February Letter from the Chair
Will You Need to be Carried?

There’s a video that showed up in my Facebook feed of a 69 year old woman who started going to the gym about 5 year ago – check it out. 

There are two reasons the video made an impression on me . . .  first, I’m 69 years old and while I think being able to do a pull up is possible and even beneficial for me, I can’t do one let alone a dozen.  The second reason I’m sharing her video is her reason for working out so hard – she doesn’t want anyone to have to carry her. 

Fitness always scores high when we talk about what we want to learn more about.  As I recall there was quite a bit of enthusiasm last year when we discussed fitness at the April meeting.  We did a basic assessment so we’d have a baseline for any improvement we felt we wanted to make. 
Do you still have the handout from that April meeting with your notes?  If you were to give yourself that assessment again today, would your fitness level be the same, better, or possibly worse?

In the TTN’s spirit of lifelong learning, what have you learned about fitness over the last year?  What have you learned about your relationship with fitness? 
I battle with myself all the time over my desire to be more fit on one hand, and my habit of not pushing myself much harder than is needed.  How about you?

We are the first generation of individuals who have to worry about not only outliving our money, but also outliving our physical capabilities.  Most of our parents started their lives at a time when many jobs still required physical movement and even household chores required more physical activity.

Thank You from Celebrate One

In December, at our holiday party, Virginia Brizendine told us about an organization that provides sleep sacks for infants from families in need. In response, many of our memberes had brought brand new sleep sacks, and many had brought money to pay for new ones.

The organization sent the thank-you letter below. We thought you’d like to see it. Thank you to everyone who made this gift possible.

"Dear Ladies of The Transition Network,

"On behalf of CelebrateOne, I'd like to thank all of youo for the extremely generous gift of sleep sacks and money for more. Unfortunately, after a year in which we saw a huge reduction in sleep-related deaths, we've seen a dramatic increase this past year.

"We will, therefore, be ramping up our strategies in an effort to eliminate these needless infant deaths. Your figts could not have come at a better time. With your help, we will keep fighting this fight! Thank you, again, for thinking of us.

"With love, Nadine Rinehart"
