At age 77 and having been a runner for 36 years, I just broke a bone in my foot while running.  A bone scan showed osteoporosis and I've been advised to "walk, don't run".  This is going to kill my brain!  I'd love a fitbit so I know how much exercise I'm getting when I'm walking and how much I need to walk to get enough excercise to maintain my physical conditioning.

I could really use a fitbit.  My pedometer doesn't track everything a fitbit does.

I'll be 80 next month, and wish I would have done a better job of saving and investing, but I'm still okay. I'm healthy and very active. I ride 100 -125 miles or more eaach week on my Trek road bicycle, and love riding. It saved my life by taking my mind off my grief after my wife died six years ago. It made me concentrate on the road and the ride and not on grief. I'm fortunate enough to live in southern Florida where I can ride all year. Yes, I've been hit a couple of times and broken some bones, but they heal and then I'm back on the bike again. My feeling is that I can only die once, and if the Army didn't kill me, then I have a pretty fair chance of making it a few more years. I've never smoked, and haven't had alcohol in over 37 years. Every time my docotr tells me I'm too fat, I tell him I'm going to have to get an older fatter doctor. No, I don't need a Fitbit; I use an Apple watch.

Exercising is the key

so step up your activity

Cut the carbs and sugar too

soon you will see a healthier you

 

As we age we tend to slow

We need to keep that healthy glow

Keep the mind and body strong

Listen to me, I'm never wrong

I am retired and walk to stay healthy. I would love to be able to track my steps! If only I had a Fitbit!

I wish I had stayed healthier in my younger days; exercising and eating smaller portions. I'm 65 now I'll be in my first race of the season; "Throo the Zoo."   It's easier in the summer to stay in shape, I LOVE Hiking with my Doberman Pinscher.  I also try to eat healthier, but about once a month I have to have a Butterfinger Blizzard.

 

Anyway I would love to have a FitBit!  I don't even know if I'm doing this right.
