Rebe_J Posted June 30, 2016 Report Share Posted June 30, 2016 I was up to "here" with being sick and tired of being sick and tired, when I received an email from NF. It was a last chance offer to join the Academy at the old price. I did some reading and decided to sleep on it. (I tend to be a bit impulsive about buying fitness programs--I have several that do nothing but take up space on my hard drive or on a shelf.) I took the plunge. Joining the Academy includes access to the NFA Facebook group. I don't do FB, so here I am. Short background: I'm 63 and extremely de-conditioned. I've had some medical problems related to a surgical procedure with serious complications. I was given a clean bill of health with no restrictions a long time ago; I can no longer use that excuse. I am carrying around a lot of extra weight and that's beginning to really mess up my hips, knees, ankles, and feet. I work at a desk job (sports accountant--AKA "bookie") which doesn't help. On top of that, many of my current interests outside of work are also relatively sedentary. I know what it is like to be strong and lean and fit. Anyway, I remember what it was like back in the dark ages. I don't expect to return to that level of fitness (well, part of me does, but deep down, I know that's unrealistic). I do know I can make some changes that will improve my health, strength, stamina, attitude, etc. And…I also know deep down that I have to start at the beginning. I look around and see women my age and older who are very active and not slowed down (much) by aches and pains. I think to myself, "I wish I could be like them." It's time to stop wishing and start doing. A year from now I will regret not starting today. 3 Quote Rebe_J Daily Battle Log: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/84884-rebe_j-joins-the-academy/ Link to comment
