Delray Beach- I'm Not Aging in Place!

I agree completely. 

Right now I'm on the hotel computer to update my ActiveRain blog for the morning.  Then I go directly two doors down to the hotel (temp. residence)  gym for a workout on the weight machine.

YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE - muscles and overall general health.

I wouldn't stay at a hotel without a gym.

I do have a gym membership and I go there almost daily, but the weather today is horrible so I'm staying in. 

My motto?  Keep Moving.

Delray Beach- I’m Not Aging in Place!

I may have become a year older this week, but I’m not aging in place.  Larry and I met an angel sent from the heavens a few weeks ago and we started an intense training program this week.  We started on Monday and went every morning this past week.  

We start up again on Monday.  So, I’m NOT aging in place… I’m moving!  Yes, we walk the beach every day and ride our bicycles but we wanted more.

Be careful what you wish for!  Muscles?! Think of what it would be like trying to use a cooked noodle to pick up a big bar of Godiva Dark Chocolate!

There’s no excuse for our not working out.  We have a beautiful beach for running, walking or sunning.  Some groups head there for group workouts.

My suggestion…. if you’re considering joining a gym and you aren’t familiar with the machines, hire a trainer.  Even if you know what to do, it doesn’t hurt to check with a professional to make sure that what you’re doing is correct.  

An older gentleman (you know he must have been old if I’m saying “older.”) came up to us while we were working out and said…

Maybe I should hire a trainer.  I’ve been coming here for 4 years and nothing seems to change.

It’s a bit the same in many things we do.  Sellers who want to go FSBO who are wondering why there home hasn’t sold.

Women who say they would never have plastic surgery or anything else to enhance their looks are either lying or under 35.

Kathy.  Thanks.  I would say that it's the most important task I have each day.

Now, I'm off to the gym.

Hi Lenn,

So many have gym memberships and do not go there.

Excellent re-blog Lenn.....I have been reading about your workouts for years and know how important they are to you.  It took two knee surgeries to get me moving daily and it feels great.  I plan to increase my exercise and continue with dropping weight also.  So far, I am down 36 pounds in three months.

Good morning Lenn. Good for you! I agree with you completely, I workout 4-6 days per week, 30 to 60 minutes each time. Lots of years for me.

Make it a great weekend!

Go for it Lenn!  I try to exercise every morning - even if my knees ache! In the long run the benefits are well worth the ache!

Physical exercise is important and beneficial.   Just don't forget to mentally exercise too   As we get more experienced (OK, older) we tend to get set in our ways.

  So, demand equal time and exercise your brain too.   There are too many out there who are physically with us but brain dead

Lenn, hotel computers are not fun!  But the gyms sure are.  You're an inspiration to all of us who are contributing to the high average age of the Realtor population.

Doug.  Sad.  Of course they have the best intentions.

Roger.  WOW!  If I had a gold star, you'd get it.

Barbara.  We've followed your adventure in good health.  It's inspirational.

Bill.  HA!  Wait until you're my age, you may think differently.

Joe.  Excellent and your vigor shows.

Gary.  Work our hard today, have a few sore muscles tomorrow and the next day, you're back to normal.  It works.

Deanna.  Agreed.  No way an active real estate broker can have a lazy mind.

Pat.  You have no idea how good I felt when I found out the average age of real estate agents/brokers. 

George.  Inside yesterday, but I'm ready for a fishing adventure before winter sets in.

Lenn, oh such great words of non-aging wisdom! Love it and thank you, "pumped up older-type babe"(ahem, we ARE babes, after all in the sexiest way possible--successful and staying young!)

I have to go comment on Kathy's post--thank you for re-blogging as I'm a firm believer in feeling whatever age I WANT TO BE!

I saw an old friend last week that said hiring a personal trainer was the best money she had ever spent. Staying in shape is like getting the most out of life and adding more years to the equation.

Gosh, you are all so good... I only walk 5 to 10 miles (10 very rare, though), and swim just a little in the pool...
