November 16th – Healthy Living

I started my day with a trip to our local pharmacy to get my third Covid shot and my annual flu shot.  I had my pneumonia shot a few weeks ago and just finished a bottle of antibiotics.   Bottom line, I should dodge any nasty bugs that are out and about this winter.  🧖

Everyone has their own level of health and fitness and we all have our own challenges in preserving or improving it.    Hopefully, these ‘words of wisdom’ can inspire us all to make some healthy life choices today.

It’s Go Time

The snow and ice has kept me housebound for a few months now and Dan has been laid off for a month. It is time for us to get active before we turn into Mr. & Mrs. Doughboy.

We have decided to start working out together. Having a workout partner will help to make it fun and hopefully keep us motivated. The plan is for us to take turns leading off on a few exercises for each session. This should afford us plenty of variety and split the struggle of coming up with workout routines.

The challenging part is that we are coming from two totally different places and working out for two totally different reasons. Dan has a long history of playing intense sports (hockey, baseball, racquetball) and working an extremely physical job in the steel industry. I on the other hand, have never even watched sports, much less participated! I have worked in administration and sales, most of the time being desk bound. While we both want to lose some weight, my health issues are respiratory, while Dan’s are circulatory. It is going to be fun, coming up with workout plans that work for both of us!

Day two, down and done!

Falling over tree pose – that’s a thing right?

Stay safe, keep active 🏋️
