Janet and I have always been aware and concerned about our physical fitness … healthy food, walks together or working out in our basement mini-gym, yearly physicals at the doctors and just being aware and making our health a priority. But lots of travel and busy-ness takes its toll. So during this virus shutdown we reemphasized this aspect of our lives.

A friend just wrote about he saw some good rotund Catholic guys and they made him feel better. “Steve and Janet make me feel guilty with their ‘boot camp’ lifestyle.” He said he doesn’t feel so fat and unhealthy around those good ‘ol boys.

I wrote back,

Those guys are still young and don’t realize that you have to be physically fit as well as spiritually fit. Don’t take care of your body and your soul suffers too. They will realize this after they get a bit older and have health issues like a heart attack, a stroke, diabetes II or other impending health problems caused by neglect.

Our bodies will get the attention they require one way or the other — either by the person’s choice and timing or by the body’s choice and timing. You choose to change your lifestyle habits on your schedule, or your body will shut you down and do it for you when you least expect it.
St. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 9:27, “I discipline my body and keep it under control.”  Youth has its adnvantages and disadvantages; but then again, age does too.  Our lifestyle can catch up to us faster than we realize.
