I hated the sounds and actions of becoming an old man.
- But the way I had treated my body for decades, I was getting old far too young.
That just didn’t sit well with me. At 54, I felt 75. All I did was go from sitting inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office to sitting in the air conditioning in my house feeding my face. I’ve never been much of an athlete so I really had no idea what exercise programs were like. But they seemed like a heck of a lot of work to me. And that just wasn’t my idea of a good time. Yet, if I didn’t change my ways, all that stuff I wanted to do still was off the table. The idea of hobbling or waddling my way around for the rest of my life was no good. So I stared by simply standing at my desk in the zone controlled HVAC. Then, I got out of the air conditioning at lunch and went for a walk. When I got home at night, instead of hitting the recliner in the air conditioning, I went for another walk. Along the way, I changed my diet and cut out the stuff that was making me fat. The next step was actually working out. But I just didn’t like the idea of going to a gym. So I put a gym in my basement. I even called the HVAC company to have them install a ductless heat pump so I would have quality heating and air in my new home gym. I’m a whole new man these days and am actually starting to feel younger than my age thanks to taking better care of myself.
