I found out I can still shovel snow.
Or should I say that I
lived through another snow shovelling experience.
It’s like riding a bike; you never forget how,
except that the ability is still there but the strength
and staying power is definitely in sync with the ‘best
before’ date. I
suppose it’s time I started to heed the warnings about
shovelling but at this stage of the game, it’s the
closest I am going to get to ‘living on the edge’. The
health section of Legion Magazine also reminds us of the
winter weight gain that we are about to experience.
When it’s cold outside, we tend to eat more and
move less. One
reason is that the level of serotonin, dubbed the
‘happiness hormone,’ diminishes in tune with the
waning sunlight, leaving many of us feeling blue and some
of us with seasonal affective disorder, a serious medical
condition that robs life of joy.
Either condition can sidetrack exercise regimens.
However, when it’s sub-zero and pitch black
outside, many of us opt for the sofa rather than the
running shoes. Dancing
shoes are a good option.
Our New Year’s Eve Dance will give you the
opportunity to burn up a few calories.
Tickets are on sale in the club room $15/pp
advanced sales or $20/pp at the door.
It will include good company, great music to dance
to, champagne and of course, buffet lunch at midnight
