Entrepreneur Christie explained: ‘I love birthdays! I just don’t like the numbers so I pretty much ignore them, I never felt as old as the number anyway…until this year.
‘After my very nasty break of my right arm and the frozen shoulder it gave me I couldn’t do downward dogs, planks, push ups, and at the other end my hip was getting worse with each passing year and long bike rides left me limping.
‘I started to feel limited! Restricted! Dare I say… old! I just couldn’t get enough vigorous exercise, and with quarantine came banana breads and the inevitable extra pounds.
‘I must add I felt overwhelmed by the number of injuries I was dealing with ( I’ve been very adventurous! Ouch!) but I realized I just needed to start with one thing and keep moving forward…’ (sic)
