I am getting fit at 46!
I said it so it must be done! My house is filled with active people, trihubby works out 2-6 hours a day, dancer daughter dances 6 days a week 3-4 hours a day, gymnasts son works out 6 days a week 3-4 hours a day then there is me. At 45 I was fit running almost everyday and doing some small workouts at home. Then I fell and I fell hard, like flat on my face break on nose 8 stitches in and out of my mouth hard, during a run with my running group.
When I was all clear to run I did then I got scared. I was so afraid of falling, so I stopped. Then I had to arrange to move our family to Omaha, finish building our home, get the twins summer trip planned, twins graduation, hubby hit on his bicycle my a drunk driver, move, twins trip and now getting them off to college. All good excuses, right? NO, but I used them.
But like with all bad things more follow, with the added stress I added some comfort food and diet coke. It’s not like I grew out of my clothes or anything I am just not where I want to be, not fit and upset!
I have run a few times and went down to the gym in our building a few times but nothing worth writing home about.
So today it is documented I will Get Fit at 46. The twins will both be active in college, Sam is a diver on the Brandeis University Swim and Dive team and Sydney is double majoring in college with one being a BA in dance. And hubby, well later today we will know more after his doctors appointment, but right now he is still iin recovery mode but swims a little, goes for short runs and jumps on the recumbent bike. So it’s my turn.
Today is day one.
