Good to hear your routine is working out for you. I know that feeling of well being you are talking about. Although one must pursue a balance within all forms of exercise, there is nothing quite like the feeling of “STRENGTH” that can be acquired though resistance training. It’s very invigorating, despite age and something that can be mastered well into our old age...(sooner or later) I really must get back into it!!!
My new job is going well…So far so good…I’m doing long shifts & being new to the game, am finding it quite draining. None the less, I seem make a good career. Basically I’m working in Disability Support. I think I mentioned it some time ago. I simply just kept pursuing it, & eventually go into it. I was kind of thrown in the deep end straight up but managed to get myself into more of a realistic setup with lower need clients & so on. At this stage of the game, I seem to of overcome most of my fears in the job & am can see the potential for a career, if I can stick it out a little further and keep an open mind.
It is much better than being flogged with some whip in a factory or having to lift weights all day for a living…
…Seriously, we all got to take the bad with the good I guess. If I can manage to wake up another day & soldier over the next hill, I’m thinking the road might flatten out some…That’s about where am at for the moment...I can say that at this stage of the game…I am liking the job!
Thanks for popping back in anyways…good to hear from you, & your kind words at that. I have to agree with your comments on the Big Old U-S of A. Although Aussies may be right for now…I’m not sure about the GEN-Ys and the 60Billion debt they have racked up on credit…seems to be an issue with the current western attitude, and that of the next gen…ect…Nothing against your travels…BUT…there seems to be this emphasis on everyone wanting to travel the world and achieve much more before they have the means to do so. Students leaving uni with massive debt before having even started in life & most kids in general just expecting things to be there for them. It can’t go on the way it is…but I am sure budgets will be cut to meet the needs of those that can’t go without because they are more deserving…Yadda Yadda…I guess this is where I will suck it up & solider on...
Enjoy it while it lasts like you say. I Have treated myself to a rather large Telescope!...one I have wanted for years & it will be here any day now. I’ve also turned our house into a small tropical forest with house plants everywhere…(has been a really healthy boost to the place)…We have upgraded most of our furniture & are now almost ready to STOP…& start sinking our money into much the same things you mentioned. (Practical things!)…I don’t mind saying though…That now when I find myself staring into space…I’m going to be doing it in style…& about bloody time too
I hope you continue to gather more strength with each training session Yogi. Despite what we put in the bank…nothing is going to beat that feeling of well being & you’re sounding like you’ve been being well
I hope you & yours are well...your the man Yogi!
