When you’re falling awake
And you take stock of the new day
And you hear your voice croak
As you choke on what you need to say –
Well, don’t you fret, don’t you fear
I will give you good cheer
Life’s a long song
Life’s a long song
If you wait then your plate I will fill…

— Jethro Tull, Life’s A Long Song

Discussing health, fitness, yoga, fasting, Keto and life after sixty. I want to encourage older folks to exercise, to get outside, to explore and to keep moving – and most importantly, to keep our sense of humor! Trying to focus on positivity and resilience while navigating the twists and turns of life and dealing with issues of tinnitus which the CDC says approximately 48 million Americans and nearly 477 million worldwide suffer with.

Blizzard of ’78 and Ice Storm of ’98

As I sit in my office typing this post, a very messy ice storm is happening outside my window.  Though I can't really describe it as "raging" -- it certainly is a (cold) mess.  Thankfully at this moment there doesn't seem to be any winds blowing all these ice covered...

I am not perfect

I am not perfect

I am not a perfect Keto-er, unfortunately. I try. I try really hard but … I’m not perfect. For example, sometimes, after dinner, I’ll have a Hershey Kiss. That may not sound like much but one Hershey Kiss could turn to two. That still may not sound like much, but I’m...
