Every day you get to make that choice.

You can choose to be weak or choose to be strong.

Being weak takes no effort, but it has serious consequences down the line.

As you sit on your butt all day, your body is falling apart.

Here’s just a few ways that happens:

  • “You burn fewer calories. This makes you more likely to gain weight.
  • You may lose muscle strength and endurance, because you are not using your muscles as much
  • Your bones may get weaker and lose some mineral content”

Being strong takes work, lots of it! Plus the work has to be done consistently over the years.

I have been blessed with 70 years on this planet and I have chosen to be strong day after day. I am determined to be lifelong strong!

I did a lot of manual labor in my life and it helped make strong. Now my training keeps me strong.

My first job outside of working in a diner when I was a teen was being a mud tender for a hard-working masonry crew, like the photo above. Manual labor is a whole different world from what most people know nowadays.

I lifted, carried, pushed or pulled all kinds of heavy stuff in my construction and truck driving years.

As the years passed I decided to age ruthlessly. I refused to be weak at any age!

You have to decide every day to be weak or strong. What will you choose?
