I really believe (now) in getting fit. But I'm on the opposite side of what people see as unfit, meaning, I've always been too skinny.
May I Continue? Some people would want to throw rotten avocados at me now
I did a basic screening at an outdoor promo event, given by a small gym. The screener/ instructor was sort of shocked at my low BMI or whatever, and poor posture. And I have osteoporosis, not osteopenia, already at age 52.
Last year I tried for the first time, a weight bearing class at the gym, group with music designed along with it. I love it. And- there's a whole range of ages and body types in class. I'm there with the same goal as the guy who is very very overweight. Isn't that interesting?
Never thought I would like a class, but having someone else make the schedule sure helps me get there, rather than limit me. And having people get familiar in class, knowing that 'Carol' and "Jennie" will be there and say hi for example, is nice!
So, since I'm kind of looking for a job (UGH!) and do believe that exercise and good diet are important, in general, but there's always big room for improvement on my part, "here" I am.
