TOP 5 HEALTH TIPS

20 Apr

A lifetime of good health comes from a lifetime of many small but important daily decisions. Doing these things every day is the key. If you do, health will be your natural state. If you do this, when you are older you can be as strong and able as you are today. You might mistakenly think that you just have good genes or that you’re just lucky. Well, maybe there’ll be some of that but mostly it’s because of all those little things you did throughout your whole life. Continue reading

I’LL BE 64 YEARS OLD TOMORROW!

26 Jan

Tomorrow I am beginning an exciting adventure. It’s my birthday and the starting point for a new plan.

Throughout my whole life I’ve always pictured myself as healthy and strong. I’ve also always assumed that I’d live to at least age 100.

I’ve had to decide what actions need to accompany my big statements.

One action I’ve decided on is to publicly post fitness photos of myself annually. It will be kind of like a birthday gift to me. As I explained in a previous post, I’ve noticed that one group of people who post such photos are those who are committed to maintaining their fitness over the long haul.

I’m officially joining that group tomorrow.
