Self Health Care

Started my day juicing carrots! I know if it’s healthy or not since I put everything in it. Carrots, Ginger, Honey, Vinegar and Sugar. And before you preach about how bad sugar is; some of us need it.

Watching my friends deal with health issues as they age is opening my eyes more to take better care of myself. C. ..I will call her Cin… has heart issues, obesity, diabetes and more; plus, she was in the hospital yesterday for a possible heart valve leak. Apparently, she had heart surgery for that, before. I watch her get short of breath when walking a few steps, have her legs swell and have even a small scratch turn into a bruise. I also watch her refuse to change her diet no matter what the doctors recommend.

My BFF also has weight issues and I watch her yoyo back and forth with different diets.

I, myself, have a weak bladder among other things and know I need to exercise more. I seem to cycle on that. I will start off excited and motivated before I stop and forget for a few months.

How does one keep up the action and motivation?

Sl o o o w. ..Day

Ever had those days that went so slowly, you just wanted it over?  Yeah, That was me, today. 

I finished the first book in the Narnia Series, played some games on the phone, took my walk to & from the mailbox, ate like 3 meals and a snack…or maybe 3 snack meals..whatever. Then debated on what to do, tomorrow or over the weekend.

Made a phone call to a friend I have known for a while and am a bit concerned as it is her son or grandson on her answering machine and she is older and not in the best of health. She is actually my BFFs Mothers’ Best Friend but my BFF doesn’t keep in touch with her, like I do. I have a feeling if something bad happened, I will be the one to share with my BFF. Prayers Please.

Not Feeling Well

It started yesterday..Coughing, Sneezing, Sore Throat, Headaches, Congestion…This morning I hurt so bad I could hardly chew, but, still eating and drinking to kick this.

Got the new Cat Tree from J. Yesterday and cats seem to like it.

A bit concerned about Puma though, as she keeps hiding and facing the wall. I will be surprised if she sticks around for another year. She is 16 years old. I just hope if she does go, it happens naturally. I get so tired of having my final goodbyes be at a veterinary clinic.

Puma in my closet.

Let’s Talk About…

Birthdays, since mine was yesterday. I think as we get older, we get more introspective and it isn’t as much about us. I mean, it’s great when you are spoiled and your Birthday is acknowledged, but I was more excited for my Secret Santa Match on Reddit.

The man I got is a bit difficult to buy for so I really have to get creative. He is the DIY type. He doesn’t have many likes except for Poker. What’s amazing is gifts are already being received and posted when matching was yesterday! It’s just been so fun to see or share about the people my friends got as well and what they are getting them!

I did receive an Amazon Gift Card from my brother for my Birthday so had fun ordering things for myself, yesterday. I also spent the day with C. and J. since C. had to take J. to the hospital. We watched Achmed sing a song about 2020 while waiting in the car.
