The dictionary defines #inertia as ‘the tendency to do nothing or remain unchanged’.

OUCH!

It’s funny how inertia sticks to #type2 diabetics like super glue. It’s interesting how inertia always shadows us, even on days when shadows don’t normally appear.

Inertia keeps us from exercising.

Inertia keeps us from even putting on our walking (or running) shoes. Actually it keeps us from even looking from them in the first place.

Inertia keeps us on the couch.

Inertia makes sure that the only thing about our bodies that moves is our thumb as it scrolls mindlessly through our phone, reading yet another useless article on absolutely nothing.

Inertia ensures that exercise remains a theory only, not a practice.

Inertia guarantees that we talk a lot about exercise and how it helps our diabetes but not ever moving beyond talk. (to actual movement … gasp!)

Inertia places all its bets on our remaining stationary.

Stationary means ‘not moving’.

Stationary means ‘going nowhere’.

Inertia is the enemy of health.

Inertia is the foe of diabetes.

This entire blog is dedicated to those of us who hate to exercise.

We can take that first step!

We will take that first step!

Take that, inertia!
