Three weeks ago, I re-posted a YouTube video that I had seen at Ronni's blog, Time Goes By: What It's Really Like to Get Older as Older Ladies. (I failed to credit JB Lockhart for having brought the video to Ronni's attention.) I first started reading Ronni's blog over ten years ago. I must say that, as a daily dose, I would get bored with the whole premise of that blog; but, occasionally, I go by on a daily basis to see what's happening with Ronni. You see, she and I struck up an online friendship. We are close to the same age (she's three years the younger), but we've lived completely different lives, so we've had a lot of interesting things to share with one another.
Ronni was a professional in the television industry; thus, she tends to structure her blog by bringing in "experts" on a regular basis (music, health, legal, LGBT have been the subject matter of a few of her, for a time at least, regular contributors.) One of her more popular regular features is her Saturday "column". On Saturdays, Ronni shares "Interesting Stuff" - stuff that has usually been brought to her attention by one of her hundreds, yea thousands, of readers. (I recognize the names of 50-100 of her faithful readers/commenters.) Today was no different. Ronni posted, Interesting Stuff: 5 July 2014.
One of the videos featured in Ronni's current posting is 23 and 1/2 hours. Although I know of no readers of my own blog who "need" this video (everyone in our family is an exerciser), I post the video, and include Ronni's lead-in to it, for my own future reference - to help motivate me. I, myself, exercise; but, I am (and have been for the past 21 years) over weight. (Okay...make that fat if you insist!) Obviously, I need to take a leaf from either of HH's and my daughters' books!
On to Ronni's posting.
NUMBER 1 BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR HEALTH
I'm acutely aware that I spend a lot of time here since I've lost so much weight [40 pounds - CC] and become an exercise convert reminding you of the astonishing health benefits of moving around a lot.
Not that I want to become a bore about it, this video animation has been sitting around on my computer for nearly a year and it is one of best exercise motivators I've seen. Take a look. From Dr. Mike Evans.
