I have the day off today so I'm still at camp. There's a lovely little gym which is really a physical therapy/rehab center 2 miles away in town that I joined so I could work out on weekends. This morning as I was on the treadmill, I saw a larger than usual population of seniors, probably because it's a week day and the younger set frequents the gym more on weekends which is when I'm usually there. Anyway, I watched senior after senior totter in, struggle to get on a recumbent bike or recumbent stepper and thought to myself, "Holy cow, THIS is why I need to keep working out, get stronger, get more flexible and stay really active. Use it or lose it!"
I give them credit for even being there, don't get me wrong. They weren't at home in their recliners or rocking chairs which is where I always was prior to January this year. I am so grateful I started changing my life style before it was too late!
