This Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine is a little special for all of us born in 1970. This year we will be turning 50-year-old. As every year passes, we learn to appreciate and enjoy the things that matter more and what life has to offer. By choosing how we live our life, we can have an impact on our health and our life standard. It does not have to be hard and unpleasant. Simple choices can have a great impact. Leave the car at home and walk more, take the stairs and not the elevator. If you do not exercise regularly, this is the perfect time to look for something that will not only make you healthier and happier but also will see you singing and dancing into the second half of your life. You do not need a Gym pass, private trainer or expensive kit to see amazing results. You can go to the nearest park and perform your moves at the widely available outdoor gyms. Or do like many of us, use the back garden from spring to winter and the living room or garage floor during the wet and cold days. Simple exercise programs, planned for 6-8 weeks at the time for different seasons, keeping them interesting. Believe you me, the oldest and simplest moves are still the best. Build up to 10 push-ups on your toes or knees, before summer and you will feel like a champion, half a pull-up builds up to a whole and then a couple, amazing results. Squatting with your own body weight, find some stairs to jog up and walk down. A single dumbbell or a kettlebell can help you perform multiple moves. By using light weights and slow controlled movements, your bicep and tricep will grow like a spring onion. Walk – Walk – Walk, it is not overrated. If you have a smartphone, it can tell you how many steps and how many miles/km you have covered in a day, week, month and a year. That in itself can be a competition where the winner is you! Want to be part of the great Parkrun experience, start today with a walk, build up to a short jog, then slowly add some meters and before you know it, you have completed the 5K jog. Swimming, simply the best. When it comes to food, we should eat everything we want! it is just the art of not wanting everything, that can be hard to adjust to.
Give your self some Love this Valentine, make the move to a healthier and happier life.
We are officially on the road with the club “over 50”, stay tuned for some moves.
