Strength Training for Health and Happiness is what I call it. It makes me happy that I can do these kinds of things all these years. I think it is important for me to share what I do so it can help others.
Bodybuilding for Senior Citizens
Last fall I decided to increase my overall body strength—for health and happiness. Four months ago I started cutting down trees–I never did like the darned things anyway. For the first few weeks I was tired and had some sore muscles, but now I have no problems. I was having fun, but my purpose was, “Strength Training for Health and Happiness.”
Physical Exercise did Bring Me Health and Happiness
As the days and weeks passed, I found myself singing, and really enjoying the task. I found myself looking in the mirror for muscle enlargement. I have read that older people CAN build muscles—even at 81-years of age. Well, I gained 5-pounds—but I expect it might be from too many extra calories and too many extra siestas. My waist gained half an inch.
Body Enhancement is not Just for Young People
One of my goals is to coax people into looking after their health and happiness; with this on my mind, I went ahead and made a short video. My new camera is still too smart for me, so I used the old one. I was having so much fun with the task that I burst into song. My singing might sound like wind in the trees—or the moan of a death song of the tree spirits.
Happiness is Having Plenty of Firewood for Next Winter
Now I have lots of firewood and my trees are growing faster than I am cutting them. I have firewood to sell—but I don’t need that much health and happiness. I had better go lie down until that thought leaves this old goat.
