Drinking Water

Drinking water?  I have just read that there’s a new Café just opened in New York selling filtered tap water. Yeah, that’s the only thing it sells, a real watering hole.  It’s called “Molecules”.  You can also add vitamins and supplements to the water they sell, to create a water cocktail – way to go I say. We could do with a chain of them. For our fitness over fifty we should be drinking water.  Guys in our fifties I think still find it a bit strange, the concept of buying water from a shop.  I know I did, even […] Read more »

What Does Fitness Mean To You?

Man running along coast

Now that you’re in your 50’s, you might be wondering what fitness means to you and you’re to be congratulated, and you should be celebrating this milestone. Whatever Fitness has meant to you in the past, and no matter where you are now, every one looks at it differently.  To some it brings on the cringe of pain, of doing something they simply hate, and even something they will avoid at all cost, but that’s not necessary.  Fitness and exercise should be fun, doing something that is enjoyable.  Maybe you just want to maintain the level of fitness you have, […] Read more »
