Not A Day Older
Mark and I were talking yesterday about not feeling our ages. I haven't felt my age for so long I forget that I'm getting older. I don't necessarily feel young, but I describe it as not feeling even one day older than the day before.
If I had to look back and pinpoint when I started feeling this way it would have to be when I got healthy. Health to me means #1 a healthy bodyweight, #2 a diet based in nutrition, #3 a strong and capable body (with muscles that do what the are supposed to do...work!), #4 loving the things that I do, loving life. Health is the fountain of youth.
Oh sure, do I feel stiff and achy sometimes, yep! But I don't remember a time when I didn't feel stiff and achy! I can tell you this....I can't remember the last time I was sick since I lost weight (I wrote about it in a blogpost though...it was 2007). Of course when I see pictures of myself now compared to a few years ago I see myself getting older, but I don't feel it, not even a day.
