Enough is enough

As far back as I can remember I’ve always been health and fitness oriented. I was always very active in sports. As a matter fact I was the point guard on my basketball team, ran track and field, was a volleyball setter, played shortstop and third-base and was a cheerleader. I remained active most of my adult life. Fast forward to my early twenties, marriage and three children later, the busyness of life caught up to me. One day I was trying on some clothes and kept looking in the mirror wondering why my clothes were not fitting like they used to, it was then I realized that my weight had gotten out of control and it was time to do something about it-enough was enough!! I could have come up with excuses not to workout, you don’t have time, you’re tired, or you simply don’t know what to do once you step into a gym.

Nothing but the facts

Excuses like these—and many more—are a big reason why 28 percent of adults age 50 and older are physically inactive. Reminder: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that adults exercise moderately for at least 150 minutes of per week.

I made up my mind

But what if you’re finally ready to ditch the excuses and commit to regular exercise? Is it too late? It’s never too late! Case in point, at 41 a coworker of mine dared me to enter the Muscle Mania bikini competition. I thought about it and used it as a milestone in my career to push my body to the limits. I made up my mind to train hard and get the proper rest and nutrition I needed to be successful. I finished in first place and won that competition at 41 years old!!
