I just need to say something on here instead of addressing particular people on particular threads.
You need to go to the gym or figure out some other kind of exercise. Of course, this excludes those who are not physically able to do so for various reasons.
Look, once we’re beyond our teen years, we’ll naturally go to seed and become unattractive, overweight and frumpy if we don’t do something about it. It’s going to cause problems in our relationship with our spouses, we’ll feel bad about ourselves and our better halves deserve better than that when they see us naked. Exercise causes your metabolism will speed up, you’ll actually feel better on a day to day basis (brain chems caused by exercise) and you’ll like yourself more.
Everyone says, “oh! I don’t have time!”. It’s just not an option people. So many people see staying in shape as some kind of luxury. All it takes, no joke, is 45 minutes three times a week. You need to make time for it just like you need time for prayer. Honestly, are you going to tell me that you don’t watch 45 minutes of television, three times a week or engage in some other kind of ‘down time’?
Is it okay to simply stop praying? No! Why? Because we see it as a necessity. Working out and keeping our bodies in order is a necessity just like eating and praying. Remember we’re not disembodied spirits in a shell, but that shell is part of who we are and hence we say “I believe… in the resurrection of the body”
I would guess that many marital problems would disappear if both made working out and keeping in shape a part of their lives. Stop being lazy. No pain no gain.
