Oh, those whippersnappers!
People have asked: at your age (I’m 57) how can you run and lift weights?
Um, hello!? It’s changing my diaper twice a night that gets tricky! Those safety pins are a struggle!
No, but seriously, I was asked this question the other day. I don’t think he was being mean-spirited. But he can likely benefit from learning more about people who love to work out— no matter their age.
Working out is-- and always has been--- second nature to me. The desire to stay active and be healthy came early.
I was just six years old when I started Yoga in my living room on Eastmoor Blvd. in Columbus, Ohio. Mom would get home from work and we’d sit in front of the TV, turn it to PBS and do Yoga with the instructor who was decked out in tights and a leotard.
Exercise is critical for a healthy lifestyle. It’s something I do every day to feel better —physically & mentally.
1/Running 15-20 miles/week=my natural high, pain reliever & endorphin release.
2/Weight lifting, 6 days/week=builds strength, eases my chronic back pain.
3/Yoga, 6 days/week=makes me taller. Yep, in the past 15 years I’ve been a dedicated Yogi and my height has increased by ½ inch—went from 5’1.5” tall to 5’2”.
All of my workouts constantly build my confidence, overall well-being and mental strength.
Sure, I look better for it and so do you! But the aesthetics are a side effect of the work-outs— albeit, a great side effect.
Okay, gotta go.
Need to change my diaper again. Oh yeah, also time to put in my false teeth before my Meals on Wheels delivery gets here! I just know that Salisbury steak will be tough again!
