Never Too _____________ to Get Healthy!

7/1/10 – No Data – pedometer malfunction
9 glasses of water

Good morning Mintdom,

Although my pedometer had an issue yesterday, I doubt that I hit 6,000 steps because I worked at my desk for a lot of the day. Today should be much better as I walked this morning and already have over 3,300 steps in.  I need to get that up to at least 4,000 (2 miles) in the morning when I walk.  OK… that is the next goal!

Not long ago I wrote that there was no magic pill.  I received a great response from Bobbe who is a friend of my mom who reads Mintdom along with a poem that she wrote.  She and my mom have started going to the gym a few days a week.  I am so proud of both of them!  Bobbe is probably between my mom’s age, and my age; both of them look younger then their age, and now, I know that they will FEEL younger and stronger then their age. You go girls!
Here is the poem; it would be a great piece to post on the fridge or at my desk. It is nice instruction and a reminder that it is never too late to eat healthy, exercise and to have fun (giggle) while you are doing it!  Thank you Bobbe for the great poem and for permission to post it

As one gets older, I can see that old man time is a burden on me.

He holds his hand on the clock so round, and makes my butt so big and profound.

Oh, father time, you nasty thing, just get away from me, I plea.

My hormones are less, I guess, my face wrinkled, my arms wriggle, but I still can sit, drink coffee and giggle.

I drink the water and walk on the treadmill, and know there is no magic pill.

Best of all, I try my hardest to diet, and always know, we all do try it. ~ Bobbe ~

(To stay healthy that is. Ha. Don’t laugh it is the best I can do on such short notice – Bobbe)

AffirMINTion: I am healthier and stronger each day.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

You are never too young to exercise and have fun either. My mom takes me for walks every day, and I like it!

Life is Minty Fresh!

  1. Wow – I love the poem! And I love that our Mom and her good friend Bobbe are taking care of their health – Body In Motion is what I always say!

    Minty when are you coming over to play with Brandy?

  2. We DO have a VERY cool mom. Maybe next weekend we can have a play date with Brandy and the mini mint!
