I have kept up my fitness activities over the last few months, but I am definitely ready to join the Drop It Like It’s Hot Summer Challenge in my quest for lifelong health and fitness.
I am a long time member of the Red Hat Society, and I love to have fun! But I can’t play all the time.
I have several close relatives who died of obesity-related diseases.
I made a commitment to myself many years ago that would not be my destiny.
Sparkpeople is my go to place to lose some weight and reactivate my exercise routine and add regular strength training without overdoing it and getting really sore muscles.
I am not as young as I used to be, and I need to moderate my exercise and build muscle at a slower pace. I realize now that strengthening muscle mass, especially in the lower body, is very important to prevent falls as we age.
