Well 61 is a magical age!

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Yes it was the big 61 yesterday and I feel wonderful!

Had a lovely healthy lunch at my son and his partner's home. I sent a photo of the diet I am on and they made a wonderful lunch around all the ingredients I am allowed to eat.

My biggest surprise was the day before, as I had a day off to do "me" stuff and clean the house so we could relax on my birthday. Hubby is based in the city now so has 12 hours days by the time he leaves and comes home!

II managed to clean the floors in under 2 hours! And I was not huffing and puffing as I was before!

I was blaming my AGE on my struggles to get the floors done within a reasonable time frame and thought I would not be able to manage this house in retirement!

But it had nothing to do with my AGE!
But everything to do with the extra 7 kg that I was lugging around on my poor body. I am only 162 cms short and or as they say in the old way 5'2 "!

Also called "Ducks Disease"....

So a big message to you all out there that looking for things to blame for things not achieved we need to look no further than at the extra weight we expect our body's to put up with!

    Happy Belated Birthday.

Sorry I haven't been reading all of your blogs, but I do think of you.

I am having problems with my weight too. I just have to get out of this silly funk I am in.

Take care of yourself.

    So glad to hear about your fabulous birthday fun!

And yes, the aches in most of my joints would be greatly alleviated with less weight. That''s what we all want - to feel better (and have clean floors).
