Its never too late to get healthy!


A new beginning!

Just to say .......

Below is a short potted history ...........

....... the up to date ‘blog’ is on the next tab - The Actual Blog: ...

A new Beginning:

I’ve always fancied writing a blog! But never really known what to blog about ......... until now that’s is! So here goes:

At my age some people are looking forward to retirement, (well in 6 years time), but not me. Never have wanted to retire. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t ‘live to work’ ........ I ‘work to live’, and of course being able to work beyond retirement age does require good health! ....... So I’ve got a topic: Better Health - It’s never too late!

It’s never too late!

I didn’t realise how much I’d let myself go! Or maybe I did but didn’t want to admit it. After all I was nearly 60 and everyone puts on weight, becomes less fit, has difficulty putting shoes on without that typical ‘grunt’ when bending, etc etc. 

I don’t know what it is but I must give out a vibe that makes people think they can say anything to me and I won’t care, I’ll just laugh it off .... and I did. “When’s it due ....” was a common one. 

Snoring! Isn’t that what all blokes do? Putting on weight also? Getting out of breath? Raised blood pressure? I mean aren’t these all to be the expected natural processes of ‘getting older’?

I’ve now decided ‘No’ it’s not to be expected! And if I want to be fit and active well beyond the age of 67 (retirement age) then I needed to do something.
