Pookeysgirl I will be happy to give you 20 pounds, if you wanted 20 kilos I think I could just handle that
Working at a desk all day takes a lot of work to keep in shape, maybe not work, but motivation.
I broke right my shoulder, right wrist, 8 ribs, collapsed lung and a minor fractured skull 10 years ago in a stupid motorcycle accident (woman hit me on the rear right side, and didn't even stop, would have been dead if I wasn't wearing a helmet and gear). I was in great shape for a 36 year old guy when I had the accident and recovered well, I was back in the pool swimming within 6 weeks and back wall climbing in 8 weeks, my regular routine in the winters. Now 10 years on, I am starting to feel it, my shoulder is showing the earlier abuses and I have a bad back. I tried going to the gym but find it very boring, I try to walk more and swim everyday.
Exercise notwithstanding we all get older.
