As a 60 year old, that is. Yep, tomorrow I turn 61 and today I feel every bit of those 60+ years. It is cold outside, snow covered, slick on my walking path, and my meteorological knee tells me it's gonna be like this for a while. Darn it all. However, I will not let this deep freeze we live in deter me from enjoying my advancing age. As they say, "It beats the alternative!!". Amen to that.
I have moved some of my exercise equipment upstairs to keep from having to run up and down stairs too many times per day. Unfortunately, the bike, the dreadmill and the elliptical of death are still in the downstairs family room, so on the days I wish to ride, run or die, I'll have to go downstairs. Truthfully, the computer is in the downstairs area too, so I'll be down there anyway, might as well take a spin on something or another. I can pretty much guarantee you it won't be the elliptical of death. That thing is just to damned hard on me at this point. I'm not alone in that assessment, either. Everyone who tried to use it over the holidays said it was a beast, too. I feel semi-vindicated. :)
Since my pre-New Year's proclamation that I was returning to my journaling of food, I have been true to my word. I've left myself a little leeway, and am going to stick to my Wednesday Weigh Ins even tho' my new journey actually began in earnest on a Friday. So, after being 61 for one whole day, I will step onto the scales once again, and prepare to be dazzled!!!
In my ongoing attempt to find exercises that are reasonable for me to do, I have amassed a folder of pages from magazines and online ideas. I'm going to put them together in a coherent plan this week. I can't just jump from page to page willy nilly and expect to remember what I'm doing. I do, however, think I can put together a couple of routines that will work nicely. I'll rotate them so I don't get bored, and everything that CAN get moved, WILL get moved.
With all the pieces in place, I begin my 61st year with great optimism and hope. It is my intention to be blogging long into my "declining years" whatever age that might be. :)
