An Air Dancer? Yes! Don’t you want to feel like your body could move and flow in any direction?
While there doesn’t seem to be an exact age, everyone eventually starts to say they are too old for something. When it comes to feeling healthy, being active, or moving, many adults hit a point in their life when they decide that how they are is how they are. Over the past few years, I have heard friends and family say many things such as:
- “Oh Keli, I can’t do that. I’m too old.”
- “I have never been able to bend that way.”
- “My left side is weaker than my right.”
- “I have always been heavy.”
Chose How You Age
Similar to losing weight, how much you move throughout your life is your choice. If you choose to continually feel like crap, be more sedentary than active, or eat more than you should, you will become that person.
When I was over 250 pounds, I had lots of aches – lower back, knees, and feet mainly – and I also was quick to get minor chest pain when I was suddenly “active”. I was 39 and – guessing – that I felt more like someone over 70 years of age.
Chose to Move
The picture that I continue to share really was what I needed. Seeing how heavy I was and constantly feeling shitty, I decided to start making changes. For me it was the gym and nutrition. It took me almost 3 months to really own both and now I know when I am off.
