It’s A Hard Life, At Least I Hope So

Day 23 – Have I mentioned that gym life is difficult? Yeah, at least a few hundred times, I think. The upside is better health and, for some, a better looking physique. I pretty much gave up on that last part a good while ago.

I have noticed, though, that the harder I work, the harder I get. Some muscles groups are responding well, others not so much. . .yet.  Any lack of fitness training leads to loss of tone. It doesn’t matter if it’s for a few days, a few weeks, or much longer.

The older I get, the more I know I need to work hard to be able to maintain simple things like balance. Good fitness and nutrition leads to stronger bones, better digestion and metabolism, and even better rest.

I worked hard today at the gym; I felt better when I finished. Now that my mind is getting back into the habit of regular physical training, it is much easier to do the work and enjoy the results.
