AND THEN IT IS WINTER

You know. . . Time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of

the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married

and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons

ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I

have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.

But, here it is... The winter of my life and it catches me by surprise...How

did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I

remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those

older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I

could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.

But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey...they move slower

and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than

me...but, I see the great change...Not like the ones that I remember who

were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we

are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the

day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I

don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the

aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things

that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though the

winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that

when it's over on this earth...its over. A new adventure will begin!

Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should

have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's

all in a lifetime.

So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be

here faster than you think. So, what ever you would like to accomplish in

your life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!! Life goes by

quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is

your winter or not! You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of

your life...so, live for today and say all the things that you want your

loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all

the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!

"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those

who come after. Make it a fantastic one.

LIVE IT WELL!

ENJOY TODAY!

DO SOMETHING FUN!

BE HAPPY !

HAVE A GREAT DAY

Remember "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold

The Lazarus Cure

One day my friend Jake hopped onto his bicycle and, like he had done many times before, my good friend and "weekend warrior" entered himself into a long-distance racing event. 

The event was to last seven days. But Jake never made it to the end of the first day. 

He suffered a massive heart attack and died before reaching the hospital. 

He was 63 years of age. 

When I heard the news I was as shocked as anyone. 

I am no stranger to death, but when someone with vitality is suddenly snatched away like this it is a sombre reminder that no-one is immune to the laws of biology, and that we take our fate in our hands every single day that we take our health for granted.

I do not know what killed Jake that day. Many factors might have contributed. Stress, diet, high blood pressure coupled with poor medical intervention, or none at all... Who knows? But I can say two things with some degree of certainty. 

The first is that despite the apparent "out of the blue" nature of his death…

The Truth About Whey Protein And Your Nasty Belly Fat

A simple way to keep your muscles strong as you get older (and it isn't exercise) 
This one step can strengthen aging muscles, boost your immune system, and even help you manage your weight.
It’s normal for our muscles to lose tone and become a bit flabby as we age. But just because it’s normal, it doesn’t mean it’s good.

Not only are flabby muscles unsightly, they’re also a sign that we’re losing muscle mass and strength.

Losing muscle mass makes it harder to do the things you take for granted. Like walking up stairs. Lifting a bag of groceries. Or recovering your balance instead of falling.

Losing strength also makes you more prone to injuries that can keep you from enjoying the activities you've loved for years. It's a major reason people lose mobility and end up in nursing homes.

We all want to stay strong and vital for as long as possible. So many of us turn to exercise. While a regular exercise program can help, it’s often not enough. We need to feed our muscles, too. What…
