Remember Playing?

Staying out all day, just running, tumbling, playing make believe with your friends and living out your fantasies. Never ever getting tired, or if you did you sure as Hell wouldn't mention to your parents.

Seems to many kids nowadays think they have to be entertained 24/7. If they're not being entertained, they're bored even though they have toys out the ying yang.

I've tried to make sure mine goes out everyday during the summer.Sometimes he bitches and moans but I get him outside and before long, he forgets he never wanted to out in the first place.

Then we grow up and the playing stops. Yet we continue eating like we have the metabolism of a teenager. Ten years later we're wondering why we huff and puff walking up the stairs. Why we've put on 15 to 25 pounds and why parts of us wiggle when we are standing still.

So lets get back to playing. Let's run like we did when we were 8 years old. Let's eat when we are actually hungry, not because we're bored.

Working out doesn't have to be so boring if you start thinking like a kid, it can be something fun. Otherwise we might all look like grown up versions of Augustus
