Fabulously Fit by Fifty! Isn't that deliciously alliterative? Cindi and I started this challenge at the start of September. By the time we turn 50 (I've got six months more than she does - I married an older woman), we'll be in better shape than we've been in our lives to this point - God willing. HE holds the ultimate cards, of course. But assuming nothing catastrophic between now and then, we're committed to the weekly exercise routine (thanks, Pr. Hall - it's been a HUGE blessing). Boy, did I ever need it. Working out stress rather than holding in stress. Great stuff.
And I've decided to venture a tad on my Adkins and experiment with eating an apple each day. So far, no adverse weight gains, and I'm really enjoying the fresh fruit.
So far, the three times a week routine involves 45 minutes cardio and then working one major muscle group on each of the three days - except the mean lady at the Y made me do abs each of the three times. If you'd ever seen how butchered up my stomach is, you'll realize that abs are totally laughable. "Frankenbelly" my nephew calls the scar! So I'm quite skeptical about spending so much effort on that, but she insisted, so I'm doing it anyway.
Here's my challenge to you, dear readers: KEEP ON MY CASE! I give you permission to write me and nag at any time to see if I'm still doing it. If I miss - which I have no intention of doing - I'll post a public confession of my remissness right here on ye olde blog.
Any other 48 year olds out there want to join in? Come on! We can DO this, God willing. And, besides, it really is kind of fun.
