I have decided to use Friday to say Thank You to some people who have motivated me each week. I am just getting started and some people have been very kind and commented to help me through some things. Others have motivated just by their posts. I have spent a lot of time reading other people's posts. There are some great ones out there!
This weeks Friday's Friends are:
Believing in Myself
Sky n Surf
My Morning Cup of Coffee
Thanks to all of you. Take a look at their blogs, if you haven't already. They are all very inspiring. They are not all weight loss, just fun, interesting people.
Now on to other things. I haven't gotten my work-out in today. I do intend to do that in a few minutes. The soreness has toned down. As many people have commented, if you feel sore that is a good sign. It means you have worked your body. When I was too sore to move it didn't seem so good, but now I'm okay with it. I guess it's time to really work my body some more then.
I have been busy today so I haven't gotten around to answering comments. I apologize. My husband has been on me to get my taxes done. I started them the other day, so I worked on them a little more today. I also have some taxes to do for a couple of my friends.
I went to have my hair colored today, that takes half my day. It looks good though, no more gray! My gray seems to coming in more all the time. I didn't have a single gray hair at fifty, but I sure do now. I am getting older.
Does getting older mean that you can't be in good shape? I am going to say a resounding NO! I can't let age be an excuse for gaining weight and getting flabby.
I realize that as you get older you don't burn as many calories. Is that just because we aren't doing as much? When I was young I went non-stop. Even when I had my last child at forty, I would go to the playground with him almost daily. I would climb up the slide and run and play with him. Do we need to play more?
I am sure if I showed up at the playground and started running and playing without taking a child with me, they would call the police. People would think I had lost my mind. There are other ways to play.
How about commenting and telling me how you play?
This weekend my grandson's are coming to stay overnight. They are 5 and almost 10. I know they will find ways to play the entire time. I will definitely be playing and I will be exhausted when they go home.
I am going to focus on playing more. I'm ready for any ideas you might have.
