My husband and I both do, we're not "gym" people, we prefer outdoor activities, and do have a few indoor workout options, wii, other videos. We are getting ready to retire and move from Chicago burbs to Tucson. Our plan to do a lot more than we do now, might have to be really early to beat the heat, but we're early risers and it shouldn't be an issue

It comes in waves. I'll go through phases of several weeks when two hours/day doesn't seem like enough, followed by days when I have to pry myself off the couch.

We all have things we love to do... yours is exercise.
It is normal for you, and that is all that matters.

When I was in my forties I worked at a place that offered their employees free use of the gym 24/7. One of the best thing was that my job was in the heart of downtown. I was at the gym a lot. I mean a lot. If I went downtown I went to the gym after shopping. They gave us lockers, which I kept all my gym supplies. I would get up early in the morning ON WEEKENDS and go to the gym. On holidays I was at the gym. If I had a minute I would be at the gym. It was like I was addicted to exercise, I couldn't stop, nor did I wanted to stop.
Ok now I'm in my seventies, I have that same rush, that same desire. I just want to exercise. Do a five minute boost here, another five minute boost there. Mind you I already worked out for, anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes already.
I want to lose weight, yes, but that's not why I want to exercise so much. I want to exercise because I enjoy it, a lot.
My question: am I the only one who ever felt this way, especially over 50 year of age? Is this normal?

Tip to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.
