Use It or Lose It

I'm trying to develop a new way of thinking.
"Use it or lose it."
To me, this means that I get myself active and stay active while using my body the way it's meant to be used.
If I don't, then I literally lose it.
I lose all rights to a healthy heart.
I lose all rights to a good pair of efficient lungs.
I lose all rights to muscles that keep me going.
This doesn't happen overnight.
This takes a lifetime.

Today's Food and Activities
8 mile run (a first)
Tri-Berry Gu (before run)
Tri-Berry Gu (during run)
1 cup Kashi, 1/2 cup 1% milk
7 almonds
1 multigrain english muffin, 6 slices turkey, 1 TBS BB spread, basil, tomatoes
1 cup mangos
7 almonds
grilled chicken with veggies

I liked your post today. You are right if you don't use those muscles you will lose them. I am having a hard time building back muscles, but I am working on it.
