MERRY FITNESS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
Become the abdominal snowman by doing your plank exercises.
Remember when we made two long lists of things to do daily? We ran around until we were exhausted getting everything on the list finished. We hardly carried anything over to a new list. I also remember booking my life chock full of stuff each day moving around like a pinball in a pinball machine. I am finding those things have changed drastically. All of a sudden I cannot maintain that kind of schedule anymore. I am not sure if it’s my head or my body that doesn’t want to cooperate. Maybe both. Even I get tired nowadays. Some times I just want to sit, have my morning coffee, read the paper and not go anywhere and not do anything. I keep thinking something is wrong with me. I’m 66 and it could be time to stop and smell the roses for awhile. I haven’t given in yet to thinking this is a passing issue but when getting gas, grocery shopping at two different stores and going to the bank all in one afternoon wears me out maybe I need to recognize this situation might not pass at all.
While training for Ironman triathlon, I worked out 30 days on and 1 day off per month. Now, 30 days off and 1 day on surely sounds better. Funny thing is, all of this just snuck up on me (probably while I was napping). Now, I must face the reality that life changes as we get older so keep your sense of humor handy.
Thank you to my friend Diane who suggested I stay on Match.com a bit longer. I just met someone very special. Who knows what the universe holds for us.
Tip of the day:
WALK TALL NOT SHORT. Let your chest enter the room before your nose. Great posture becomes you.
