My Daily Routine

I normally wake up around 3AM, when you are my age and have a huge prostate 4 hours of sleep at a time is about all you get. I fire up the coffee maker do my personnel hygiene the set in my recliner with my coffee and my back against my friend the heating pad, I  ruptured 4 disk in my lower back about 2 years ago lifting weights and they just gave out. The heating pad relives the muscle pain. I set there for about 20 minutes to limber my back and gather my thought for the day, Then I start my 45 minutes of back stretches and strengthening exercises my PT gave me, I always do these because it loosens up my back so I can function through the day. I then start eating. About 2 years ago I went on a diet and lost 45 pounds I had put on from just setting around and doing nothing. Part of this was eating about a dozen small meals a day and counting every calorie and the amount of nutrients that I eat every day, Something that I still continue to do. Now struggle to eat enough calories to maintain my weight. Next I fire up the computer and spend a couple of hours on it getting all my news and tech news for the day. I dumped my cable a couple of months ago and gave up watching the boob tube because I was wasting to much time watching TV. Next I usually run my errands if I have any then go over to the clubhouse in the complex I live in and use their free WiFi to conserve this 4G data I have. I normally spend 3 or 4 hours over there. They have three women that work there and I have kind of adopted them as my children and they treat my like a friend and a father figure. Turns out there use to be a guy who was a bit older than me who did the same thing a year back until hey died i His apt and one of the girls found him because they had wondered where he had been. So at least if I die up her all alone I should be found before I smell up the place to bad. By then its afternoon and I am packing down more food and take my daily nap in the recliner with my heating pad for about an hour. More errands follows or a trip to the mall. I enjoy people watching and just walking up to strangers and starting a conservation. Around 6pmI put in my daily blur ray disk I get from netflix and watch it. I just got the blue ray player when I moved in this complex a couple of months ago.It’s amazing the difference in the picture quality and the best 70 bucks I ever spent. Then I read on my kindle for a couple of hours until I get sleepy. My daughter got me this kindle fire about a year and a half ago and I rediscovered my fondness for reading, it also helps my memory because I focus on every word and don’t just skim through like I used to. Everyone have a great day and try to do at least one positive thing for a stranger every day if you can. you will be surprised how good it makes you feel.

  1. It is strange how as we grow older we can still change and adapt to our ‘new’ life. I eat a lot of small meals too and have lost a lot weigh.. a lot, I had gotten a little on the fat side of life from being sick and lazy but I feel like a new person now. I don’t a blu ray player but I don’t watch a lot of tv either..i usually have it on for the noise factor. good blog and I have a kindle too that I need to dust off and start using. hope you have a great day and the blessings from doing for others is our blessing more than the one you help.. good blog Bob!
