I CAN ..................

Touch my toes! I have been working out for 4 days stretching and also walking. I did not get to walk this morning so will do so this evening. I have to wait for it get dusky and cooler.

Exercise can do mah-velous things! I don't weigh myself as I am not doing this to loose weight. I am doing this to become more fit. My butt droops, my back hurts (less), and I am stiff as a board (or used to be). I don't want to end up stiff and sore and with a broken joint/hip or other bone because I am not flexible. I work with the elderly -- and well -- they don't move enough. They are not encouraged to get out and do -- because they get tired easily. Come to think of it so do I....

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

OH! I am awake! Anyway -- exercise folks! Even if its just a few minutes to start. Slow and steady wins the race and BABY STEPPING folks.... it works!

Now for the legal stuff -- if you have not been exercising already, please do see a doctor for a check up. I am not going to be liable for encouraging you to do something if your body is REALLY NOT CAPABLE of exercising. Do this at your own risk.

Mom's the same age as you an feels the same way - use it or lose it. She can't touch her toes and her legs are tight - if she doesn't feel great now, how will she feel when she's 60, 70, 80??? Fanks fur the encouragement. I try to get her to play hard, throwin and fetchin my toys.
