Can Your Body Live Up to Your Will?

Last week in my Tabata/Weights class, we were talking (when we could breathe) about why we were working out. The bottom line was that we were staying in shape so that when we wanted to do something fun, like go for a hike, take a long walk, or, in the case of my friends, play with their grandchildren, our bodies could do it.

If you want to do something fun like that, can your body do it?

It seems to me that the only reason we shouldn’t be able to do something fun is because of some serious disease—certainly not just because we are lazy or out of shape. I could be wrong on this, but I hope not.

My body can do my will, and, God willing, it will be able to for a long, long time, but only if I work every day keep it healthy and ready.
