There you have it, where I spend a great portion of my free time and money. Oh, and on the other side of the room is the other things I have to use occasionally, the washer and dryer!

Well I've been to the fitness center five days. On Friday I learned all the machines to do the lower body workout. All of these are machine based and boy have I lost a lot of strength in this area! I walked on the treadmill for 35 minutes(including cooldown) at a speed of 2.7 miles per hour. Just my luck there were two young women in their late 20's visiting the gym. They proceeded to start on the elliptical machine for about 25 minutes, then one machine down from me they started running on the treadmill, and I do mean running at about 5-6 miles per hour!!

Peridot & Sterling Oxidized Pendant
Was $45.00, now $31.00
Was 42.00, now 29.00
During the holiday break Ken surprised me by paying for the start up cost of a new fitness center close to our home, and I do mean close!
A Planet Fitness center opened approximately 2.5 blocks from our complex. I can go to our entrance and see the building. My exercise habits have been on a steady decline for several years, probably about five. I've also developed a lower back and neck problem where I'm losing space in between the vertebrae in both locations. This summer I walked as much as my back would allow.
In an effort to heal my body in a nonevasive way I have been going to a chiropractor for about three weeks for adjustments and massages. My assistant principal praised his methods and I decided to give it a try. So far the pain in my lower back has lessened and I can sit for extended periods without getting up like an 85 year old (I'm 56). My first massage was heavenly and I'm scheduled for another one this coming Friday.
It is my high hopes that with regular exercise to increase my flexibility, increase my cardio and the chiropractic, my general health will improve. I will keep posting on my progress and any ups and downs.
