Let's Have Fun!

Day 28

For me, exercise is not really fun.  But… finding a hobby or activity that is physical I can enjoy while being active is fun!

I was in my early 50’s when I started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  A very physical and, for me, fun activity.

(I’m on the bottom in this pic!)

 Remember non-training training is great for us humans.  What can you find that is fun and will keep you engaged while being physical?
