    THIS WOMAN IS AWESOME! 104 (count 'em) years old and still going for it! Great attitude, great work ethic and a love for life - how can she possibly lose? :shrug:
    Oatmeal & prunes? Hell yes! I love oatmeal & eat it several days a week. Hard pass on the whisky :yuck: but everything in moderation if that's her thing - it works for her!

    There's a 60ish woman at my gym who climbs up & down ropes like it's nothing - that's pretty inspiring if I must say. Anyway Miss Ida should help us all "get up & moving" on a daily basis.

    as a bonus here's a song about not letting anything get you down. Enjoy! BTW The Black Keys better credit T-Model for shaping their sound & careers! Actually they do, so that's cool.

    Checking up on everyone! Are you eating/drinking healthy? Losing fat? Getting stronger/going longer/etc? Are you staying motivated? Let's all get the year started right! :yes:
    Personally, I injured myself about a month ago, but I'm healing up and am functioning at about 80 percent capability. But being 57 I'm eeeeeasing into going full-bore. :damnkids:
    My cardio goal is running a 15:20 two mile with no gassing at the end. It's on every page of my fitness calendar to remind me to stay focused. 15:18 sucks for a 30 year old but is pretty good for a 57 year old, so it's a challenging but reasonable goal. I mix up the two mile running with one mile runs and incline walking so I work a variety of breathing patterns and muscles worked. My strength/muscular endurance goal is 15 chin-ups with perfect form. Weight consistently under 165 should come as side benefit of what is to follow:

    CUTTING BACK ON UNHEALTHY SNACKING! :brood: It's not doing me any favors toward my fitness goals or general health. So I have to really kick myself in the ass about that! Swapping sweets for carrots and celery for my snacking should do it, but that's easier said than done.

    So let's hear some thoughts of those trying to stay healthy!
