As our bodies age and the metabolism slows down, weight starts to creep upward. Before you know it, you are fifty pounds overweight and miserable. No stamina, no interest, nothing is fun anymore because your body is worn out just from maintaining the fat it produced. You plop in front of the TV and live your life through others out there doing what you could be if you dropped some pounds and toned up a bit.
I exercise. Thirty minutes a day on a treadmill (manual) and on the Total Gym. I have to. High blood pressure (hypertension) and diabetes runs in the family on both sides. When I'm not exercising, I try to find something to do that burns calories like yard work or the future work next month on the NaNo camper. Lifting and cutting plywood is work.
Got a lot of goals to reach next year. The kind of goals where I have to be successful at a bunch of little jobs to make the whole job successful. Getting in better shape, the NaNo camper, a small boat, enlarging the garden, ducking chemtrails, etc. Need the endurance the treadmill puts into my body and the muscle toning the Total Gym does with each workout.
