Day One #MFRWAuthor #Stayfit

Anyone who works at staying fit knows the syndrome – life is never static, and keeping healthy turns out to involve an endless series of starting over.

Today, it’s Day One after a fun three days at The Golden Nugget and The Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas (well, no end of exercise, between all the dancing and the walking), and also Day One of changing up our timing.

Palo-Duro-Adriana-300x200Summer has arrived. Mimosa sweetness fills the air and the heat is intense. Ten AM bike rides are no longer an option – we’ve got to get up early and ride before breakfast to have a comfortable cruising temperature. It’s only 9:30 as I write this and already 87 degrees – we took our ride (ten minutes, to ease back into the routine) at 7:30, when it was only in the high seventies. This afternoon, instead of walking, we’ll hit the pool around 3 PM. (pic above is Palo Duro Canyon, TX, November, 2012).

Today is the first day of the rest of our lives…

 

Time to Play!

Blogging about what we love

20150605Fremont StreetFreemont Street Any time I feel like I might be crazy or off the charts, The Fremont Street Experience sets my perspective to rights, so we always try to catch it when we come to Vegas. Usually we’re here on a weeknight – the crowds last night were so thick it was hard to see the impromptu acts along the sidelines. Or maybe just hard to distinguish the actors from the crowd! Gotta love Las Vegas.

Triple Crown Fever I may have to eat my words (it’s happened before) – I truly think this is the year of the Triple Crown. There’s always racing luck, but American Pharoah looks like he has what it takes to win the Belmont. Can’t be there this year (LOVED our trip to the Belmont Stakes in 2001), but you can bet we’ll be glued to the TV this afternoon and hoping!

Dancing Then we’ll top the evening off by going dancing. Did I mention we’ve been taking dance lessons all winter, twice a week most weeks? Time to put our moves on the dance floor in the city that never sleeps. Might sleep late in the morning though…

 

Focus #MFRWAuthor #Health

Stay healthy? Here’s hoping! As we’ve been evaluating our purpose and focusing our writing and marketing energies after our three month break, we recognized that our highest value, what we prize most in life, is health. It undergirds everything else. Without it, none of the things we value and enjoy are possible.

We work hard to stay healthy. We eat a balanced diet, use fresh foods, and avoid excessive sugars. We spend at least ten to fifteen hours a week in some form of exercise, including core strengthening, weights and aerobics. We exercise our brains through staying curious, studying new things that interest us, traveling, learning new dances, working puzzles and playing brain games. No matter how hard we’re working, we take breaks, relax, get out and enjoy nature, and just chill. And yes, having hot sex is on that list.

When we were younger, I think we were more likely to take health for granted. Well into the second half of our lives, we know it’s a precious resource. We’re passionate about this, and we’ll be sharing more about this passion in future blog posts. Stay tuned.

A sample of what we love about staying healthy: Hiking at Bell Rock, Sedona, last January.
