I recently joined Sparkpeople when I began to seriously feel "OLD". I'm only 61, but was literally dragging myself around. It's only been about 7 weeks, and I'm already feeling more energetic. It suddenly struck me this week that lately, I've been thinking and planning very seriously for my retirement, but all of my energies and efforts over the last several decades have been focused on my career, and I've been neglecting taking care of myself. Now I realize that my "career life" will only continue for another 5 or 6 years, but the rest of my life will hopefully go on much longer than that. I want to enjoy those retirement years to the best of my potential, so it's time to put my energy where it most matters, and that's living a more active, healthy life. I don't know if that's wisdom or not, but I'm glad I have finally gotten to this point. Don't know why it took so long. Duh!
