I know this isn’t pretty (on my phone as I post this) but I found this on the American Heart Association  basically its a.list of activities… But what I want to take away from this is the mirror fact that any activity, outside of sitting on your ass is good. 

Last night after Tae Kwon Do, my family and I went to a local school and started hitting a tennis ball against a wall… Just that simple.  It was fun and I broke another sweat running after errant balls.

We need to champion more health organization… Just a few off the top of my head.  I know there are plenty more but I could list them forever.
