Getting old...

07 June 2012

"Old and Wrinkled"

After our time spent with the youth, I began realizing how old we are getting. Granted we are that much older than the teens (less than a decade) but after playing in their relay races, I hurt in places that I haven't hurt in years. My abdominal and inner thigh muscles twinge and ache in certain positions such as well I get up from a chair or from a laying position. What does this mean?

I think this means that I am out of shape! What adult can't say that? I'm not talking to you marathon or iron man athletes or frankly any athletes in general. I'm speaking to the general public. The ones who wake up at or before 6:00 a.m. for work and have to run to the store after a 9-10 hour day because the refrigerator is bare. The ones whose home is such as mess (like a tornado had just come through) that they don't host friendly gatherings like they once did. The ones who eat out one or two meals a day because it is convenient.

I never thought that I would be one of those people, but it turns out that I am. Out of shape, over-committed and messy. My priority of work and extracurricular activities has certainly taken over my time. So, where can I go from here? Well, I am going to start being more active whether that means I take a 20 minute walk at lunch or that I make time for the gym like when I am out of town this weekend. Tonight, for instance, Mr. Collier and I are playing church volleyball. He's gone for the last few weeks but due to other commitments I have never made it. So, here we go. One foot in front of the other.
