Doing more for less.
I am taking Attia’s book with me on vacation next week. Gave one to the training staff at the YMCA. I have raised two sets of kids, 2 boys mostly by myself, coached all the sports, 3 girls with their mother. Wow, boys and girls are different. One girl told me last month she considers me her father, and I didn’t meet her until she was 15, she is 29. Always had strong legs but as I lifeguard at the Y and see the old guy legs and I do Belgian split squats around the pool on your advice, and the rowing machine hard and lifting. My oldest son got out of the People’s Republic of Massachusetts with his wife and 3 kids to a beat up house he is fixing on 20 acres in Tennessee with plenty of deer and are homeschooling and he just got his master’s electrician license in 2 states. They are much happier. Rode my BMW motorcycle 3500 miles in 9 days from New England to Tennessee to visit. You are giving good advice, Mike, based on my perspective at 71. I keep at the gym. My wife runs the Y and is 12 years younger so I have to hang. But next week it is Mexico, will still hit the pool and gym. Good job, Cerno.
Happy Birthday Cerno! I appreciate all that you share and wish you great health and spiritual prosperity.
As a 54 year old, rings perfectly true. We may enter each stage of life inexperienced to the challenges we will face in it, but one can be better prepared with sage counsel along the way.
Good read, thanks for taking the time to share
You know, I turned 49 this year and never worked as hard in getting / staying in shape than I had when I was a 17 year old trying to get the Division I coaches' eyes.
After dropping almost 80 pounds naturally 5 years ago, I started to experiment with all sorts of peptides, bioregulators and gH. Went on TRT, honed the nutritional aspect and started the spiritual journey.
It's that old adage, you never know what you lost if you never had it... Having been depleted for so long (maybe forever?) I finally feel again. It's allowed me to the emotional work on my depression / anxiety, without worrying that my nutritional / hormonal imbalance was weighing down the scale.
A long round way of saying Happy Birthday. I enjoy getting your content and hearing your unique perspective.
Happy birthday, Mike! So thankful for your writing and commentary. Has been like a mirror for me and helps me dig deep, reflect, and grow. Can’t thank you enough!
