While technically it is hump day it is also the anniversary of my birth 52 years ago. I really do find it hard to believe that I am 52 years old. Personally I don't think I'm old and if you ask those around me you may be told that I certainly haven't grown up. :) I know I am getting older, though as the body doesn't respond the way it once did. I may have to make a much more concerted effort at improving my health in order to continue to have a quality of life that I want.
Quality of life. To me that's the key. I want to do what I enjoy, but I realize that it must be in moderation and the good must be balanced by the not so good. Sure I can have some cake and ice cream for my birthday, just not half the cake nor a half gallon of ice cream! Not to mention I really then need to be physically active to combat that rush of calories. Fortunately I can ride my bike and that is a good thing that I enjoy that is also good for me.
So, I started this post thinking I would do a look back over the last year of the highs and lows, the accomplishments and misses, but not today. Maybe at the end of the year. Today I am going to enjoy what I can and do what I must and be thankful for those birthday wishes from family, friends and acquaintances.
Get on your bikes and ride!!!!
