You don’t have to run a marathon or suffer through a triathlon to be fit and healthy. But you do need an exercise habit. Especially as we age, exercise is not optional. Yet unless we had been athletes as kids or young adults, and few of us were, we do not know how to find our edge. Learning how to carve out time to meet our fitness needs or to push ourselves physically and mentally is one of the greatest challenges to aging well.
Inspired by her highly popular blog Be the Dog, Carolee Belkin Walker’s Getting My Bounce Back is a relatable story of what it’s like to be a successful professional woman encountering all things fitness for the first time. Whether readers have never put on a pair of running shoes or tried again and again to form a fitness habit, they’ll relate to the highs and lows of Walker’s journey, which ultimately brought her stumbling onto a path to resilience and well-being. Through her fitness journey, Walker discovered powerful sense of confidence and resilience that she’d never had before.
Getting My Bounce Back is about Walker digging in, discovering who she is, and seeing how far she can push herself to be strong, fit, healthy, and most importantly, resilient. Her writing is full of humorous situations as she decides to be an active participant in life and not take the setbacks, or herself, too seriously.
