Many moons ago, long before the existence of the Internet, no one thought much about cardio.
The effects of living on this earth for more than half a century have begun to take their toll. But I refuse to believe that accepting “aging” and becoming less active is my only option. However, no matter how hard I have tried to convince myself I like to exercise, I just don’t enjoy it.
When I was informed that I had qualified to play tennis in this year’s National Senior Olympic Games in Albuquerque, it was a kind of dream come true.
As the colder weather and holidays approach, it’s tempting to hunker down, get comfy, and grab some hot cocoa and snacks for a long winter’s hibernation indoors.
A few days ago, while I was working my way through my usual workout routine at the gym, I noticed a woman in her mid-60s going through her 60-minute orientation.
Unless you are one of the lucky few who has a walking desk, chances are you are sitting down right now. “So what?” you may be thinking. If you are like most people, you probably have no idea that the amount of time that you spend sitting could be killing you.
It wasn’t the first time I fell, but, as I lay there in the rain, on a quiet Paris street, I vowed that it would be the last time! Several years have passed since my last fall and I don’t know whether I really will make it through my entire life without another. But, I am definitely going to do my best!
I recently watched a YouTube video makeup tutorial created by a 30-year-old makeup artist. She lamented about how she couldn’t believe she was “that old” and how depressed she felt over her ancient-ness.
I’m always curious about learning new health habits that are super effective but also fun. My firm belief is that if it’s not fun, it’s not sustainable. Life is full of unpleasant tasks, so why make exercise one of them? If ‘bootcamp’ is in the name, count me out.
While in some parts of the country it feels like summer simply won’t let up, in other parts the cooler temperatures are really starting to set in.
