biscottibody59 on 11/12/2014:
Thanks. I've been at it off and on for about 30 years and at my age (55) it's more crucial than ever.

I am amazed at your routines. You are an inspiration what you do would kill me. LOL Keep up the good job.

biscottibody59 on 11/08/2014:
Thanks--but I'm actually in the worst shape I've been in since about age 40 (I'm 55).

Anyone can do wt trng!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/09/2014:
ohhh how I miss weight training...the best exercise to shape your body. honestly, if there is one most important exercise for making your body look nice in and out of clothing, it's weights.

biscottibody59 on 11/09/2014:
Vanity's down on the list for me of late. I'm just wanting to establish a routine I can live with so I can maintain lean muscle, keep my bones healthy and strong and have a strong immune system for the rest of my life.

I hear you though:-)

I guess if it takes baby (embryonic even--haha) steps, I will commit to wt training again. If I fall off, I'll try to get back on again quickly rather than putting it out of my mind. If all I can do is a minimal workout, well I'll just have to accept that. That's that. Not doing anything for weeks is just about as bad for me as never doing anything.

Exercise: Nothing

My 5-Day Challenge (W-Th-F-Sa-Su): 1) No-added-fat veg only, including blackeyed peas, beans and greens and up to three fruit svgs and no more than .5 oz nuts or seeds per day; 2) Water--at least 68 oz; 3) At least 45 min purposeful cardio daily.

Day 1: Made all goals. (Particulars on previous entry.)

Day 2: I did well--didn't quite hit the cardio goal or the water goal. (Particulars on previous entry.)

Day 3: No goals met. (Particulars on previous entry.)

Day 4 & 5: All goals died on the vine, though today is still Day 5, so I may be able to pull something out worth counting as a win:-) I didn't do too badly on water yesterday. *** UPDATE 11.3 *** Nothing to write home about--no goals met for Day 5.

These short challenges always yield some lessons for me. I know I'm on the right track with the challenge goal food. The one thing I badly need is some wt trng--I won't go on about it, but if you read me, you know how I feel about it. My age 55 body (such as it is) bears no resemblance to me at any age of the last 40 years ending in a "5." I better stop before I begin to whine any more than that.

I had another entry prepared, but it kinda goes off on a couple of my pet tangents, so this will have to suffice for now:-)

Like a friend's outgoing VM msg used to say simply, "You know what to do!"
