To stay Healthy
Two of my granddaughters, Anabelle and Emma Rose. Are there better reasons to stay healthy. I am fighting a battle that is at least average for my age. Things start to not work quite right. They start to slow down. Eating is fun. Always has been. Now it's not just eating to worry about but how much and what. Exercise is the only 8 letter 4 letter word I know of. Now it isn't whether or not, but how much. Vitamins and minerals are not just words any more but life-saving needs, especially in food. Gray hair is, thankfully, not a problem. An aching back is. Running? Not for years. There is no way to move this body gracefully. And I am not going to wear skimpy clothes so I don't scare anyone. OK. Here I am. Nowhere near where I thought I would be in this life. But in most ways, I am in a much better place than I deserve. Had I abused this body much more I wouldn't be here. Why is it so hard to change?
