After 40

Since I turned forty it has been all downhill.

If you read my blog you know that since our move, in January, I have been determined to get into shape. I tried running, but the pain in my feet and legs convinced me that I had to lose a lot of weight before I tried putting that much strain on them. For the past month and a half, CAL and I have been playing soccer several days a week for 45 minutes to an hour at a time. I really enjoy spending time with my son and seeing his game improve.

The part I don't enjoy is all the aches and pains that come that night. Some nights I wonder if I would wear a back brace things would be more comfortable for me. Aspen Medical Products has a complete line of braces, including neck braces, that I am sure would help me manage all my aches and pains.

Until the time that I have medical insurance or win the lottery (which I don't play) I will be suffering with my pains. Hopefully after I lose some weight my body will be more receptive to all the exercise. They say that exercise is the best medicine. I pray that they are right because I need some back pain relief, and soon.

At the age of 45, I totally get it. I can barely do 5 pushups. Ugh.
