Yesterday I took a Dexa Scan test at Kaiser [link]. This is a test to measure bone density. Apparently I have bone loss. Osteoporosis! My T-score is -2.9, which is not good!
Now Kaiser has me on a medication called, "Alendronate". Also, Calcium and Vitamin D supplements. But the biggest suggested change by Kaiser, is to get up off my butt and walk! So, I went for a walk this morning. And I am going on another walk this evening. One hour's worth of walking every day. About 5,000 steps.
Since I tend to over-do things, and also tend to be very habitual, I am guessing that if I do this active life-style change for awhile, that I should wind up walking for a whole hour each morning and each evening.
Got to eat better too! Can't miss breakfast which includes milk, yogurt and orange juice.
My Guava Gardens apartment...
...is filling up. A couple of days ago arrived a 2-drawer bedside cabinet and the "volleyball" chair. Yesterday FedEX delivered the 3-drawer office cabinet that I bought from Amazon. It is amazing how much stuff that was a scattered mess on the kitchen counter, is now neatly stored in this office cabinet. The bottom drawer of this office cabinet is for my hanging file folders.
A desk is coming today too! It's called "Typhoon Desk" and is colored white. Has a glass top. Inexpensive too...$130. With this desk comes a neat LED lamp - with 5 stages of brightness. The lamp is black.
This morning from Best Buy, comes my 50" Samsung TV! The TV will sit on a metal and glass stand. All of this TV stuff is being delivered, set-up and installed by what Best Buy calls, "The Geek Squad". All that I have to do with setting up this TV is to direct the operation!
Already delivered and working is the Cox Communications cable box which controls the TV signal. A really fancy Wireless Modem is already connected up to the Cox cable broadcasting WiFi all over the apartment. Really fast WiFi too. 350GB of data per month!
