Thoughts on Getting Older

Happy Wednesday to you!  This life was created to be enjoyed, but our bodies sometimes don't get those memos.  I found out that I have Osteoporosis in the top of my left femur-near the hip; my doctor emailed me about the results of my Dexa scan.  I have know I had osteopenia for years and have increased my walking because of it.  So today, hubby and I are going to a high end gym near us that accepts Silver Sneakers to check out their weights, trainers and facility.  I told hubby, who has a bad back, that we need to do it together.  It will help both of us.  So after we have breakfast, we will be heading out.
If you are not a senior, I can tell you that you need to be doing weight bearing exercises on a regular basis-several times a week. Thankfully weights can reverse many of the issues.
I'll let you know what we find out, but in the meantime take care of your body-it's the only one we've got.


  1. Sorry to hear that but glad you are taking action! Yes, a strong frame is critical!

  2. I agree with you! I was diagnosed with advanced degenerative disc disease about a dozen years ago, and have been working out several times a week since that time, with great results. All the best with your new program.

  3. Our Mom knows all about that osteoporosis. She has to be so careful not to fall. But chin up, keep walking and lifting those weights:)

  4. Good for you tackling this head on! Best wishes. :)

  5. Yes, getting older is not for the faint of heart, is it. My Mom lived until she was 90 & I'm not so sure living until that old is "up my alley" either. I'm glad I don't have to decide such things. :-) *hugs* Happy exercising with your beloved. xoxo
