    730 Days

    Today is the 730th consecutive day of my "No Excuses" exercise regimen.

    My MDR is 32 minutes but I frequently exercise much longer or do two different things in a day. That includes walking fast with hiking poles, biking, weight training, treadmill, or swimming. Swimming is my favorite and my body's favorite. I usually swim for over an hour.

    OCD is a dominatrix. Not wanting to break the consecutive day count has been a positive driving force. Living where I do (location, location, location) has been very good for me. I live in a small (207 homes) retirement community with a small gym and Junior Olympic outdoor pool. I am a 2 minute walk from the facilities.

    A friend says I have to accept my body. I say HELL NO! Accepting is for wimps. I have seen acceptance and I don't like it. Besides, I have to stay strong to move my audio equipment around.

    Tomorrow will be day 731.

    Congrats and more power, to you.

    Congratulation Dizzie, that is a great accomplishment.

    I spend as much time licking my wounds from my brain writing checks my body keeps cashing.

    No excuses means no nap after sinus surgery. Go to the gym instead. Donate blood and no strenuous exercise for 72 hours. They can't be serious. After donating over 13 gallons I know my limits.

    Re: 730 Days

    Congratulations! It takes commitment and dedication.

    I have been working out 5-6 days a week for the last 11 years. I had a life threatening scare as I traveled internationally quite a bit for business and let my health suffer; it became a lower priority. Today, my rest heart rate is in the high 40s as I swim, run, weight train and stay very active. I do, however, still enjoy good wine!

    Cheers! And, keep going!

    Well done Mike. I thinking working out most days instead of every is just as healthy. In fact it might be more healthy by giving a body time to heal. That depends on the intensity of the exercise. Cross training also helps a body heal.

    I have always been active but it gets harder as I get older. My problem is if I give my body time to heal I also give my mind time to find an excuse. Hence my "no excuses" exercise every day regimen.

    Thx D!

    What’s interesting is that I’ve always taken care of myself but it took a few years of significant international travel in which I let myself go a bit for the scare to take place. But it’s all good now; I’m retired in my 60s with my priority being taking care of myself so that I can be present for my wife and have the ability to enjoy my retirement.
