Feeling my age...frustrating!
Thursday, August 22, 2019
For years I have always had an abundance of energy and for being 67 I still have it however this year I have really felt myself slowing down and feeling the aches and pains of an aging body.
Chasing my 21 month old great granddaughter around and pushing her in her little car is an activity I love to do however today I had to sit and take a rest and let hubby go for a round with her while I recovered. I never expected it to creep on me like this and I am hoping I can counteract the process by amping up my power walks and strength training workouts. Thing is, they are tiring me out now and before they used to invigorate me.
It is frustrating to know that I must slow down when my mind says "keep it up" and the body says "take it easy". I hope I will be able to find a happy medium somewhere between my urges to push beyond my limits and what the body tells me when it says take a break. I won't do anything to injure myself but I feel there has to be more life to me than what I have been able to do lately.
