      A tendency toward OCD also seems to help some form long lasting beneficial behaviors.

        I know I would not exercise if it weren’t for my dog. We deliberately did not fence in our backyard so we’d HAVE to walk our dog. I’ve always walked, ridden horses for years into my 70’s but you’d never find me in a gym. Whatever I do has to be outside, even in winter. Knowing that about myself has helped me with at least some daily exercise.

          Bravo! I've got dogs and horses too. Even the daily horse chores can be a workout!
