In an earlier post, I spoke about an epiphany I had over Mother's Day weekend. I had gone to a wedding and took a look at myself in pictures. Yikes!! Obviously I have been spending way to much time on the computer working my wicking sleepwear business and blogging and forgot that I needed to stay active.
Most baby boomers will agree that as we get older, the weight seems to creep up easier and is more difficult to get off. Gone are the days when we can lose a quick few for a special event. Losing weight, safely, takes time and a committment to a healthier way of life. Activity is key, as is everything in moderation.
I have taken up walking using Leslie Sansone's program. This works for me since I am not a gym person. I like the flexibility I have by working out at home and this walking program is structured just enough and gentle on my knees. Better yet, I am seeing results, and this keeps me going on the days when I really don't feel like exercising.
To keep me honest, I am recording my progress on a sweet little gadget from the ticker factory. OK...how crazy am I posting this for all the world to see, at the bottom of my blog.
This past weekend we celebrated my daughter's graduation. Too much cake and party food...but I got right back on the exercise train the next day. So...now I have confessed and my conscience is clear. (Must be my old Catholic school training coming out) The point is we can be fabulous and fifty, but it takes a commitment to activity and healthier choices. Is that really such a hard thing to do?
What's your favorite way to remain a lean, mean boomer machine?
