Here’s a rundown of my day: Awake at 6:38 but did not get up until 7:06. Jumped into my clothes and out the door at 7:24; walked for fifty minutes, 1.11 mile, 3542 steps. (Those steps are worth noting because, last week, there were days when I had less than 100 steps all day!!) It was 75 degrees when I left my home and 77 degrees when I returned.
Ten o’clock (86 degrees) and too hot and humid to work in the yard. Furthermore, a couple of days ago I pulled so many weeds I created pain in my right shoulder. After being sedentary for several weeks (due to extreme heat) my legs and hips are aching. That old saying: “Use it or lose it.” If one does not continue to exercise on a regular basis, the body deteriorates!!
Lots of water; lots of herb tea. Coffee would taste so good?!
One o’clock: I have a headache but, gratefully, do not feel hungry. I should go shopping for bird seed–and food for myself. I should have juice but am relying on the small GoGo packages of juice (from the CARE Center). Frankly, I don’t have any energy to drive into Livingston and shop.
Publishing this blog at four-thirty. Almost three full days….
I plan to prepare old-fashioned rolled oats for breakfast tomorrow (24th). Then I’ll cautiously introduce food back into my diet–and evaluate my reaction to it. I believe my “fast” experiment proves my abdominal distress is/was food related. I’m suspicious; coffee may have been my nemesis??
