I would like to get more outside exercise and play time.  I love it once I get out there, but I continually have trouble making it a top priority.

I'm 65 and the sole caretaker 24/7 for my mother.  She is 93, wonderful  & has alzheimers. I used to walk 3+ days a week and felt great.  I can no longer leave her alone and have not been able to get the excercise. I pay for someone to come into the home for a few hours on one afternoon & take her to a center for care for1 day a week.  During that time, I need to do all the shopping & necessary errands. I've tried excercise, yoga, etc at home, but never manage to relax & get any benefit from it. This might be the key for me to kickstart a program that I can keep up.

After retiring and joining Silver Sneakers I go to my local recreation center 3-5 times a week and work out.  Not your standard workout, but fun classes with  our retirees. Zumba  and essentrics and yoga.

Finally I have a regular routine.

Our local rec center offers the Silver Sneakers yoga which I really enjoy once a week.  I take the basic Silver Sneakers another day of the week.  I find that it keeps me more mobile and flexible and I enjoy the group dynamics.
