I felt better for a Sunday than I have in some time. All the exercise is beginning to pay off, I think. Usually, by the time I’ve cleaned up after Daddy and fixed his cooked Sunday morning breakfast, I’m already tired. Then the long sit through Sunday School and Church just leaves me drained for the day. That didn’t happen yesterday. I had plenty of energy. My body still cramped some in church, but not as bad as usual. I’ve stopped carrying the cane to church, too, so I’m feeling much more normal. Everyone’s still good to ask about me and let me know that they are praying for me, which I really appreciate.
I didn’t do so good a job of staying off the computer yesterday, even though I really did mean to. This is going to be a hard habit to change, and the difficulty of it just convinces me that it has reached the compulsive point. I’ve gone through all my usual daily computer tasks already this morning, and I’ve taken a set of pictures for an eBay listing already, so at least I’m being a little more efficient.
We’re taking Daddy to the Podiatrist today, so that will get me away from the computer for awhile. I’m going to see the Podiatrist, too, this time. I made the appointment several months ago, thinking I would keep it if the diagnosis was Parkinson’s and cancel it if it weren’t. What with the Peripheral Neuropathy, and some very deformed toenails already, it just seemed like a good idea to touch base with him. Daddy sees him every three months, as he’s a diabetic, but I don’t expect to see him but maybe once a year, unless he tells me otherwise.
I’m noticing a gradual weight loss, which suits me just fine. I’ve just about cut out all sweets, and my portion sizes are much smaller than they used to be. I really don’t feel like eating very much at one time any more. I’ve cut out the in between snacks, too, for the most part. And the meal at night is usually very small – sometimes only a banana. I just don’t get hungry at night any more. We eat our big meal at lunch now, and my dear sweet hubby, who does the cooking, makes sure it’s a very nutritious meal. I’m overweight, anyway, which puts extra strain on my legs and balance, so I hope to continue to lose weight gradually for some time.
