Working Out Every Day
“It changes week to week, but I get some physical exercise every day. My true workouts are generally about three times a week. I need to do more, especially after 40! The metabolism slows; it’s always a battle of time management.”
“Stretching intensively is an amazing solution for weight loss, calming the body and mind, body toning, and strengthening. On occasion, I use weights for toning. I use these for at least 30 minutes a day when possible. This keeps me strong for surfing. Pushups and sit-ups really help too.”
“Low-fat dairy and all kinds of fruit, vegetables, lean protein, plenty of water, calcium, vitamins like vitamin-D, and yes, occasionally red meat. I enjoy healthy carbs too! I have a sweet tooth.”
“[My family and I] live near the ocean in Santa Barbara, California. Any physical activity with our children is a great joy and believe me, they keep me in shape. I love to bike, hike, swim, and surf, especially walking on the beach in the sand, just before I catch a big wave. These are all California activities.”
“I don’t feel I am “incredibly fit.” It’s an ongoing process. My goal is just to be as healthy as possible and keep up with our children. I want to go surfing on my 120th birthday. At one point in my life, I gained more than 25 pounds without being aware of it. I’m more aware today. A pound a year over 20 years is dangerous. I know from personal experience.”
