And that is the other piece of the puzzle, being fit enough to enjoy you leisure time. I've been watching the older generation of my family succumb to smoking and diet for the past ten years. My dad and his wife just cut short a trip because she couldn't breath in Colorado. There have been three cases of COPD. Heart disease, on and on. Funny part is, my eldest uncle was an actuary and started exercising and eating right in the 1960s. He's in his mid 80s, looks like he's 60 (his girlfriend just turned 60) and he till walks about five miles a day. I want to retire because I have other things to do, not because I can't do anything anymore.

Ralph Emerson spoke it well. "Life is a journey, not a destination."
Me personally, I just try to enjoy where I am, and break at least one rule a day, as long as it helps somebody.

Re: 8 days a week

Fitness is a big deal and the lack of it is playing a big role in my life now. I was hoping that just getting out from behind the desk would be enough to improve my situation. It wasn't. I hope to start taking active measures soon.

Re: 8 days a week

Man, you guys are bringing me down. All this seems a little cliche. It seems anecdotally to fall under the mantra of "get out there and do something".

I had written three or four paragraphs of deep philosophical drivel, that I deleted. I'm going to go take a good nap.

Keep at it. I'm about your age and started a year ago. It's just now taking hold. 4 hours a week in the gym minimum and diet. I'm not religious about the DASH or New American plate, especially on vacation, but I don't eat bacon for breakfast, barbecue for lunch and a chicken fried steak for dinner any more. For me many of the problems that I thought were age related were really just lifestyle related.

Nap? Come on we all know you'll go jump on the bike and ride until dusk or later.
You're already living the life. How many weeks did you spend exploring North and South America on the bike? Your bucket's not filling up.

Re: 8 days a week

I have always been the thinnest male in my family. Started riding MX at 14 and rode at a pretty good clip in the woods with my buds until about eight years ago. It kept me in pretty good shape but the eventual aches and pains here and there convinced me that it was time to hang up my dirt only boots. I had a good run and lady luck smiled on me as in all those years I only suffered one clavicle and one wrist break. But in my late 50's and now early 60's I have finally began catching up to my brothers a bit in the belt size department. Slowing down and smelling the roses do seem to allow the calories to accumulate...

I'm with you Joe. Most folks don't truly appreciate the value of a good nap...

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
