MINDING YOURSELF
« on: July 31, 2022, 02:24:30 pm »
Did a fitness test during the week with our kids mate .She had access to loads of yokes .Top score is 100 thats an Olympic athlete for my age I should score about 65 add in my weight I should be down below 50 .I scored 18 .I was shocked she wasn't she says Transport Providers and Office workers score low .She asked me when was the last time I walked two miles .I had to think probably 5 years ago on Holiday .Its surprising the amount of workers who go from bed to car to office to car to sofa to bed .Sometimes you dont think of it .It just becomes normal .Might be worth thinking about our health .

At 67 and 122kgs I can barely put on my socks--right foot fine but left dodgy ,obviously result of 30 years driving an automatic--try and walk at least 3k a day plus another 3 to and from pub--definitely could be described as a WALKING DISASTER ! Try and visit local pool 3 days a week  --

Have a dodgy heart totally out of synch with tabs to sedate---stopped smoking 30 a day 20 years ago( after taking 3 hours to change a tyre) Quack says I am better off without fags--blood pressure 120/80 and cholesterol below 5 ---so the body seems fine but mind fucked -work 4/5 a day to keep occupied and keep away from pub !

So any of you lucky enough to have a "squeeze"give them a cuddle and rejoice !

John download a pedometer on your fone
Try do minimum 10k steps a day if you can.
A lot of people try do a minimum 20k steps a day but I reakon 10 is a good start..have it on in the background all day and see wat it's at at end of the day

Also a good stroll...ya feel great after it..clears the head

I used to have great eyesight.  Then I worked in an office for the best part of 10 years in front of a computer screen.  My eyesight went downhill from there. I need glasses now to read my phone or a book. Doesn't seem to be getting any worse though. Why, did you crash into something on your roller skates?

I can't drive at night for very long anymore.  The glare off the headlights is too much. Ever since my pandemic break for nearly 2 years I simply cannot go back to nights. Fook that.

Yeah! that effin glare from night traffic and I nearly creased a guy in all black who just stepped off the pavement….You can now get a Magoo  front windscreen fitted at Glass Fix that has +2 vision and anti glare. Its expensive but you can get a 50% grant ifin you are over 65…You also get a discount on your insurance..
