Midlife crisis or long overdue change? Week 4

First of all my apologies, I wrote this on Saturday, had a phone call saved it as a draft, then forgot to click publish.

Last week was a week of doing a 10km walk everyday, no trip to the gum. I chose to hit the streets, paths, shoreline and hills. The hills were the challenging part, but necessary. This week is 3 trips to the gym, and 3 days of outdoor power walks. As to getting into shape my waist is now equal to my weight, each is at 91, 91cm for the waist and 91kgs. So my question does that mean I have achieved perfect symmetry and balance? 😛

Next week I will be adding some upper body strength training to my routine, as well as a few exercise to tone the middle, so any suggestions? Just please remember when making suggestions, I am 53 not 23.

  1. Planks are a good for the midsection. Better than sit-ups or crunches, and they work other parts along with your abs.

  2. Hey there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a honest price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

    • I have it hosted on WordPress.org. listed a few programs I use in putting my posts together. The 3rd program on the list is an image resizer, which can cut the image size by up to 95%. This will make a huge difference in your load times.
