However, I have to admit to you, that in the last few months I have slid down into old age like crazy! My neurologist and my primary care doctor at Kaiser are still looking to find out what is going wrong with me. So far, no diagnosis has been made. That means, no treatment found either. Whatever it is, I am greatly affected in almost everything that I do.
The symptoms that are most difficult for me are:
- Stability while standing and walking. Especially when it dark.
- Lack of stamina.
Dating is a problem too. What lady wants to date a guy who is unstable when she is walking next to him? I dropped something on the floor of a store that my lady friend and I were in together, and she bent over to pick it up herself. "No, no, I'll get it.", she told me. She was concerned about what could happen if I went to get the dropped item myself.
Don't get me wrong. I am glad that my lady friend is sensitive to what is going on with me. But, my condition limits our relationship. I believe that anything that happens between us will "top out" at just being friends. When I'd like more.
12 noon - At Denny'sI have eaten breakfast here at Denny's and wrote this Blog post here too. Next I am going to the YMCA to workout.
I have never run out of energy to do my exercise routine at the YMCA. Maybe that's because I exercise for only one hour? Or maybe because I only do about 10 to 20 minutes of cardio on the treadmill?
I have not gone golfing since this health thing really set in. I do not have the stamina anymore to do a round of golf. Even when I travel the course in an electric cart!
4pm - Blog post from YMCA
I decided to drive my electric bike to the YMCA because it occurred to me that I am very stable when riding the bike. I only suffer from instability when I am standing on my feet, or walking. When I am sitting down, as I do when biking, I have no problem at all with instability.
This is a very good thing for me to understand. I have greatly missed driving on my bike since I gave that up several weeks ago.
A complete set of exercises doing my routine takes a little over one hour to complete. That's five minutes on each machine and ten minutes aerobic [treadmill and stationary bike].
Also, I do some miscellaneous exercises for small muscles in my back and forearms. Keeps those small muscles pain free! 😛
When I came home from shopping at the Vons Grocery near my apartment, I looked over the receipt and noticed Bistro Chicken Salad @ $3.99 for 6.25 Oz.
So, I entered Bistro in Google and came up with $2.98 for the same item, same size at the Wal*Mart near me. Hmmmmm!?
