Find Your Passion

This Sparked Me!

If you want to stick with an exercise plan, my advice to you is find something that you are passionate about. It may take you a while to find it, but I guarantee you will find it. I never exercised on a regular basis as an adult. I started swimming. Got up to 70 laps a day. But I didn't enjoy it. I dreaded geting in that pool. I started Zumba classes in Nov. Finally I found it! Something that excites me. I've never said this before, but I can't wait to exercise now. Zumba! My passion.

    Thank you for saying "it may take you awhile to find it". I dance to the oldies, but that is for inside. I am still seeking. This "secret" encouraged me to keep looking. Thanks.
