Fitness at 58

As my body is in the shut down mode, the importance of exercises can not be underplayed.
The aging process of respiratory change, capillary system hardening so oxygen doesn’t transfer from lungs to blood well, falling arches making shoe selection more important then ever and just needing longer to recover the muscles.
In the mid of adulthood little aches come about. Generally because our exercise or activeness has decreased. Doctors quick to diagnose ailments as anything but a lack of muscle tone and elasticity.
For me it is a spur on the lower vertebrae. I could do one of two tracks. Pain pills and surgery or strengthening the leg muscles that pull on the lower back. This is how my fitness fascination started in my mid forties.
Muscle atrophy is not our friend.
I’m doing Insanity workout for the second time. No I am not ripped, I’ve fallen into to much beer, which I am trying to correct.
Life is a pursuit of dreams and life value duties.
Our whole self needs to be nurtured equally as we grow into adulthood and senior living.
This blog is about the body part of that equation. Our body systems need to be thought about daily. Each meal is an opportunity to go one way or the other. Junk food is more in our american available diet then good food.
