Last week on our vacation I had a big victory. I am the lady who hates exercise. I've been walking regularly for the last 7 months because it does wonderful things for my blood sugar and health. Walking outside in the neighborhood (up and down hills) or on the river walk or other hikes is great fun. Walking inside - not as exciting but same health benefits. So last week we were at Steelhead Falls which is only a mile round trip but down a very steep slope and, of course, back up again. My husband and a friend went with me and not only was I thrilled to do that hike with a lot of strength but I had the pleasure of their amazement that I could do it.
I'm 66 years old. Only 4 months I'll be 67!! I want to be as active as possible as long as possible and with increased strength and motivation I believe I will do it. Today I added strength training to my exercise. A new challenge that will bring many benefits.
How about you? What health benefits are you enjoying?
