Body - My body is aging pretty well, so I can’t complain there. For the last 6 months I’ve had to do about 10-15 minutes of cardio to get warmed up to lift. That’s new. I used to be able to just stretch and then use the weights to warm up with. For the last 2 months I’ve noticed that my knees don’t feel right. Its hard for me to explain because its new, but I’m thinking you guys already know what I’m talking about.
Mind - I have no idea when it happened, but when I’m watching TV shows or movies from when I was younger…I no longer identify with the kid like I did. Now I identify with the parents. In short, I thought the parents were being ridiculous and the kid was awesome…now I look at the same shit and say “well its understandable why the parents would react that way, the kid needs to blah, blah, blah.” LOL
Music - I remember being at a small bar with my wife, and it had a dance floor. The college kids were on the dance floor for the entire hour we were there. I had no interest in their music, but they seemed to love it. We got up to leave and right before we hit the door, they DJ put on the Ruff Ryders anthem. Me and my wife looked at eachother like “oh shit!” Then we turned around to stay for the song, possibly jump around on the dance floor with the kiddies for a bit. We turn around and the entire dance floor was clearing. I bet those kids were thinking “this old people music?” LOL
Habits - I recently started doing something I thought I’d never do in life…walk around the gym lockerroom butt naked. It happened so damn naturally I didn’t even notice I was doing it at first. It started with a quick trip here and there, and has expanded since then. I’ve got to fight this one back. I’ll be damned if I’m gonna be the old guy standing butt naked in front of another butt naked old guy, having a conversation while our damn towels are draped over our shoulders!
