What my older clients would say to my younger clients…

I am probably what they, whomever ‘they’ are, call ‘older’ I guess. I’m 63. It is always kinda weird to say that I am 60 anything and just when I was getting used to saying 50 whatever. Anyway, I can relate sort of (denial here) to my clients who are around my age and older. I know them well, and I think that they would say (plus I’ve heard them say) most of these things:

-start exercising now. I don’t care if you don’t like to. Do it!

-don’t do what I did and wait to take good care of yourself. Eat healthy and exercise everyday. I have plenty of money, am retired now, but I have had a triple bypass, 2 stents, and it’s scary. I am trying to regain my health. I shouldn’t have waited. I should have exercised more.

-keep your joints strong while you’re young. You’ll want them to last.

-hire a qualified trainer and never miss a session. Priorities, priorities!

-lose that weight that you’ve always wanted to lose. Don’t carry around 25, 30 extra pounds. It hurts!

-don’t take your health for granted.

-I don’t know what to do with all of this stuff I have and am selling my 4 bedroom house ’cause I don’t need it anymore. I’d rather spend time with my high school sweetheart now. It’s the most important thing.

-I wish I could hike still but my knees are bad ’cause I didn’t keep fit. Keep fit! And lose weight.

I am sure there’s more so this is just the tip of the iceberg but you get the jist.

By the way, the kindness tree is because I do this out of kindness and I love what these kids did. They attend my elementary school which makes me feel sentimental. I just loved it when I saw it yesterday.

❤️Love, me

Beautiful day for a sand run!

Even though it was soooo chilly outside, I promised myself to a run. So I had to do what so many other fit people have to do: not let those hesitating, negative thoughts in and just GO! And guess what? It was so worth it. My mood is always lifted plus I ran into a couple of people I didn’t know who had the same experience. That made my choice worth it in every way!

I hope you enjoy your day.
