Merry Christmas!! Six more days and I will end the year with a fractured shoulder, arthris in my hip and sedimentary chronic illness related issues.
The title says let’s start the decade right and we will or I will because I don’t expect to be in this physical condition at this stage of my life.
This decade I will increase my everything and writing will improve. I will establish my quilt income so the each month I will be earning a certain amount and have the ability to travel and go where I want need get what I want so that I will improve my health.
I’m 57, when I’m 67 we will discuss this journey of life. The work of an online educator.
A one-armed bandit is what I refer to myself at this point in my life. I am a victim of sedentary lifestyle which is the newest and most deadly disease. It is the new smoking., I have come down with three things associated with a sedentary lifestyle: obesity, decrease in skeletal muscle mass, plus, anxiety and depression associated with sedentary lifestyle. Now am on the journey back to health, thanks to a broken arm. This will be included in the online education because I work at home and this an area that isn’t discussed very often. This is the negative side of working at home.
As I stated above, I broke my arm as a result of fall in my home. I tripped over something, a small growth of arthritis in my left leg which causes my leg to lock at the most inconvenient times. Since my balance is off and my leg won’t move I fall. I have done this several times, hurting my hand, arm or just cause embarrassment. Unfortunately, in this case I fell, hit the edge of the wall and fractured my shoulder.
I have a Humeral Head fracture. Right now, my arm is in a
sling. I will have a CT scan in order to determine if there are any other
injuries to my arm.
My arm is in a sling, I’m on pain pills
and ice is my new best friend. I’m very
happy that m working at home so I can take meds as needed, rest as needed, and
just do what I need to do without having to work it out with anyone else.
The flip side is that I don’t believe that I would have fallen if I worked outside the house. I believe that I would not be living this sedentary life. The most activity that I do or did was to walk my dog. I eat a lot. Now I have a litany of illnesses and physical ailments that I can trace back to its origin or when I started working full time here at the house.
The sedentary lifestyle is the new smoking and is the type
of lifestyle involving little or no physical activity. A person living
sedentary lifestyle engages in activities like reading, using mobile phone or
computer for much of the day. It means light movement. This may contribute
to anxiety and depression
certain cancers cardiovascular disease
coronary heart disease
overweight or obese
decease in skeletal muscle mass
high blood pressure an elevated cholesterol
So, follow me and we will see how it comes to pass. My first goal is to make significant improvement by January 31, 2020. I will post about this every week. k.
