Wake up Call

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I went to visit my mom in NY this vacation. I love her to bits and I love how determined she is. She loves her children and would do almost anything for them. I do, however, realize that she loves her independence. We saw some changes in gait and posture, and she wasn't eating well. This made me look at myself and how well I adapt to change. I already know I don't like change. but it is good for you. I want to do things daily that promotes me dealing with change a little easier.

    I have been hearing a lot lately about functional fitness and am adapting much of my exercise along those lines.
    I've watched my mom gradually become less mobile and able to independently accomplish many everyday tasks. Of course her age (84) is part of that but she was never one to eat based on good nutrition or exercise at all.
    Now, at 62, I am seeing (and feeling) how important taking care of ourselves truly is as we face our "golden years."
