I heart you!

Oh, happy day of love! Did the little guy get you with his arrow? Right through the heart, you say? Good, I'm glad. Because everyone deserves extra love today, even if it's the innocent kind that comes at you from your Grandma. Like milk, love does a body good. After all, it is a matter of the heart. And the heart is one of the most essential organs within us. Which means we really need to do everything we can to keep it healthy. I could spout heart disease statistics at you, but let's be honest—you already know that heart disease is a serious issue. And the very thought of it should inspire you to do everything you can to prevent it.

So lemme ask you this: are you getting enough cardiovascular exercise to keep your heart tickin' strong? Be honest with yourself when you answer that question. Realistically speaking, you should be getting 150 to 250 minutes a week in order to improve upon your current cardiovascular health. (Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, of course.) And since today is Monday, it's the perfect day to start working toward that goal. I know, I know—but it's Valentine's Day and you've got something exciting planned with your sweetie. Or your friends. Whomever! So if you didn't want to do the treadmill, I'd completely understand. Perhaps you'll at least do the Cupid Shuffle for me? Down, down, do your dance, do your dance...

Question: Since it's the day of love, why do you love working out? And if you don't, why not?

Making time to go the gym is always difficult. I always seem to find a legitimate excuse in my head to avoid having to go exercise.

It's too cold.
It's too nice.
I ate too much at dinner.
I ate too little at dinner.
I got out of work too late.
The game is on.
I will go tomorrow.
My back is out.
It's Wednesday.
