Yep…it’s official…I’m old! My Tooele High School 30th Class Reunion is tomorrow! I’ll know how I compare to the other oldies in my class in less than 24 hours:) Hair cut and colored to hide the gray….check. Nails done…..check. New outfit….nope, couldn’t find anything I liked, so I’m wearing something old from my closet.
I don’t know if I like growing old. Don’t get me wrong, I love the elderly…I just don’t know if I want to be one. For some reason the dying before the “depends” stage would be my first choice. Second choice…..hmmmm before my top part touches my middle part and my middle part prevents me from bending over to tie my shoes. So pretty much before I am old. How old is old? Well, so far the older I get the further I push the “I’m old now” number back.
There are times I feel like I am still in high school and other times I feel like it was a life time ago. When I look in the mirror it is a reminder that age is creeping up on me….not as fast as some, but speedier than I’d prefer. I go to great lengths to slow down the clock. What do I do? Well, I do some kind of physical exercise everyday….I like to mix it up; bike ride, yoga, zumba (in the privacy of my own home only:), sit ups, push ups….oh yea don’t forget the arm “shaker” from “As seen on TV” I LOVE the Nu Skin‘s Galvanic Spa…I do a 5 minute face treatment every other day and my old dry skin is now moisturized all day and the fine lines…gone! I’m a conscious healthy eater without being fanatic…I have a weakness for french fries and chips. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and meat sparingly. Since my husband is a mighty hunter I only eat what he brings home and puts in our freezer, for example; elk, moose, buffalo etc….lean meats with NO antibiotics unlike the red meat from the store. The only meat I occasionally buy is chicken and fish. I’ve never been a caffeine or alcohol drinker and rarely drink soda of any kind. Water is my choice of fluids. When time permits I make a fruit smoothy in the morning and I take Pharmanex LifePak Nano supplements every morning and night. Since adding LikePak Nano to my diet my anti-oxidant score jumped up to 54,000…..if you are not familiar with that number….its a good one….and anti-oxidants slow down aging:)….I hope!
Oh…the most important thing one can do is LAUGH everyday….I do….mostly at myself, but a laughs a laugh.
