Recharge Day

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

I woke up this morning feeling blah. So, I will officially make it a recharge day. I have an appointment with my therapist today. We'll be talking about working on my schedule. I wrote down a rough list of must do, should do, and want to do things. I'll go over it with her and get her input.

I am in a socialize mode today. I will stop and visit Mom (and check up on her) after my appointment. She lives close to the office and it's on my way home anyway. She had a bad week last week and it ruffled me a little. She's got a doctor's appointment next week and I think I will go with her. An extra set of ears never hurts.

I've decided that when I get home, I will go through the exercises and video exercises and decide which ones I should switch to just to shake up the old muscles. Then the SP cookbook will come out. I plan on doing my grocery shopping tomorrow and this will be a good day to kinda plan my meals for next week.

Then I will decide on what I want to do this weekend. I'll come up with a few ideas, talk to a couple friends, and make concrete plans. Not doing much but cleaning house has made for a bored, uncharged person.

I'm thinking of a lady who went to my church. She was in her mid 80s and we called her our energizer bunny. She was always cheerful and encouraging. She always volunteered and stayed busy all the time. She didn't feel her best this spring but still kept going. One week she was in church being her normal self. The next weekend, she didn't feel well and didn't come to church. The next day, she was gone. I'll use her as my motivation today.

    My dad was not supposed to survive an amputation the year after I was born and then came Dana my sister. Anyhow, he taught us to try and live every day as though it were your last and have no regrets. Forgive and ask forgiveness when you have done wrong don't wait it could become too late. He lived till I was 19 and died at age 46. Loved your story and made me remember my motivator in life as well!

    I think it is great that we can see such great role models of people still living their lives at that age.... check my blog and see what I did to socialize today.... I surprise myself sometimes...

    Thanks for the reminder to be thoughtful about meals and plan them. Maybe some of my food decisions are blindly made.
