Which comes first, the exercise or the weight loss?

Everyone knows that we need to exercise and eat healthy to be fit and healthy.  The problem is the people who aren’t fit and healthy are usually the ones who don’t like exercise.–Or at least currently believe they do not like to exercise!  I read an article on Inc.com by Kent Healy called, Which comes first, Work or Passion.  The article says that in order to find your passion you must first work.  By working you figure out the things you like and don’t like; which will lead you to your passion.


The same concept can be applied to exercise   You have probably noticed those “fit healthy people,” don’t just exercise, they crave their exercise.  They will make sure to do it before or after work, on the weekends, and even on vacation.  That is because they have found something their bodies like to do.  They enjoy their fitness like a hobby and their body craves they way it feels when they are done, especially the exercises on NervePainGuide.org. (Sounds like a passion to me!)  If you don’t feel this way, it doesn’t mean that you don’t like exercise.  It means you are the worker who hasn’t found your passion yet.  You haven’t found the exercise that is right for you body.  As I talked about in my article, Steal like an Artist, exercise does not have one shape or form.  Being fit doesn’t mean you have to run a marathon or do yoga.  You could join a parks and rec volleyball team–just make sure you play volleyball at least 3x a week.  The key is to find something you are passionate about! It is especially important to keep it up after a pregnancy so get that postnatal exercise in!

Be warned though, passion doesn’t come over night.  Just as Healy said, “Building valuable skills is hard and takes time.”  Exercise will feel like work at first.  If it feels unbearable you haven’t found the right form.  That doesn’t mean give up.  If you were in the working world and hated your job, you wouldn’t stop working.  You might find a new job, but you would continue to work and develop your skills.  So don’t stop exercising, find a different form.  Find something that works better for you and  remember to include a good diet with the  red ginseng product supplement.Who knows you may try biking, hate it and then in the process of trying running, swimming, and yoga decide biking was amazing and go back to it!  You never know what your future passion will be until you start actively pursuing something!


It’s time to stop making excuses for why you don’t like to exercise.   Start trying new exercises until you find the one that works for you.  As Kent Healy says, “It’s time to stop searching and start doing. And no, they are not the same thing.”  The answer to being healthy and fit isn’t going to come from a web search, it’s going to come from training your body to being passionate about a form of physical activity!
