their life. However, this is not the case. As long as you do not
have any major health limitations, which can be determined by asking a doctor, you can pick up your fitness game at any time. I was a long distance runner in my younger years, and very active at other things such as biking and hiking. After my marriage, my activity level dropped and did these things less and less and eventually not at all. At one point I was a good 35 pounds over my typical weight. I saw a photo of myself, noticed how much chubbier my face was compared to my younger years, and it was then that I took notice of my large gut, love handles, etc. I decided it was time to get back in the game. As my kids got older and more active, my activity level increased along with them, going on bike outings, hikes, etc. I even got back into running and my daughter joined me on some short distance runs. Wanting to accelerate the process, I got into doing some at home fitness programs, changed my eating habits to a healthier lifestyle, and was in the best shape of my life. I actually got to the point where I could go out and run over ten miles which is further than I had ever ran in high school and was even wearing the same size jeans I wore in high school again and I was in my mid-forties!

I have developed my own fitness program which I spend at most fifteen to twenty minutes in the morning doing strength training coupled with some sort of cardio in the evening or going for a short run, power walk, Kempo, bike rides, etc. and the right kind of eating. It is essential to mix these activities up. I plan on sharing this program on this blog soon once I get it into a more user friendly format so stay tuned!
