They tell me exercise is very important if you plan to live
forever healthy, so I am trying. We walk most days for an hour, not sure if that is considered strenuous exercise or not.
Every evening I am trying to do a few Yoga stretches to keep from being too stiff. I think it is limbering me up some. For once in my life I am trying to go at it very slowly.
Can you touch your toes? Come on now, I mean without pulling them up in the seat with you!’
I have never been able to just stand up, stiff legged and touch my toes. I must exercise regularly to be able to do that. Sherry can stand flat footed and after awhile put her palms on the floor. But unless I have a daily regiment of exercises I cannot touch my toes, that has always aggravated me.
(I could never do this! but I think I will work on it)
I am a little afraid to try running anymore, not sure of my balance at 74, but I want to.
(This is no secret, since I have gotten older, the above is what I see in an elderly person, WE only know what we once were, I do not blame the youth for not seeing it, this insight ONLY comes with age.)
I cannot make up my mind if deep knee bends are good for me or not. Seems to be placing a lot of work on the knees.
Years ago I really messed up my right shoulder rotator cuff. That is very important to a R/handed carpenter, lately I have been using an exercise I saw on the net and it seems to be working, who knows I might need to build another house.(LOL)
So exercise and smile, stick with me and live
forever, I mean healthy, who knows we may run into each other in a home of the aged.
We can start a NASCAR scooter racing circuit!
I read the other day, “the folk who are never sick are going to feel mighty silly, laying in a hospital dying of nothing.” Sorry to repeat, if I read it on your blog.
Life is never what you expect, sometimes it is actually better.
Imma thinking Hudson, only what I can make out on the hubcap But I love it.
