Tying your shoes

At Frank Wildman’s “Change Your Age” Workshop, I realized that my quads were shaking during a simple chair lesson.  That was disturbing.  When I was putting on my walking shoes that Monday morning, I decided to stand up, slip my feet into the shoes, and assume a ‘chair’ stance to tie my shoes.  A few days later I was able to attach the 1 lb weights around my ankles to trick my metabolism into working more.  Now, when there is time, I tie my laces very slowly.  An added, unexpected benefit is that I use that chair position for many other things:  picking up newspapers, books, laundry and specks from the floor.  Why would I want to pick up specks?  Because my mother did.  Maybe a new category  is needed:  “I am becoming my Mother”.

2015 was spent with some solitude and reflection: sometimes I call it a leave of absence. It was so satisfying that I am continuing with TLP (The Listening Program), Lumosity (both for the brain) and a Fit Bit for 10,000 steps a day. OH, and 'tidying'... (see the best selling books..)
