-What is the difference between movement vs. exercise?

Wendy: any physical activity that enhances physical fitness.  It should be challenging enough to change your body composition.  Weight training, jogging, running, zumba, cross fit, power walking.

-You say that we create excuses not to exercise…

Wendy: Don’t accept excuses from yourself, work through the excuses.  See them for what they are.

-“I don’t like to sweat”

Wendy: Mist your body with your favorite body spray prior to exercise.  Take advantage of indoor programs that offer air conditioning and fans – like a spinning class.

-Exercise: “It’s too hard, I have kids”

Wendy: You are their example; take advantage of gym daycare or invest in home equipment.  Plan to exercise during their nap or sleeping times.

-“I work full time”

Wendy: Many regular exercisers work full-time, have families and even take classes part-time. Take the time to exercise throughout your busy schedule.  Take ten minutes jogs two or three times a day, do jumping jacks at your desk, jump rope in the office, take flights of stairs every other hour of your shift, walk the perimeter of where you work.  Stop at the gym for a 30 minute run on the treadmill or elliptical.  Commit yourself to something!

- “Every minute of my day is spoken for, by the time I get home I am exhausted”

Wendy: All more reason to get out and “bust a move.” Energy begets energy.  If you commit yourself to 30-60 minutes of exercise regularly you will have the energy to be much more productive.  Work out for 60-90 minutes on your day off. Exercise during work – 10 minutes during break in the morning, 30 minutes over the lunch hour and again for 10 minutes during afternoon break.

-“Frankly, I am just plain lazy”

Wendy: You can sit in a chair for an hour and get a great fitness routine done.  Google “chair exercising.”

- “I hate it, hate it, hate it!”

Wendy: So did I when I first started.  Now I’m addicted!  Find something you enjoy, try things you’ve never tried before.

-“I get bored”

Wendy: Change it up.  Try something new.  Try something that you know will challenge you.

-“I don’t have any one to exercise with”

Wendy: Never be dependent on someone else for your weight.  You are in charge of you.  Commit to classes, you will always be with someone else.  Use a treadmill, bike or elliptical next to someone else.  Get to know new people who are committed to physical activity.

- “It’s too hot”

Wendy: Put a fan on you, turn up the air conditioning

-“Too cold”

Wendy: Bundle up.

-“It is snowing/sleeting”

Wendy:  Wear traction soles, raining – that’s what umbrellas are for.


Wendy: Avoid NC, exercise in SC, ha!


Wendy: See if you can out run it!  “The Bottom Line” – exercise anyway.

-“I just can’t seem to stick with it; I allow my emotions to interfere”

Wendy: If you are sad, mad, depressed, tired or angry exercise is a great release.  I too at times do not feel like exercising and feed myself with negative messages, but I follow through with positive actions.  While I’m telling myself how tired I am, I’m putting my tennis shoes on.  When I’m telling myself how cold it is outside, I’m putting on a jacket and I walk out the door for a power walk.  I’m always so glad I did it and always feel so much better afterward.

-“I walk to the mail box every day that is my exercise”

Wendy: Walking out to check the mail, stretching, taking a stroll in the neighborhood, taking a casual bike ride, walking the dog does not count.  You have got to be challenged, your breathing should be much faster than usual, you need to be exerting energy; the activity is prolonged for 30-60 minutes.  KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOVEMENT AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY OR EXERCISE.

-“I fight depression and just don’t feel like moving”

Wendy: Exercise builds self-confidence, clears the mind, motivates creativity, improves self-image, improves sleep, and improves relationships.  Exercise is your physical prescription for depression.

Dear Wendy,

“I have reached my goal weight, my wife says that I look great and does not understand why I still work out everday, what do I say?”



Wendy: Maintenance is key!  Taking it off is one battle; the next battle is keeping it off.  Exercise keeps you fit, increases your lean body mass, controls excess body fat and keeps you energized.  It’s a very good habit to get into and should become a daily lifestyle habit.  Tell your loved one you worked very to get the weight off and you want to keep it off.  Let them know your new found health and vitality is very important to you.

Wendy Griffith is a Physician Assistant with Advanced Medical Weight Management Center and she also practices in Emergency Medicine.  She is a graduate of the MUSC Physician Assistant program.  She also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and a Master’s degree in Exercise Science.  Prior to becoming a Physician Assistant she was a Registered Dietitian who owned her own company.  Wendy enjoys trail biking, walking the bridge, kayaking, target shooting, container gardening and cooking.  Wendy would like everyone to know that she has been packing her meals (breakfast and lunch) every day for over twenty years and contributes planning and preparation as the key to controlling weight.
