Hi, My name is Jeff, My age ? Ask my wife I don't keep track, life is too short to be worried about numbers in my mind they are meaningless. As soon as you start keeping track you start getting old and eventually give up sit down, waste away waiting to die. Aging happens to all of us, the human body can't go on forever in it's current condition. 20 years from now I probably won't be able to workout quite as hard as I do now, but I refuse to give up and be pushing a walker. I plan to come sliding in on that day God calls me home screaming "All glory be to the Lord ! What a ride !"

A little over a year ago I had my right rotator cuff surgically repaired. It's healed but I'm amazed at the upper body strength I lost. So about 3 month's ago I restarted a strangth routine for my shoulder and eventually brought some cardio in the form of aerobics in. Now I am to the ppoint of doing some regular strength training with light weights. I can even do some pushups.

I'm getting close to my target weight but it always seems like the last few pounds are the hardest to shed. But I'm working at it. I run 3 days a week and have two strength circuit training routines I do twice a week. I take two days off as rest days to allow your muscles to recover and rebuild are extremely important.

    Hi Jeff emoticon ,
    Forgive those who insult you, attack you,
    belittle you, or take you for granted.

    But more than this...
    forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you.

    Have a truly thankful Thursday!

    ~~~~~When someone tells you that you can’t do something,
    Perhaps you should consider that they are only telling you what they can’t do~~~~

    Even though these are 4 separate quotes, I felt they were all very similar to be able to combine them together...hope you will feel the same.

    ~~~~~~~Have a tremendous, terrific, and very "HAPPY" Thursday!~~~~~~~
