Exercise. Subject for discussion...
(Iowa City, Iowa)
I don't know what happened to me. I retired 3 years ago. At 67, in July 2019 I did the 7-day 500 mile RAGBRAI bike ride after many months of hard training, and even a mild heart attack in April that year.
As soon as I finished the bike ride, I stopped all exercise, and I can't get started again. Now I sit in my lounger 12 hours a day, maybe walking a day or two for a couple miles.
I've gained 50 pounds in 2 years! I'm not doing my heart-diseased body any favors.
I tell myself I need to do something every day, but talk myself out of it most the time.
So, I'm curious, what kind of exercise are you doing? - looking for ideas. How much? How often?
Most significantly, did you ever have a hard time getting motivated and what did you do to start your engines again?
