But what if you hate exercising?
Then I suggest that you take a serious look at what you're doing. If you don't like that particular thing, do something else.
I used to have problems with my feet (plantar fasciitis). It got so bad I'd cry if I couldn't find a parking place close to the grocery store door, and I had to ride one of those grocery store go-carts.
Do you have any idea how dangerous people with regular shopping carts are?
I found riding a stationary bike and deep-water aerobics a good option. Here's an example of the latter.
Three foot surgeries later, and I got a treadmill. More on that later.
If you try things and don't like them. Try something else. And don't be afraid of being too old!
I started studying karate the month I turned 50. I joined because my boys were studying it, and I wanted to do that with them.
They quit. I stayed and got my Black Belt.

This is solution.
|Yes, that is the kid from the Harvest Moon game peeking over the side there.|
And having my kids paint the walls with their favorite video game characters didn't hurt either.
|Harry Potter was one of my requests.|
|The detail on Cloud from Final Fantasy Tactics is exquisite. You should see it in person.|
So what's my point in all this?
Find something you like to do and do it.
Make it fun.
Make it work.
