The world is coming to an end May 21, 2011.
That is whats been in the news and raising a big debate.
Some religious scholars are quite adamant that it is a bogus claim, while other members of the faithful are just as convinced its true and are currently preparing for their departure from earth.
So what does all this have to do with fitness and health?
I have been getting a few comments about not wanting to ‘waste time’ going to the gym or bother eating healthily this week.
There may be a point there. Not the part about working out and eating well is a waste of time, but its a good time to reevaluate your priorities.
Suppose the world really is going to end on Saturday – whats important to you?
Family, friends, laughing? What have you got on your bucket list?
I have always wanted to go hunting for deer.
Not with a rifle – but with a camera.
Imagine spending hours walking in the virgin forest.
Its beautiful in the deep woods, the air is still and the trees and short undergrowth absorb the warmth from the sun.
There’s a fellow up the road from the cottage who used to hunt, he’ll take me out.
Of course keeping in mind its spring and we will want to keep a low profile.
The bears are hungry from a long winter nap and I heard a young coyote howling last night.
Well, maybe I’ll wait a couple more weeks and go rock climbing at the indoor fitness centre instead – that’s been on my list too!
As the week progresses I will still eat healthily and keep exercising just because it feels good. But on the off chance the world will be coming to an end this weekend I have planned to be with friends.
May 21, 2011 will be spent dancing, and dancing, and dancing.
Feel the burn!
Whether you believe the world is ending 21 May, 2011 or not go ahead and schedule some fun, do something new, be with friends and family.
Yesterday is gone, tomorrow isn’t here. Today is the day we have so lets make the most of it. Eat well because it feels good. Exercise because it feels good. Dance because it feels good and laugh because it feels good.
