Me at 64

Me at 64

Staying healthy is no secret. Eat right and exercise, that's what they have been telling us for years. Funny how that's all it takes and it's not that hard.

When I first started to workout I would look in the mirror and think there's no way at the age of 58 I'm going to be able to have a well toned body. But here I am at the age of 64 and in the best shape of my life.

Working out with weights 3-4 times a week and watching what I eat (most of the time) keeps me in constant amazement at what the mirror now reveals to me.

I'm not a fanatic about it, in fact I would say I'm kinda laid back about the whole thing. Only take a little of the bad stuff every now and then. I think if you try to stay on a diet you are bound to fail. You need to let your cravings have a little of what they want or they will overcome you and you will find yourself sitting there naked with ice cream all over you wondering what happened.

I work out about one hour 3 to 4 times a week and feel really guilty if I skip a day. However I do give myself a break every 3-4 months for about a week.

As far as eating, I keep my calorie intake to 2,000 or less a day. That's what they tell us to do so that's what I do and it works.

Do those two simple things and you can keep on keeping on.
