E is for Exercise

April 6, 2016


It’s true. I’m a fan of exercise.

One of the cruel truths of getting older is that almost every ailment can be cured–or at least improved–by changing your diet and exercising. I was having pretty bad stomach issues for a while, and the only thing that really helped was exercising. Whenever my stomach got upset, I would go to the pool (water aerobics, baby!) and when the class was over, I felt better. Every single time.

I mean, I hate Zumba, but course prep had me SO STRESSED OUT that I went to a Zumba class. And it helped.

So now that I think of exercise as a form of therapy, I am much more amenable to it.

So yeah. I’m a fan.

      I think the problem is the name, really. When I was a kid, I used to exercise all the time–only it was called dance class and playing.
