Just for fun, I did a search on my own blog to see what resolutions I’ve made in the past. Nothing came up. Maybe I used “intentions” rather than “resolutions.” I didn’t spend a lot of time searching because I’m pretty sure any I made did not make it through the first month. Resolutions have a bad rap so it seems acceptable to not stick with them.
I did find my first new year blog post. Hard to believe I’ve been at this for over six years. Here is what we did in 2004. Interestingly enough we were in Colorado then as we thought we were going to be this year.
Back to resolutions. If there is one consistent theme throughout any health information for seniors, it is how beneficial exercise is for mind and body. Over the years, I have tried to have some kind of program. Basically, I’ve kept my weight within the normal limits and had normal blood pressure, etc. because I’ve, at the least, walked two miles on a regular basis, and at the most, had a full hour-long floor exercise program each morning.
It’s been about five years ago that I started slacking off. No idea why.
I’m not going to say it’s a resolution, but I am going to get back to moving in 2011. I have a treadmill in the basement, Kim has a couple machines available at her clinic that I could schedule myself on. If nothing else, I can bundle up and walk to the mailbox, a .6 mile round trip.
It’s a “no excuse” year. I turn 65 years old in little over a month and it’s time to do all I can to make these latter years healthy and happy.
