How did this happen so quickly? I can't believe it's already July. The summer is flying by. I've only been to the beach once, due to the stinking high price of gas! I may go tomorrow, as the weather is supposed to be great. Today, I'm doing an exercise TV workout, and of course, umpiring another softball game tonight. I found a really great pain releiver for my knee, and now my hip on the opposite leg, it's called "Back and Body" Bayer makes it, but I bought generic. I can't believe the difference it makes! It can be a bit upsetting to my stomach, so I need to use it sparingly. Since working on my daughter's garden Friday and Saturday, then doing 3 softball games on Saturday afternoon, I've been experiencing excruciating pain in my right hip. The left knee is it's usualy pain, and I'm certain that I've overcompensated with weight bearing on the right side, and thus, caused some inflamation in that hip. But, as with everything, I just adapt and move forward. I'm 52 years old, and I know these things will happen, I just do the best I can to manage the pain so I can continue to do the things I want.
A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison.
- Francis Bacon
Taking care of what matters most
Your body is one of the most fragile things you need to care for. All too often we allow sickness, stress, and even other people run our lives. It's tough to consistently pursue your goals when you're laid up or constantly fighting illness. Take a preventive approach to your health. By eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, getting plenty of sleep, and dealing with your emotions, you can build and maintain a healthy body that can help you improve other areas of your life!
Now, I just need to keep that body from breaking down due to overuse!
