Seniorisms, On Being My Own Caregiver Before I Really Need One!

Published on 4/29/2018
For additional information  Click Here

This is probably the most difficult assignment I've ever given myself... Being a caregiver for another human being has it's own set of responsibilities, but I'm learning that it's even more challenging to become one's own caregiver... After giving it much thought I realize this is something I must do because I want to maintain my independence for as long as I can... I realize, if I don't do this now, I may lose it forever... If it's going to be, it's up to me!  I need to hold myself accountable!

Dedicated to all the caregivers everywhere,
especially my own should I ever need one...

My mother used to say, “Little children, little problems... Big children, big problems!” I lost my second son last year... About the same time two of my original four wound up with life threatening illnesses... Up until then I had lost 35 pounds just doin' it my way... Well, being a stress eater with a sweet tooth helped me to gain 20 of it back... If I don't do something about it soon, I know it'll reach a point where I'll no longer care, which is another hazard of being my own self appointed caregiver... At 78, I need to think of myself as the most important person in my life... While that may sound selfish to some, that's just the way I see it... I was taught if I don't take care of myself first, I'll be of no use for anyone else...

***Never Grow Old Fitness Program***
***Functional Fitness Solution***

I've tried many fitness programs that were either too expensive, or were more suited for the youngsters than for someone my age... I soon lost interest in them because they certainly didn't address my needs... I have no interest in shiny fast cars, a humongous house that I'd get lost in, travel to unfamiliar places where I don't understand the language or how to speak it, eating unfamiliar food that probably wouldn't agree with me, so all of that is but a distraction to me... I need a realistic program that addresses my needs where the others have failed... I have found such a program... It's almost unbelievably affordable, let's me workout in the privacy of my own home, select my own rate of speed that I feel most comfortable with so as not to injure myself or get discouraged... Most of all is, I need to perform a sweettoothectomy on myself... I've found if I make a change in my behavior for a week, a new habit will be formed almost effortlessly... That's only 7 days... I can do that! I'll keep you informed of my progress...


Signing off 'til next time this is,
