Doing something now!

Friday, September 27, 2013

I have no reason to do something now. I am living comfortably. So all the reasons/motivation for doing something is future oriented. I am a type 2 diabetic taking short and long acting insulin but none of the health issues related to diabetes have shown yet. I am overweight but it is not a detriment to my life at this time and I no longer am self conscious of my appearance. Otherwise I am healthy although some lifestyle health issues such as hypertension, excess fluid retention and sleep apnea are controlled by medication and a c-pap machine so my tests results are good..
I have had 2 hips replaced this year and am recovering from that although I could be stronger and more flexible but my sedentary lifestyle does not require that.
I don't have any pressing goals although my life is likely more boring than it needs to be. I live by myself so no one else is negatively impacted by my current lifestyle. So the above statement is true.
So there it is. I have nothing current that is threatening me although there are things that may well show up in the future. As a result it doesn't bother me if I don't exercise today or binge. Now that my hips are fixed I can start taking trips again. I like bus tours as I can concentrate on enjoying the trip an some one else does all the work. I don't enjoy flying as I find airports are a pain but will if I have to.
As you can tell my aspirations for life are quite low so there is little or no motivation to work towards something. I have a coffee group that I attend once a week which is a good social time for me. A great bunch of guys. A pharmacy and grocery store within a few blocks serve most of my living needs. I still drive so am not missing out on anything I need.
I will certainly admit that my life is not very invigorating so the question is am I satisfied with that. Do I think I should work to avoid future complications or will they occur anyway and it is just a matter of timing.
