The way I see it

Wednesday, January 1, 2014


I had the best time yesterday!  I went on a non-date!  I went out for lunch and a walk with a man that I am not dating.  We are just friends.  I do like him and maybe I would rather be on a regular date with him but that is just not going to happen any time soon!  So non-dating it is!
Well, there is a lot to be said for non-dating.  You don't have to get obsessive with your hair and make-up.  It doesn't really matter what you wear.  You can go on a last minute date without showering!  You are not being judged, approved or disapproved!  It's not a real date!
  We went for a really nice walk.  I could basically talk about anything I want because I don't have to impress this man.  So I showed him the biggest house that we passed and told him that I would love to live in that particular house.  But, then I changed my mind when I saw a smaller, cozier one with a fenced in yard for my dog!  I asked him if he could please buy the house for me.  I could ask him anything.  We are non-dating!
  Then we went for lunch.  He treated.....the gentlemanly thing to do.  I sort of offered but kind of knew that he would treat.  If he let me pay I would have been upset on this non-date.  We went for Chinese food.  It was so good!  And he said "this is a non-date so you can drink your soup from the bowl"  (plastic take-out bowl.)  Well I did and I felt so comfortable eating with him because whether he likes me or not, it doesn't matter.  We are non-dating!
I think I know most of the dating rules but I am still trying to figure out the rules of non-dating.  Does one kiss after a certain number of non-dates?  Does that make it a date?  Well,  I guess only time will tell and a few more non-dates!  We did hug good-bye and I did ask him to take me to the Bahamas for a non-date vacation!  I can ask for anything!  He will probably say no but who day he might say "Yes!"

p.s.  for all of you non-daters out there here is a song of inspiration for you........

Strength Training

It is extremely important, especially the older we get, to do some form of Strength training.  Whether you use machines (my least favorite), resistance tubing and bands, free weights, or your own body weight, strength training is a must to maintain muscle and bone strength!   Having strong muscles and bones gives you the ability to perform Activiities of Daily Living with ease.   Activities of Daily Living include climbing stairs, getting in and out of a car, picking up groceries or a grandchild and to have strong footing to stop a fall!
The benefits of strength training are endless!  It will lower your blood pressure, lower your blood sugar, decrease depression and basically make you a healthier person.  Ladies, how did you do on your Bone Density Test?  If your results were not as good as you expected, don't worry, we can reverse those bad results.  Of course listen to your doctor, BUT I will tell you that starting a strength training program is the best thing that you can do to reverse those bad results!!!!!
Remember, always check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.

ps  I mentioned to listen to your doctor but I have to say that at this point in time I am extremely undecided on taking calcium supplements and the Boniva type drugs.  I do agree that taking a  Vitamin D  supplement is extremely important if you are deficient as well as getting an adequate supply of calcium in your diet.

Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.

"Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure."  quote by Joseph Pilates
"We retire too early and we die too young, our prime of life should be in the 70’s and old age should not come until we are almost 100." quote by Joseph Pilates

pss  I am not a doctor.  I am a certified personal trainer.  Always check with your doctor before starting any exercise program and before taking any supplements!  Advice given is my opinion based on my experience and what I have researched.
