. . . I’m going to have fun!
I do not like to exercise.
Actually that probably puts me in the middle of the majority of the world’s population.
there are things that I like to do, that I actually ENJOY, that COULD be called exercising.
Huh? I hear the teeming masses cry out in confusion?
Ah, dear readers, intrepid blog followers and the two second cuzins on my mom’s side who were forced to subscribe to my blog, well, let me elaborate.
You knowI like elaborating… giggle
Exercise – Defined – by the “book” as it were…
1. : regular or repeated use of a faculty or bodily organ
Special note… For all the guys reading this… YES, my mind immediately thought of THAT too! But somehow, I don’t think the repeated and frequent use of THAT particular organ counts… something about not lasting long enough… But hey if it works for ya… who am I to stand in the way…
So… seeking something more than a mere definition, I “googled” and found … these three articles out on the Interwebz:
- Every minute of physical activity really does count, new study shows (today.com/health)
- Do We Get Enough Exercise From Our Daily Activity? (24hourfitness.com)
- What Is Physical Activity? (nih.gov)
Which seems to indicate that ANY movement is better than NO movement! Indeed, way back in the day we actually didn’t need a special category of movement called “Exercise” because ALL movement was exercise.
You could, if you have oodles of time, read those BORING, articles but why bother when I can ‘splain thangs way better:
