Work and Exercise
Trucks of Art
An old Packard delivery van, sorta looks like a hearse!
I wired the Honda CR-V for towing. It took me too long. But I came in that night and informed my girl I could still do a day’s work, it just takes a day and a half or two days to do it. LOL
My girl can set a schedule and stick to it. I am pretty halfhearted at that, I admit it. I ‘plan’ to exercise regularly but I do not exercise every night. I have gone weeks in between. This time I am doing pretty well, I think I have been 7 days straight. LOL.
It is not an in depth program. I combine physical exercise (squats, toe touching and pushups) with some good yoga stretching exercising. I like the discipline yoga brings to the body. I was asked once about the ‘spiritual’ side of Yoga. I had to answer I have no idea what that really means, I do know however that by going thru some of the simple muscle stretches I am more flexible, and that is important at 80 years of age.
Once Sherry did yoga exercises and I followed. I do not remember the names of all the positions. But this is The Child.. (I do it well, LOL)
This is the Forward Seat. Her hands wrap her feet. I can reach to just below my knees. (true, but I am trying) ;-)
The Plow is another I do. Toes touching the floor.
But I get just about ABOUT this far. LOL
Looking up at your legs with the ‘hanging skin’ of an 80 year old (That used to be muscle) is not for the faint hearted. ;-O
My short time is about 20-25 minutes divided about 50/50 with physical exercise and stretching. I have already lost one upper arm muscle and ligament that I blame on a prescribed statin. I QUIT and lowered my cholesterol with my diet, after the loss of that muscle. Normally we walk 2-3 miles a day but lately that has waned. Too cool!
PS : Weight is holding at 152, below that soon!
