Yah, that didn’t happen! Now I’m a few months away from my fifty-first birthday and my goal is basically the same. So what’s different and what am I doing to reach my goals? Glad you asked… I’ve been skinny most of my life. So much so the other kids made [...]
So here we are in midlife and we are making healthy changes to our daily routine. If you have been exercising your entire life I have a new found respect for your dedication. My wife Cat has been way more consistent on exercise than I have. For me it has been hit or miss for most of my life and now I am in catch-up mode. I’ve put on more weight than I should have and now it’s time for a change. We are slowly implementing an exercise routine into our morning activities and we will be documenting our journey back to a healthy level of fitness. I’ve known many people in my lives who have simply declined in ability and I would like to say it is through no fault of their own, but I don’t know if that is actually true or not. I think the better we take care of ourselves the better our changes of sustaining a lifetime of enjoyable activities. So as far as making significant changes to my health, it’s game on!
We have a passion for traveling. It doesn’t matter to us if it’s a day trip, a weekend getaway, or an extended excursion. It’s easy as we get older to put aside travel for the familiarity and comforts of home. It seems to move into a natural progression of less socialization and more isolation. But we are social beings and whether we realize it or not we like being connected. There’s no better proof of that than social media. However, we challenge you not to become an armchair tourist; just watching the world from your couch. In fact be a traveler and not a tourist; get out, meet people, and most of all – enjoy life. Visit our Travels page to see our excursions, learn from our tips, and stay young.
It seems everyone these days has recipes on their website, and well we are no exception. However, we meal prep. What that means is that every Sunday we make all of our meals for the entire week; except for Sunday (ironic isn’t it). Sunday is our “cheat” day. We eat whatever we want on Sundays. Having a chance to indulge actually helps keep us on track during the week, which for us means eating healthy meals Monday through Saturday. Most of our recipes are designed to make six portions. that’s one meal a day for six days. You can double it for two or do what we day and make two recipes so we have the same meal every other day (changing from week to week). It’s simple to do, easy to cook, and most of all requires very little effort to reheat during the week (as I thank the inventor of the microwave). We will be adding recipes every week so check back often.
