If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today.
It’s that time of year again up where I’m at – and well past the first part of the planting season for those in the more blessed, Southern regions. So, it’s time to get in shape and again with the original full-body workout. 😆
And yeah, this year my Spring Exercise Regimen is going to extreme. Having moved from NYC where I had a small front court and a contextually large rear court to Jersey City, where I have a small front court – with goodly sized in-built planters 🙂 – and a big-ass backyard, my gardening is no longer constrained to just containers…
Let me guess, like the rat in this cartoon, you’ve repurposed any exercise equipment you’ve purchased and moved on to less strenuous pursuits – like Netflix, Gaming, and the consumption of “comfort foods.” 😉 Hell! You probably did that months ago, but I didn’t bother chiding anyone about it in early February like I normally do because adjustments in expectations had to be made due to the economic, societal, and psychological malaise brought on by the panicdemic.
With All That’s Gone On, Inspiration Is Hard To Find
I do get it. With the extended lock-downs and closures of gyms across America, combined with many people’s lingering terror of being around other people, it’s been hard to find inspiration to get and/or keep fit. It’s not like we get the positive reinforcement of seeing fine fitness babes anymore.
But, it’s not all doom and gloom. The lack of motivation to exercise combined with the dramatic increase in home culinary practices has ushered in a new era in which hard is less “in” and soft is more so than it had been previously.
It’s the very end of February – given that it’s leap year, it’s even a bit later – and you’ve probably cast your fitness resolution off by this time. So … Get back to the gym. You’re missing out on a whole lot!
If youâ€™re like many Americans, you made a News Years resolution to improve your fitness and to work out or otherwise exercise more in 2018 than you had previously. Rather than waiting till the middle of February to provide you with some motivation to help you keep at it, I’ve decided to be proactive this year.
If you’re like many Americans, you made a News Years resolution to improve your fitness and to work out or otherwise exercise more in 2014 than you had previously. It’s now February 1st, however, and if you’re once again like many Americans, you’re beginning to falter and flag in your commitment to maintain that fitness regimen.
What you need is inspiration and Reflections From A Murky Pond is here to help you with that. 😉
