As some of my readers have mentioned in their comments of recent times there are lots of excuses to be found to avoid the dreaded E word. There is always tomorrow but of course tomorrow never comes.
Hope these words inspire some of you out there who have been somewhat inactive over the years to make today the day that it all changes. Let today be the start of a new life of looking after yourself for a better you.
Sweat And Strain
Pump that iron...sweat and strain
Body beautiful...no pain...no gain
You're looking good, you've made the grade
A great new you...expenses paid
Get off that sofa...don't turn to flab
A couch potato...tardy and drab
Move those muscles there's work to do
To combat years neglecting you
How could this happen?...what chances lost?
An image forgotten at such great cost
But don't feel gloomy...there's time to find
A strength...real beauty...in body and mind
The world is full of excuses that stall
The plans and thoughts and diminish the will
It's all a breeze in comfort and ease
Luxurious leisure more able to please
The vows once pledged have faded and died
The rat race swallowing time and pride
Friends behind you...you have the know how
No time like the present...it must be now
