Ate when I was full again last night. Did not go over calories, but not good doing that 2 days in a row. Sounds like I am setting myself up for failure again. Did not walk or exercise today. Lots of pain, yes, but no excuse. Start again tomorrow... Read more

Went to the bank today. Then went across the steet and joined the Las Vegas Athletic club.. They have a pool that is made for walking. That was one of the best exercises I was doing in the Philippines when I lost so much weight. Spoiled the da... Read more

Went to an AA meeting again in the wheelchair. Also went to Wal-mart again. I can't carry too much with me so I will probably go often. Hope to make it to the bank tomorrow. (a different direction) But lots of places to explore in that direction... Read more

Got out on my own

What a great feeling. Went to the AA meeting by myself. Road my wheelchair there. Took 45 minutes. Almost crashed and burned several times because of my poor control of the chair. But I didn't crash, only almost. Then I went to Walmart and bough... Read more

Just got back from my initial ride on my new electric wheelchair. Got here about 2 months early! Will try running it a longer distance tomorrow. Maybe even go someplace. Couple minor problems. I can't get back inside the house by myself, so will... Read more

Made my urology appointment today. Doctor checked me a bit, had me give a urine sample for them to culture, checking for infections, and scheduled me for a cystography. Going to shove a tiny camera into my uretra to look at the inside of my blad... Read more

Keep it simple, Steve. Split pea soup turned out tolerable. Needed salt. I didn't use the flavor packet, plus I rinsed the ham with water to shed some salt there. But came away satisfied with 2 cups for my meal. Blood pressure was really hig... Read more

ODAT = One Day at a Time. That will probably be my title for a majority of the time. Bought some sweat pants recently, finally tried them on. They all fit, except the legs are too long. Will have to get 2 of them hemmed, but the other 4 have ... Read more

Had another doc appointment today for all the tune up procedures I am getting fixed. I used to use a C-PAP breathing machine while sleeping. I lost it in all the moves I made in the Philippines. Haven't used on in several years. But I had an app... Read more

New SP discovery

Goodness. I am sure I knew this when I was on SP before, but had forgotten. Just found out several people are leaving my notes or comments about my blogs. I didn't realize anyone even read them. So from now on I will try to get back to you with ... Read more

Had an optometry appt this day. Dilated my eyes and lots of testing. Turns out I have cataracts in both eyes. Left one not too bad at this point, but right side is real bad. No wonder I felt like I have been going blind last few years. So I will... Read more

Have spent the last 2 days almost motionless. At least today I have stretch a bit and did a tiny amount of aerobics. The chair aerobics hurt my right hip when I try to raise that leg or knee. Muss not give up though. Persistence is far more impo... Read more

Been sitting here debating on going for a walk. Find lots of excuses to not do what is neccessary to get that new hip. But that just motivated me, a new hip.... Read more

Just got back from a walk. Went 417 steps this time. I don't think it will be that much longer than I can make it to the bus stop. Maybe I should take money with me in case I can't make it back. Then I just ride until it gets back to my stop, al... Read more
