Getting Fitter After 50

So much of getting fitter after 50 if you ask me is about the mental and emotional and spiritual. Not solely the physical.

The mistake is setting a condition that you have to achieve in life before you’ll become happy.

Like: “I’ll buy that new skirt when I lose 10 pounds.” Buy the skirt now!

Getting fitter after 50 requires having the courage to make these kinds of changes.

It’s the mental game that has an impact now.

In my life I’ve decided that I can’t rely on other people to tell me what’s right or wrong or what I should do and how I should live.

That’s the bottom line after 50:

Having the confidence to go against the grain of what’s popular in the mainstream.

To do what you know is right for you regardless of whether others think it’s right.

So much of success after 50 lies in trusting yourself.

More in the coming blog entry about trusting your gut or trusting your intuition.
