I was intentional in my goal to get back to my daily exercise after skipping a week due to knee swelling and pain.
Also, I made it a point to write in my grief journal, set some goals for the year, and reschedule my appointments. I have a dental appointment today, one with my kidney dr. on the 19th, and I need to reschedule my eye dilation because I’ve been seeing streaks of light at the outer edge of my left eye and I need to make sure my contacts are right before I go order more.
I need to be more intentional in taking my blood pressure too. I am supposed to be taking it three times a day, but I’m lucky if I do it once! I’m going to get a bad report at the kidney dr if I don’t shape up, lol!
Dinner is leftovers from last night, and the house is clean, so I should relax and either crochet or work on my paint-by-number…maybe after my dental appointment.
What are you intentional about today?

Praying that everything goes well with your dental appt. and that things get set up right about your eyes! Dad is the same as you are and taking his blood pressure, so do not worry!
Because writing is a problem for me I make “intentional” notes in my head of what I want to do! Sometimes the problem is remembering them!! But I tried to memorize them so I can recall them quickly. Most of them I do every day so that is easy. But today I wanted to incorporate a new exercise for my wrist and my grip! Something I should have been doing a long time ago, but Christina and I went to Walmart on Fri. and I got a small wrist weight to do some exercises that an intern OT taught me to do at the gym. She also told me to do a stress ball from my grip. So I did my morning stretches, and took my shower, stood in my standing frame while aiding breakfast for about 40 mins., and got down to drink my hot green tea with lemon, honey, and ACV, and did my exercise!! After I did that we got on the computer and Christina read some stuff for me, then I got on my bed and did some exercises (bridges) then Alice came to get me my massage!! Have done everything except for I wanted to go spend some time outside so I better get off here. It’s been a good day so far!

Wow! You had a busy day! I’m so glad you’re getting all the exercises in that you need!
So, the dentist was uncomfortable but great compared to the eye Dr. I went in at 2:30 and got out at 4:30! It seems the sack that holds the fluid in my left eye has pulled away from the retina, and that’s why I’m seeing flashes and floaters. They did a ton of tests, dilated my eyes, more tests, and then I have to go back to see him in 3 weeks to see if it’s gotten any worse. Fingers crossed it doesn’t get worse! On top of all that, I’ve had a muscle jumping in my left arm since right before I went to the dentist…so aggravating! But I did get my exercise in for the first time in a week, so that’s good! My knee was fine!
Getting old isn’t for sissies! 😉💕☺️
