Apple Watch Workout

I’m not a fitness nut. For a brief time in my life I was, but stuff happened and I reverted back to just being a nut.

At the wonderful age of 64 I have few aches and pains. Both of my knees still work and if it weren’t for a frozen shoulder and some digestive issues I’d feel almost as good as I did at 16. I’m quite a bit fuller figured than I was then, but I’m okay with that. (Hoping I didn’t just jinx myself with all this talk of feeling good.)

Yesterday morning my Apple Watch challenged me to a 20-minute dance workout. I like to dance. No, I LOVE to dance. My morning routine usually includes dancing to at least one of the songs on my Amazon Echo playlist. Three to six minutes of cardio after which I shower and then sit down for a writing session. That sequel isn’t going to write itself, you know. Could I attempt a 20 minute dance-a-thon? Challenge accepted.

And I made it! Granted, every now and then my dancing looked more like me standing in place and snapping my fingers to the beat than actual dancing, but I kept at it—even going a few minutes over time because I couldn’t figure out how to stop the workout timer on the watch.

So now I’m laying in bed trying to decide if I’ll go for it again. Another 20 minutes of sleep or 20 minutes of dance. It’s a tough decision. Yes, it is.

Peace, people.

  1. Good for you! I actually am going through some hip replacements, which is the only thing wrong with me as far as I can tell. I just had one done about 2 months ago and it’s FABULOUS. All the pain is gone and I’m walking almost normal now. I’ll get the other one and I’ll be officially bionic I think. I just bought my wife a treadmill but I have a lose a few more pounds before I should get on it. It has a limit of 250 and I’m 256 today. Sure, that’s probably okay, but it’s not MY treadmill and if I break it, well, let’s just not break it. If I do, I’ll have to deal with my wife, and I make it a point never to deal with my wife.

    1. I’ve heard that hip replacement surgery is the easiest of all the joint replacement surgeries. My husband has had both knees replaced and it too him a while recuperate. I’m still (knock on wood) wandering around with most of my original parts. All of my original joints anyway.

      1. The first one was amazing. I was up walking in about 3 hours. Well, I had a walker, but the walker was gone in about 7 days. If the second one goes as well, I’ll be a cheerleader for the process.
