FIT@50: Let’s Do This

FIT@50

Several years ago I began to journal my journey toward turning 50. It was intended to encourage a move for getting back into top shape. Instead, it became a reflection of maturing into the next 50 years.

So here we are almost 3 years since my 50th birthday, and although life has been a blessing, I’ve done nothing to restore my health other than relying on great genetics.

As the body would soon tell, living a sedentary work-from-home lifestyle eventually overcame DNA. Especially with a daily diet of ice cream and bags of Oreo cookies.

Like any reluctant 50+ year old guy, I delayed “that” physical for as long as I could. As anyone could guess, the visit didn’t go well, but was a long way from good.

Now I’ll spare you the results, except to say things have got to change, unless this heart wants an attack in a few short years. While there’s not much we can actually control, this is one thing I can definitely influence.

Leah & I have always been transparent in an effort to encourage people to be decent to others in all aspects of life. I feel moved to restart my FIT@50 in hopes of:

– Holding myself accountable
– Encouraging men to take their health serious at this stage
– Combining faith, marriage & life with a healthy balance
– Getting others to see the long-term effects of poor habits
– Returning to the joy of sharing my thoughts on anything from exercise to couch pillows (I said balance, remember?)

I promise, this isn’t a “gym rat” adventure. But I did return to that place I once loved. Except it was different because someone had made what used to be light weights, feel heavy and immovable.

Do Good,
Scott
