This is the time of year that we enjoy bike rides and taking walks at Lake Ray Roberts. The trail at Ray Roberts reminds me of hiking in Arkansas (yes, I have a good imagination). The fall is a wonderful time of year. It is easier to exercise when it is not so hot outside. Hopefully, the cooler weather will stay around. I could definitely get used to it.
I have exercised more in the last week than I have over the last 15 years, because we just changed our health insurance to one that included a membership to a local gym. I was naïve enough to think I could just start exercising at the same level as 15 years ago. I am realizing that my body is older than the last time I exercised. I keep telling myself that these aches and pains are my body building muscle. I always feel so much better when I am exercising, so I don’t understand why it is so hard to motivate myself to exercise. One motivating factor is when I ask my healthy clients, who are in their 80s and 90s how they stay healthy, the most common answer is exercise and staying active. So I am one week closer to be healthy in my 90s.
