Change can be good.

I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

I remained indoors today and cleaned part of the house instead. Good way to pass the time while helping my mom up & down the step and walking. Actual heat index turned out to only be 110. My DH is putting molding at the floor level and has to cut to fit. He even slowed down and we have been drinking well. I have had heat exhaustion in the past and am more easily affected.

Thanks for checking on us. It's still sleeping in the recliners but Bob wants to try sleeping in bed tonight. Hopefully he'll manage it and we can both get a good nights sleep.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks Dena. I think mom has a "glorified" idea of what she can and can't do. Hoping she is seeing that now as she isn't doing well with walking nor getting out of the chair, etc. Didn't want a lift chair, now is thinking about one. Yes, trying times ahead but will work on getting some me time in every day.
