“Age is no barrier, it’s a limitation you put on your mind” – Jackie Joyner-Kersee

Telling yourself you are too old to do something is a lie. You’re never too old to make a life change. If you have a health goal, go for it and don’t use your age as an excuse. I’ve seen people over 100 years old run marathons and both power-lifters and triathletes in their 90s, yet sadly it’s usually people in their mid-lives that I see using their age as an excuse to change their eating habits or to lose weight. Contrary to popular belief, you can teach an old dog a new trick, so don’t mentally limit yourself because you believe you’re too old to do something.

  1. Welcome to that little voice and thank you for following my blog.



  2. I had to go back and hunt for this. I have gotten very good at procrastinating. I am an older d.. I mean old hen that needs to get off sugar and reach the goal I put before me ages ago. For now I will read your 14 day challenge.
