Fast Break Day 1

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Today I got back on track. I finally joined Spark Coach yesterday. I thought it cost extra, so I had ignored it. I am all over FREE....so here I go.

I am still not bearing weight on my leg. I will go back to the orthopedic surgeon on June 20th. We are supposed to schedule my knee surgery then. I found some chair workout to do. I used a mapping device to plan out some walking paths around my neighborhood to start using in July when I am well.

I went to my teaching assistant's son's funeral today. He was 31 years old. He spent his entire life with health problems....chronic kidney disease. He had two kidney transplants and was on the waiting list for another. It was heartbreaking to think of all the pain and suffering he had in has 31 years. They estimate that he spent about 3 1/2 years in the hospital dealing with his disease. He also had to undergo dialysis three days a week for years.

When I look at myself and see the health problems I have brought on myself by overeating and not taking care of myself, I can only be mad at ME. I must get my act together. I want to live life to the fullest.

    Sorry for the loss of a young life.

    A very good observation. It was inspiring. Got me thinking, too.
