Thanks for the suggestions about exercise. I can't run because of a neck injury. If I run, my arms go numb. But I have an $8/month gym membership that I bought in 1954 (all club VIP for 24Hr Fitness) that I haven't given up. I do weight training and aerobics there. If I drive to the gym, the most expensive part is the gas. If I go 3X per week @1/2 gallon per visit, that's about 6 gallons of gas per month or $24, not to mention the wear and tear on the car, so in good weather, I ride my bike. Since they raised the bus prices here, it is cheaper to drive, LOL.
Most of my aerobic exercise is from dancing. Somehow dancing does not bother my neck as jogging does. I get a lot of joy dancing as well. I go to electronic music events 2X per week and I dance harder than 95% of the twenty-somethings there. I hardly leave the dance floor all night, sometimes dancing alone and sometimes with another. I was weary at first of entering this world consisting of 80% under-thirty, but because of my positive attitude and high energy, I am well-accepted. Most nights, I actually get flirted at by one or more young girls or guys, which certainly boosts my ego, LOL. That helps too.
Dancing for me is a lot of fun. Fun can be free and it is a major force for health and longevity, without question.
Yes, agreed, exercise is likely the MOST important part of any health or longevity regimen. Nevertheless, as soon as I can afford it, I'll resume with HgH and other more expensive supplements.
Thanks so much for all the love and support, it is really appreciated.
