Not Just My Apple Watch Asking if I Am Working Out

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

Alrighty, it goes without saying that Barbara Todaro  will be pleased to hear I finally joined a gym. Of worthy note, I am NOT eating boiled chicken. I still prefer my chicken grilled. But when faced with the facts of life, those facts that are not a TV show, it is easy to see why I finally came to the conclusion I needed to join a gym. Of course, coming to the conclusion and then acting on that decision are two different things, and I know that. Without hesitation, I know that.

The main problem seems to be I can't count on my good looks and nature to carry me through life until I leave the earth. Nope, that journey requires a bit of work on my part now that I'm over 65. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: My First Day at Planet Fitness in Kona.

I tried to click through to your other blog to read the rest of the story, but got an error.  In any case, I'm glad you have joined a gym, Elizabeth.  What I learned several years ago, was that becoming unfit has a way of sneaking up on you.  The first thing you know, your knees are hurting, you can't lift things as easily as you once did.  Your stamina takes a nose-dive, etc.  I am one of those folks who used a fitness regime to claw my way back to some semblance of good health.

I have been over-eating since Thanksgiving, and put on 7 pounds.  Getting them off, plus a few more, is at the top of my New Years Resolutions. . .As, it is every year!

Myrl Jeffcoat Thank you for letting me know about the link. I have fixed it!!!

Yes, I have noticed the same thing, little things start to slide when you're not doing anything physical. Before long, it could become big things. So, while I might not like having to add this new routine into my life, it is necessary.

Aloha Elizabeth- - -yes "The Facts of Life" is more than a television sitcom and much closer to "reality"  than "reality show". I also wonder(but not much) about the business plan of Planet Fitness. Good luck.

Hi Elizabeth- we were members of Planet Fitness for several years and only stopped after Larry had to have shoulder surgery, and then neurosurgery. We hope to get back to it soon. I like Planet Fitness because it's affordable and clean!!!

Elizabeth, good job!    As we age, our metabolism slows down much more than I expected, and gravity doesn't help!

Perfect response to that trainer, Elizabeth! I remember when I first started working with a trainer in Charlotte  years ago... he was a 26 year old kid (who subsequently became a friend and client). He was putting me through my paces to check my stamina and it was very clear he was very surprised at the stamina at the age of 60. I told him there is life after 60.
