Sparked My Optometrist

Monday, February 11, 2013

Over the weekend, I went for my eye checkup and my doc is great. Been going to him, like, forever.

We were talking about good health at one point and he said he eats healthy, but doesn't exercise. I explained to him the SP suggestion of doing 10-minute increments throughout the day - including my idea of walking in place while watching TV (hey, it's a start). He said sure, I can do that. And seemed genuinely excited to start moving. Frankly, I could see the difference two years made since last seeing him. Although not overweight, his body looked like it longed for activity. I walked away more motivated as well. It was a good reminder that if you don't use it, you lose it. Muscle mass loss was obvious.

Wishing all a happy day.

    Maybe its an optometrist thing. Mine was telling me how she forces herself to eat oatmeal at least 3 times a week just to feel like she's doing something healthy. emoticon
