E is for Existence thru’ Exercise (by Cynthia Rovero)

For this year's A-Z Challenge, I am organising my writing group's participation for the first time. So I am posting each entry here as well as on the website, Write On, Mamas! who are a writing group based in the San Francisco North Bay area. We will have 25 Mamas and one Papa writing on a different letter of the alphabet during the A-Z Blog Challenge. Comments are always so appreciated, but would be lovely if you would comment on the Write On, Mamas! blog so the author will read your comment. Thanks and look forward to reading your blogs.

One day an image crosses the television screen of your dream body. You look at yourself in horror and wish for a miracle cure that can give you the same sexy allure. Having tried all kinds of touted miracle cures, I have decided to live with a much simpler solution, such as shutting my mouth when that extra helping is staring at me in the face. I also push myself out the door to join in with the many feel-good exercises. In doing so, I find myself losing weight, feeling sexier and, best of all, enjoying better health.

The epitome of learning to enjoy what I have is celebrated exponentially with every new step I take in this direction. Yes, there are pitfalls to trying to maintain a positive outlook within a mass media society. Still, for my health the choice to continue on this path of eating veggies more and junk food less works. Also, continuing to go out into the world, where I can enjoy the physical exertion of bike riding, swimming, and walking is a huge plus. Most of all I adore the look on my hubby’s face when my healthier attitude pays off in weight loss. Then, I too beam with pride at how far I have come from giving in to unhealthy temptations.

Cynthia has enjoyed creative writing for 30 years. Over the years she took writing classes to hone her skills. Sharing her thoughts has helped to keep her fulfilled in life.

    great E post

  2. Healthy eating I do too, exercise when/if I can, but will hopefully get there again soon.

  3. Eat healthy and less and exercise more - works every time.

  4. I go with Alex's comment...

    He's the man!

    All the Best with the rest of the challenge.
