.


Make working out everyday an ESSENTIAL part of your schedule!

Make eating right and avoiding fast food a requirement of your very existence!

Put away the electronics and FORCE yourself to get enough rest.

You once did it for your country.  Now you're doing it for yourself and you count too.  And if you can't do it for yourself then do it for your loved ones.

The ultimate wealth?


Get rich!  Get healthy!
