2015, Walk or die.

Retirement status of life is settling in. I've got real time for fitness. I've had three simple words circulating in my head for a while, "Walk or die." I choose "walk" and all that follows it. I have a set of mountains I'd like to climb. I figured them out by height. My list starts by my home at 2100 feet and ends with a mountain in Mexico at 18,000 feet.

Thanks for the comment on my blog a while back. I know it was called 'senile diabetes' - however, with the research it is not really an appropriate term because it is linked to insulin resistance which happens a lot earlier and is is not uncommonly part of what is call 'dysmetabolic syndrome' where the lipids - blood sugar and weight is affected.

Just happened on your page via Speedydog. Good luck with retirement. I suspect I'll need a 'boost' in order to get there myself.

Hi Speedydad,

Let me know what you change your ID to. I had a similar situation when I lost a job that gave me an insurance rebate for tracking nutrition on SparkPeople.

I closed the old "corporate" account and reopened under "OLDDOG". I change my ID to "SPEEDYDOG" when I came in 4th in a 5 mile trail race behind two Air Force Academy cross-country runners, and my own son who took first place! I would like to say I was battling down to the finish line. However, these three elite runners were a long ways ahead of me! But these "kids" were less than half my age!

I feel for you. I know how bewildering your situation is.

Bruce

Thanks for the comment on my blog! We are actually talking about, after we move, potentially getting some chickens. So you gave me one more incentive! :-)
