Trying to Figure it Out
been retired since dec 20 2013. the first little while was one big holiday. do what I want when I want . wow!I
started a big garden at home and shovelled an equal amount of soil at our cottage to improve the property there. I worked at a fairly physical job as a landscape foreman with the local municipality for 33 years and now my challenge is to try be as active as I was physically.
one thing I've learned is if you don't use it, you lose it, meaning my level of fitness.
the challenge now is to be as close to as active as I was and watch what I eat to maintain my weight which seems to be harder to do as I age.
not being able to do the activities I like at the level I want to is a bit of a challenge as I seem to be prone to panic attacks when I don't get enough sleep or eat the wrong foods.
I had a couple of stints put in 3 years ago. and this summer my heart specialist said I don't need any medicine for blood pressure other than aspirin( low dose).
I have had a problem with urinary tract infections lately which I am hoping to remedy.
the problem is if you are not busy enough during the day it's easy to get anxious about my health which I am pretty much in tuned to. I find if I get enough sleep and eat food that is agreeable to me it's easier to deal with this.
I am not one to pop pills so I am hoping to deal with it naturally.
