Remember What’s Important remember                      Photo Credit~ Miran White

Life can get so busy we tend to forget what is really important.

Take each day as it comes.

Try to have Faith and believe it will get better.

It Can Improve Your Life

Exercise improves life in many ways, while keeping you young at heart.


This gorgeous scenic photo was taken by my niece, M. White. Thanks so much sweetie for allowing me to use your photos.

This is a photo of Fisher Peak in Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada. Fisher Peak sits at 9335 ft. altitude and the climb is 520 ft.

I know my niece’s husband has climbed to the top.  Wow!  What a hike!

Older adults are often hesitant  to exercise. They fear that physical activity may be too strenuous or even do them harm.

Research has shown that all older adults, from 50 to 90 years young, damage health far more by not exercising.

Fit or frail, adults of any age can benefit from physical exercise.

Talk with your doctor before starting any new physical activity.

Start slowly and you will be surprised just how quickly your strength and stamina develop.

Once you gain strength and experience this new energy, you will never want to be without it again.

Schedule workouts as appointments that simply cannot be missed.

I started my morning with spending 90 minutes at the gym. I am consistent and my body thanks me.

Invest in your health and your body will thank you.

A Wish

I wish all good things to come your way.  Have a wonderful weekend.

My Friday tip to you is to use exercise as a way to stay young.

I was at the gym early this morning and it really does make me feel good.

It keeps me feeling young, just might be those endorphins along with all that sweat.

A Journey

        The World is filled with people you can count on. Share your fitness journey.   


Mt. Thom’s lookout point is at an elevation of 484 metres and we did get to enjoy spectacular valley and mountain views.  What beauty we have in Beautiful British Columbia.

My beautiful daughter and I enjoyed a long hike on Saturday morning.  Our quality time that means the world to us.

A lot of uphill climbing.  Did I mention tons of sweat too?   :)  Oh I had my moments of wondering when we would ever reach the top.  We did it and we had fun too!

                The courage to be great lies deep within each of us.


Fitness is about the journey, not achieving perfection.


It’s A Trick

I always say I am not getting old.

I am only getting ‘more mature’.

I refuse to ‘get old’, although the numbers are adding up year after year.

Early this morning while at the gym I was being grateful for my endorphin rush.

This is the only body God has blessed me with and I am determined to take care of it as I do go through the aging process.

Have you done any physical activities today?

Have a terrific day and if you are able please do some kind of fitness.

Your heart and lungs will thank you for it too.

As a baby boomer I am more determined to try my best to stay fit.

Enjoy your day~

You Can’t Go Wrong

I will never give up.

Life throws us all curve balls.

I stumble at times and feel defeated.

My Faith and my family inspire me.

You inspire me by visiting my blog and I thank-you for that.

This morning I was feeling tired and a tad down in the dumps.

I gave myself that much needed nudge and did get my  5K Run done.

Needless to say I felt much better after enjoying the beautiful morning.

There is something about hearing the birds and watching the sun come up that sprinkle those endorphins all over me.

My fitness is something I have enjoyed for years and I know it helps me with stress and worries.

You can’t go wrong with love and inspiration from others.

I am  trying harder to take life a day at a time and enjoy the ‘moments’.  There is so much beauty all around us.

Being at the GYM early this morning gives me my endorphin high to enjoy my day.

Remember, you’re one workout away from a good mood.

I am an active baby boomer.

I wish all good things to come your way and please remember to take time just for yourself.
