Fitness after Fifty. Remember to Warm Up

This is my series about fitness.  I am certainly no expert.  Posts will be about what's working for me.  There will definitely be running plans, flexibility, and basic weight lifting.  You can also expect nutrition ideas, recipes, and, well, probably lots maybe a little bit of whining.  ;-)  I hope I have the courage to tell you about the failures.

  If you'd like to read the premise for my journey, that's right here:

Daily Habits

Warm Up

We all know warm ups are important, right?  Honestly, though, if it isn't fun, it's not going to happen around here!  ;-)  Many times, I begin with a quick walk.

When I first saw this dance routine on Facebook, I fell in love with it.  Where do you suppose I could find one of these wonderful costumes?  It is not possible to dance along without smiling.  A perfect warm up for me before yoga.

Here is a video teaching the choreography steps (and shows the dancers without their costumes).  I am so very grateful for the joy of their dancing!

How do you like to warm up?

  1. Oh my gosh! What a wonderful post. I am actually feeling motivated. I like how you have the activities broke down for each week. I need a system like this. I didn't have time to read each week yet this morning but will try this system. Love the sounds of your home too.

  2. I loved watching the dance and the tutorial. What a fun way to exercise or just warm up. The blood flows to the body warming up the muscles but it also brings joy to the heart. I loved it.

  3. Looks like fun and healthy for us all at the same time :) Shared on Fb, G+, Pn, and Tw ♥

  4. I love dancing! We take lessons sometimes and would do so more often if they were closer to us. I love line dancing, ballroom dancing, any kind of dancing. I have seen that witches video before but not the choreography one.
