8) I am thankful for the opportunity to exercise…

Now, I have to tell you – I’m not big on exercise!  Actually, I used to be terrible about it.  Mainly because it isn’t much fun to do by yourself.  My new apartment building has a small exercise group that meets M, W, and F – for 40 minutes or so.  And, it has become fun!

We are exercising to a Richard Simmons tape that is made for us Senior Folks…and it does get your heart rate up…and then back down with the cool down exercises.

Not only is it good for my heart – but, it is also good for diabeties…

    I wish I had exposure to a group like that. I could DO exercise that way. I’m happy for you!

    Good for you! That sounds like fun. You’re right that exercising alone is just boring.

    Exercise is so much more fun with others, isn’t it?

    Good for you! Exercise is beneficial on so many levels — and it’s so much nicer when you can turn it into a social event! (And that Richard Simmons is so funny. . .)
