Be Active

Be Active~ (Reminds me of the Activia Brand Yogurt commercial for some reason? or a gut health commercial?)

I will be honest here I struggle with being physically active. Currently my pain in my joints and bones is through the roof. I know being inactive is only going to weaken muscles and cause more pain. How do I find the balance?

I think back to my much younger years when if I didn’t have my nose in a book I was very active. I used to bike, walk, swim. Heck I even tried out for the track team. I found though that my weak ankles and asthma that I was better off in a fast walk so Track team wasn’t for me.   I did gymnastics for awhile in 5th grade. Then it came time to perform in front of everyone and I decided I could enjoy gymnastics but having to perform in front a crowd wasn’t an activity I wanted.

I am very active in other areas, I love to learn new things. I really enjoy reading. I consider myself a life long learner.  I am active in breaking the mental health stigma. I believe the stigma keeps many from getting much needed help before it is too late. I also actively participate in advocating for children’s well  being.

At my age of between 57 and 58 I look around and think I wish I was as active as others my age. Then I see ladies in their 70s etc.. in the news for their health and activities. I want that. I guess I better get off my butt and get active!!

 

 

Five Minute Friday: Active  ~ This post was written a week into knee replacement recovery and a few days after receiving our first foster child.  I wasn’t able to be very physically active but my mind was going non stop

  1. I understand oh so well what you’re talking about here. As a child and younger adult, I was very active then I began to feel bad. Was diagnosed with arthritis and fibromyalgia. We have to keep on though, even on days that our body isn’t cooperative, we still have to keep our brain active. Thanks so much for linking up at the Wednesday Writing Prompt 8.
