|Dad's Old Mariachi Guitar|
I am still taking Guitar Lessons at Gray School of Music on 22nd Street in Pedro. I just made a new flyer for them that will go out soon as an insert in the local Daily Breeze paper. (see photo below) Guitar keeps you busy and sharpens your mind. I dug around my closet and pulled out my dad's old Nylon Mariachi Guitar he bought way back when I was in high school (he took lessons from his friend Bob Torres who plays Falmenco professionally some time about 1982 or 83) This guitar is real light and I love the sound and the nylon strings, so fun to find buried treasure! So why the change? Why Diet now? My knees were starting to ache and I got my blood results as being Pre Diabetic. I do not want to have diabetes (I could loose my sight which has been getting worse already or loose a leg? No thanks) My heart was telling me I was over working it too. I had the vision of my wife trying to push me around in a wheelchair...see what I mean? I had helped my grandmother for a few weeks who is in a retirement home. I was so out of shape when I tried to help her up and walking to get her food in the cafeteria each day was difficult. I met a woman who asked me to be her volleyball partner there. There was my grandmother stuck in her room not able to get around and a lady her age getting ready to play volleyball and me, realizing I needed to change my life now. It is so good to have an option. The ability to change my destiny. It was not too late. As for exercise I hate it, but it has to be done. Bicycling is low impact on your feet if you are heavy like me. My lovely wife found a solution for me on QVC. An "Eleptical" wheel thing. It is small so you can move and store it easy. You just sit on the couch or chair (you can do this while you watch TV too) and peadle as if you were on a bike. I break it into 3 segments of 8 minutes at a time per day. If you want one they are called "Stamina In-Motion 1000". I will post a photo below.
Hope this helps you out if you are thinking of changing your path or if you are stuck like I was. You can change your path if you really want to. Good luck and good life. Sincerely, Scott
