Shopping

Today, Cin and I went to Smith’s, an indoor Swap Meet and Smart and Final. 

I know I don’t exercise enough because I am really sore!  And, if I am sore, I can’t imagine how Cin is feeling; she exercises a lot less than I do despite the fact her doctors say she needs to.

Anyway, I tried on Sandals..to no avail because I need narrow…I have always had a hard time getting shoes and when I was young, my mother took me to the Marine Base for them. What’s interesting is, I can wear children’s sizes if they are narrow enough…but I digress.. ..and had lunch, while at the Swap Meet, plus, I bought some food from Smart and Final to freeze until my GlutenEase gets here, which should be here by Wednesday.

Think Rosemary Sourdough Bread and Hand Made Shrimp Tempura!

Hope you all have a great night.

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?

Thoughts?

Thoughts Verses Action

Woke up this morning with thoughts of things I need to start doing daily, again…like studying my Boundaries and my Bible, as well as set exercise. 

I got one of two accomplished.  While, I did not partake in my half hour exercises like I need to get back to; I did move the refrigerator to clean behind it, so that should count for something.  I did spend a lot of time studying Gods word, today, as well as, talking to a friend from Bible Study on the phone about it. 

On another note, did you hear about the lady and her brother that were attacked and killed during a Zoom call, in California?  I don’t know if it was her son but it was a relative and he is in custody.  Apparently, the woman was on the Zoom call and heard a commotion..the son or whoever was dragging her brother out of the house and stabbing him.  By the time the police got there, she had been stabbed to death too.  But, can you just imagine being part of that Zoom call as a spectator?  Even if you didn’t see anything, I am sure you would hear the commotion. 

This world is out of control. I am interested to learn the motive, though.

Bag Tree & Exercise

Strange things grow here in Las Vegas. A good example is; my Bag Tree

Look closely and you should see two hanging, plastic bags. One, at the upper mid left and the other on the lower right of the tree. Yes, I know the wind caused it, but I have to keep my sense of humor.

Also, I have a great home exercise routine you can do! Believe me, your muscles will feel it.

Pick up a piece of furniture or a heavy box and keep carrying it around and moving it from place to place. You can also vary the pieces and boxes..but be sure to do this for at least half hour at a time. If you really want to make it realistic, twist your foot or have a minor trip or fall, so your muscles feel that, as well.

Seriously, I am still sore from the weekend.
