Okay, I give up. Everybody who recommends a regular exercise routine is right. I can’t deny it any longer. The body, nearing 71, must confess that walking regularly, preferably with the dogs in my case, doing a few stretching exercises every morning, finding some chores that give the body a challenge, these are habits that contribute to better health.
As difficult as it is, particularly for those of us who never had a weight problem, or whose body seemed always in reasonably good shape, or who had never undergone a threatenting illness or disease, by now no protests inveigh.
