Getting Fit after Retirement

 After I finished working and retired I was under the impression I would be so busy with all my hobbies that I would never miss working.

Well, yes I’m busy with my hobbies but I really miss my job!   BUT not for the reason you may think.  It’s the exercise I miss. Rushing about, being on my feet all day, walking, lifting, stretching, bending… all these things kept me fit.  Since retirement I’ve become a bit of a couch potato!  Most of my hobbies are sedentary which really doesn’t help my fitness.  Yes, I enjoy yoga but recently have become very lazy in my practise.

As my waistline increased and my weighing scales screeched, I decided to do something about it.

My new fitness regime includes Fast Walking daily, running up and downstairs plus a yoga routine.  The wonderful thing about yoga is anyone can do it, any age, you don’t need a huge amount of space nor any machines. It can be done on the yoga mat, in a chair or on the bed.

As an ex-yoga teacher, I know quite a few moves but I’m very rusty so need to start carefully and increase the exercises as I go along.

Yoga in the garden is wonderful

More walking

The other thing I need to do is get back to healthy eating.  During the winter I have put on the pounds as I’m sure we all do.  Now with spring arriving, I need to cut back on the heavy meals, puddings and chocolate.

So that’s me even busier for the next few months! lol 

Enjoy the Springtime and join me in getting fitter for the summer… and just because we want to.

Best wishes
