It All Revolves Around Me

February 07, 2013 | 04:37 PM

Lest readers deduce, based on my whining, crying and kvetching about ass pain, that spin is too difficult for an average person to master, I think it's time to tell you a little something about me.

This week I turn 55. So far, in three classes I think I was the oldest woman in B-East.

I am easily 50 to 70 pounds overweight, depending on which table you use.

I have not exercised in over 20 years! Not with any consistency and definitely not in a class with other people and an instructor. I am extremely sedentary.

Despite all these red flags, I enjoy very undeserved good health. I don't get sick and have only taken antibiotics once or twice in my whole life.

At my last checkup, with a new physician, it was clear he was surprised by my blood pressure and blood work results. "You're very healthy," he said.

"You want to stay that way," he added before launching into admonishments about weight loss.

The point of this confessional?

To ensure readers that I'm old, I'm fat, I'm far from fit, and I can still do spin. Check with your doctor, of course, but you probably can, too.
