This blog could have been just as aptly titled Embracing Life. Afterall, that is what we are doing when we commit to a life of fitness. We are embracing life. Period. When we choose to nourish our bodies with healthy fuel, we are choosing life. When we say yes to an early morning workout even as our minds and our bodies protest, we are saying yes to life. When we sign up for that fitness class at the urge from a friend, we are attesting to the world that we are willing to do what it takes to make sure that we are around for our loved ones when they need us. Fitness is not an appointment that can be penciled into our day planner or a commodity that can purchased with a gym membership. It is a way of life. It is the way of life; for when we choose to embrace the fit life, we are choosing to embrace life.
