What Will My Last 10 Years Look Like?

Like diet, EXERCISE is key to aging well.

I can't bike like I used to, and lower back pain makes even walking difficult sometimes. But I've found some routines that work for me... exercises I ENJOY doing: my "exercise bliss."

I doubt I’ll last ten more years. I wouldn’t want to last that long if the quality of my life resembled what you see in the right hand panel of this Canadian government video:

Washington, DC, resident John Schappi blogs about aging, exercise, diet, pills, supplements, and his life with Parkinson’s disease and prostate cancer. Once upon a time, he was addicted to nicotine, alcohol and sex. These days, his passions include gardening, playing bridge, meditating, going to the theater and traveling.
