I have no idea where the age cut off is for not having to pay attention to this stuff. All I know is *I'm* past it. But what I've learned is that if I want to keep being able to do what I want to, I have to maintain a regular level of cardio activity (sustained heart rate) burning those calories AND watch what and how much I eat. I can't have it both ways. I can't keep eating yummy foods and only exercising for short periods episodically and expect things to stay the same, much less improve. That's what my dad thought and he died a fat and lazy man who wasn't all that old (69).
Anyone else over 50 on a workout program care to share? Anybody else on a rowing machine (specifically a Concept II)? If you are interested in becoming a training partner, pm me.
As for me, there isn't much I can do about the "old" part (except try to achieve it
), but I am darn sure trying to do something about the Fat and Lazy part! Does my body hurt after a good workout or full day on the job site? You bet
But a nice hot shower and a good night's rest is better than any pill. Besides, pain is just weakness leaving the body.
Ezekiel Bread .... you develop a tolerance for it after a year or so ...
