Certainty of death? What are we waiting for?

For SoG, no steroids, no testosterone replacement therapy or testosterone enhancing supplements. It's all a quality diet of meat and eggs, with equal parts vegetables and some fruit. Basically, a high quality diet and the home gym, three times a week, which is why progress is slow for a sixty year old dog. But! There is progress. Slow, steady progress in the amount of weight used and the total amount of work accomplished. I'm much more solid all over, which is a very satisfying feeling. I go up and down stairs a lot easier and lift things easier, without pain in the joints, which is also very satisfying. I'm diabetic and have high blood pressure and my readings are going very slowly back towards normal, which is my ultimate goal.
I retired at the end of last April, because I was so messed up with blood sugar, blood pressure, arthritis and pretty serious digestive problems. I figured, I could sit on the couch watching movies, with a can of Fosters in one hand and a slice of pepperoni pizza in the other and die slowly. Or, I could take everything under control and get better. I decided to cut way back on the Fosters and pizza and start working out. I'm determined to be in better shape next year and the year after than I ever was before. If you're alive, you're either improving or deteriorating. I'm going to see how far an old dog can go, like this old boy.
Beats getting weaker and sicker every year.
