YMCA Workouts, Mavens and My Oasis Business
During my Friday morning YMCA workout, a lady I know introduced me to an author I want to quote. Please understand that by quoting from this book, I am in no way inferring a relationship between Oasis LifeSciences and the authors. This is simply a very plainly stated quote that embodies exactly how I feel on the subject of ones health or the lack of it. I feel compelled to share it with you. The quote comes from the book "Body for Life, 12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength" by Bill Phillips and Michael D'Orso, published by Harper Collins, page 2.
"You simply cannot escape this reality: Your body is the epicenter of your universe. You go nowhere without it. It is truly the temple of your mind and your soul. If it is sagging, softening, and aging rapidly, other aspects of your life will soon follow suit.
I just don't believe that anyone in this world sets out on a journey to become fat and unhealthy, just as no one decides to become lonely or poor. What happens is, somewhere along the line, slowly and gradually, without even being aware of it, we give up. We give up our values and our dreams one at a time. When people let go of their bodies, it is, quite simply, the beginning of the end." By the way, the lady that gave me this book after our YMCA workout, is definately a Maven.
I'm still thankful for that one glance in the mirror that shocked me into action.
