Inspired by my parents!

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

I just got back from visiting my "Aged Parents." Dad is 91 and Mom will be 88 in January. Yet they lead a life more active than most people half their ages! Playing bridge, going to concerts, meeting with friends, watching sports, cheering on their grandchildren.... I went to the gym twice while I was there for a week, and we did several Spark videos with Nicole every day. Now that's the way to age gracefully! Nice job, FitBetty2 and Dr. Dad! Love you!!!

    That really is an inspiration. good to know there are people like your parents out there. I fear they are becoming fewer and farther between, those elder active people. Def something to strive for.

    Hi Mary, lovely to hear that you found your parents in fine fettle! Glad you got to the gym and had fun doing videos. My fit mum complained at the ripe old age of 83 that she was´nt too good at doing head-stands at yoga class any more - I nearly had a fit!! Now she has taken up Japanese drumming.... ha! Here´s to adventurous old age!
