Being healthy

When I was in my late teens and early 20s, I was fairly active. I skied, played squash and tennis, took my bicycle on long trips, etc.

And then came marriage and the babies. I ended up in a situation where I could just not use a sitter for one of the kids, so my social life and physical activities pretty much vanished for many years.

When I was in my late teens and early 20s, I was fairly active. I skied, played squash and tennis, took my bicycle on long trips, etc.

And then came marriage and the babies. I ended up in a situation where I could just not use a sitter for one of the kids, so my social life and physical activities pretty much vanished for many years.

And nearly 20 years later, I found myself with bad knees and really low on muscle mass. I couldn't even climb a ladder or walk up and down stairs normally.

In June 2007 I embarked on a mission to get back my lost muscle. And then it happened. I found out I was addicted to building muscle! (I just wish the progress was faster.)

When I joined SP in early Jan '08, I thought my goal was to "see my abs". I later resigned myself to the fact that will never happen. Later, my obsession became my shoulders.

But really, what it all boils down to is, I love how healthy I feel and how much more energy I've got. And that I can walk up and down stairs like a normal person now. And hills won't kill me when I'm hiking. If I never get the shoulders, back, abs etc, it really doesn't matter.


Favourite quotes:
"The future you see is the future you get."

"It's never too late to start over."

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

"Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and all good things will be yours."

"Everything is hard before it is easy"

"If nothing changes, nothing changes"
