Well, this week I was able to finally jump to the next level on my lifting, going up in all of my exercises and increasing my weight lifted overall by about 10%! I’m now lifting more than I was when I started tracking this over 5 years ago, which is a tremendous boost for me, certainly a cause for celebration.
Health has been on the minds of many bloggers over the years, as everyone sees the benefits of FI (reduced stress, time to do the things we need to in order to improve our fitness, etc.). I typically read 1-2 posts a week from FI people that has some sort of “health focus” in it.
For Mrs. 39 Months and I, we try to eat a lower-carb diet, get plenty of vegetables and some fruit, and eat a decent amount of protein. I work out almost every day (lifting, biking, swimming) in an attempt to stay as healthy as possible. Mrs. 39 Months has some hip/leg issues (she’s had them since she was a kid) which preclude her from running, and make long-distance bike riding an issue. Still, we try and get out an move around as we move through our 50s and head towards our 60s.
It’s a good life, especially as we approach FI and can take even more time to concentrate on our health and on being together. Hopefully, you are taking care of yourself as well.
