Work Out Wednesday-Final Edition

I started Work Out Wednesdays because I wanted to write a blog on exercising.  I found I had so much to say on the subject, that I needed to write several blogs, not just one or two.  I realized this morning, I have said most of the things I wanted to say about exercising.  So far now, I am retiring Work Out Wednesdays. 
But I wanted to conclude this blog series with a few thoughts to wrap up my lessons learned.  Here they are:

  • I have CF.  I do not use the illness as an excuse, I use it as motivation.  One of the first things I learned about this illness is how important it is to exercise. It reminds me to do my best.
  • When I am sick, or tired, or just not feeling "it", I give myself a break.  It is ok to give myself a day off.  Pushing myself beyond my limits will only make things worse.
  • Staying active is key.  I try to find things I like to do to stay active.  I like to switch it up every now and then to keep things interesting and prevent my routine from getting boring. 

I am sure there will be other exercises posts from time to time. But for now, be active, stay positive, and take the best care of yourself that you can achieve. 




  1. I loved "Work Out Wednesday's"!!!

  2. I'm okay with this so long as you're not retiring from working out!
