Welcome to Wednesday Word, a weekly linkup for everyone, not just health and fitness bloggers. Each Wednesday you will have a single word prompt to write about.  Let your imagination run free and share with your readers your interpretation of that word, or simply use it as inspiration for your post. Today’s word is energetic…..  I’d love to have you link up, and if you do, please remember to follow my six simple rules.


Energetic – having or showing a lot of energy
~ Merriam-Webster


My friends call me the Energizer Bunny, and that’s exactly what my friend Bob wrote when he signed this Cruisers’ picture presented to me a few years ago.



In reality though, I have two switches – on and off. I can get more done in one day than most people can get done in a week; or, I can flop on the sofa and wile away an afternoon watching college football or a Fixer Upper marathon…



When thinking of runners being energetic, I wonder which comes first, the chicken or the egg? Are we runners because we’re energetic, or are we energetic because we’re runners? I think it’s a little of both. I know that I have a lot of energy because I’m in a regular exercise routine, and my clients tell me that they gain energy once they get in the swing of things with their new workout routine. 

I’m also highly motivated and energetic when I have physical projects to work on as opposed to office projects – think painting and doing yard work versus writing this blog post. 😉 As a result, the beautiful weather lured me outside and I spent seven hours being energetic instead of writing about being energetic.

Without a doubt this is my shortest Wednesday Word post because this highly energetic person needs to go to bed. My 4:30 AM alarm is just a few hours away and tomorrow’s to-do list is a mile long…


What makes you most energetic?
