I know I’m showing the signs of my age, but I do think it’s important to continue to exercise and work hard at least three times a week. One of my indulgences is a class called “Body Pump.” It’s creator is Les Mills, and that is all I will say about that, except it has been a great way to stay fit and toned. I love the people who are willing to tough this fifty-five minutes with me three times a week. They have become great friends and an even greater support system to keep going during those times when my body feels it’s age. Face it, age isn’t something we can avoid… the marsupial like quality of my abdomen is vivid proof, but we can delay the effects of time by exercising, eating healthy foods and getting enough rest. Besides getting regular chiropractic adjustments, I have eliminated most gluten from my diet because of how it can increase inflammatory diseases in our bodies. I also make sure to supplement with a good multivitamin; CoQ10, an enzyme the helps rebuild healthy cells and; Moxxor, a high quality omega fatty acid and antioxidant. These simple choices have made all the difference in staying healthy and fit. Seeing so many people who struggle with health issues that are much younger than I am keeps me grateful, even with my own challenges. I don’t take enough time to be thankful for my health. Today, even with all my imperfections, I am grateful.
