The fountain of youth is working out

Updated on August 11, 2014

No Pain, No Gain. In the end it is all worth it.

My own fountain of youth.

In my own way, I have found the "fountain of youth".

It is "exercise". Of course, eating is just as important too.

I feel so much better when I workout.

Working out isn't just good for you physically, it is good for you mentally,

and spiritually.

Well before you get all crazy, I'm not trying to push God or anything

upon anyone, just meaning the fact that it puts you in this

wonderful heavenly mood.

I think when we move, instead of just being still, it does help us.

Maybe our body is considered like a "living machine".

Just like a car, we have to fuel it and maintain it.

Now, not everyone has to workout like crazy, but

I have heard in moderation to do some exercise

is suppose to be good for you.

For me, like I said in my own personal life,

working out has always made me feel good.

Maybe I feel at my best when I'm working out.

Now as I'm older, I do feel better in my joints when I workout.

Not everyone is going to want to get the same results as

someone like myself.

I want to get a six pack.

I have been doing it without the help of a stomach operation,

with no liposuction, no steroids, and no botox.

I hear many things people do to want to "look" a certain way.

Yes, you have the money, you have every right to do what

you want with it.

You want lipo go for it or anything.

Granted I know some people, it actually saved their lives

when they got the stomach operation and I think in those

times it is important they get it done, because it

is a life or death situation and that I do agree 100 percent.

BUT, the thing is, you can take all shortcuts and pay

to have plastic surgery, liposuction, have all that done,

but think about it;

Once again like a car, you can paint the outside all

you want, but if you don't care of the engine, change

the oil, and other things, the car will just totally break

down and become "unusable".

So like a car, you got to maintain your insides because

if you don't it won't matter what your "outsides" look like.

You know how I know this?

There has time, when I slacked and let me say that

I won't eat at places at McDonald's and such because

the last time I ate something at McDonald's I got so sick

and just have refrained from eating at places like that.

It is never a guarantee what you get at fast food restaurants.

Yeah I know why they call it fast food.

It isn't just because there is drive thru and it is fast to get your

food and it cost less.

It's because once you eat fast food, it's eat to consume

and much faster to go out the other end.

Fast food acts like a "laxative" in my system.

I don't that it's good to eat something and the very next

thing within the next hour, it comes straight out of you.

I don't think that is good for your inside.

I even recently seen an experiment on youtube where

someone actually took a burger from McDonald's, put

it in a beaker and let it just sit for awhile.

They came back after a while and inside the beaker,

the hamburger had turned black with the acid.

The acid was suppose to be something close to

the acid we have in our stomach that helps to

break down foods and such.

So if you ever eaten at McDonald's and you go the

bathroom afterwards and you see blackish stuff in

the toilet, now you know why.

It was the hamburger from McDonald's.

Now I don't know, but to me if that stuff is coming out

of me, I tend to think that I just don't want to eat it

in the first place.

Also if you do workout you have to eat alot of protein

and other better nutrients.

It really isn't about counting calories but what you put

into your system.

If your allergic to flour, do you know that you still can

make pancakes without flour?

All you have to do is to take oats, eggs, throw maybe

some fruit like banana's in cook.

I make those everyday for my first breakfast.

If you want a little sweet to it, maybe peanut butter

or dark chocolate chips.

There are many things you can do to eat and

stay full and many recipes that are not that

expensive to make which will help to keep you healthy.

By the way, you don't have to be a size zero to be healthy.

Everybody's body chemistry is different from each other

so remember that.

When working out, some programs will not work for everyone.

You just have to find something that works for you.

Don't think you have to do what someone else does because

more than likely what works for someone else is not going to

work for you.

So working out, when finding your own pattern to workout

you will get use to it and more than likely once you have

that "groove" or your very own you will want to workout.

    You are correct. Even having the opportunities to speak with people that are older, especially people who are the likes of Grand Masters in Martial Arts who are 60 say how good they feel because they do.

    I hope I can inspire people that it is never too late to start :)

    You're right. The difference between the young and old is that the young are still growing. When you work out (your body or your brain), you are growing. Building more muscle cells, etc. Once you stop growing, more of your body's cells are dying than regenerating. We are like plants. We grow or die.
