In this episode, I want to discuss how I have utilized The Power of Stretching: mental, emotional, and physical fitness. Yes, I know that sounds a little out there. What I have been experiencing, though, has happened somewhat by chance. It has stretched me in so many ways. As a 66-year-old guy, I have not expected to feel this way.
If you are a first-time listener, my wife and I moved to Ajijic, Mexico in 2018. Ajijic is a village on Lake Chapala, and is roughly an hour drive from Guadalajara. Guadalajara is Mexico’s 2nd largest city.
Since the first of the year, my wife and I received our Jalisco Mexican driver’s licenses. This required that we take a 10-question test, which was in English, and pass a parallel parking test.
My wife and I have been married for 42 years but this set off so many emotional triggers and I want to discuss how my wife and I handled them very differently.
Secondly, besides continuing to learn to speak and understand Spanish, I started to work with ChatGPT, an AI chatbot that has gone viral. It is pretty incredible, and I used it in assisting with the format and flow of this episode.
This is expanding me intellectually.
Lastly, I rode just over 3000 miles on my road bicycle in 2022. I set a goal of 4000 miles for 2023.
I am not a driven athlete. I like to work hard and love the feeling of accomplishment but if I must do it alone… well I probably would not be in the condition I am in today. I want to discuss how I have done this and how I keep progressing in my health journey.
