Although I’m marking this complete, it will be an ongoing process, a life-long goal (whether I document it online or not). smile4 months ago

My visit with this (new) family practice physiciann went well enough that I’ve decided to stay with the practice, after all, despite my other doctor’s having left (& so I scheduled a follow-up visit – my annual well-woman check-up – in January). 4 months ago
This is something I hope to work on for the rest of my life. I tend to let things go at times such as eating more junk food, drinking less water and exercising less but then after a while I improve. I take much better care of myself in general now than I did when I set this goal so Im going to mark it as done. 5 months ago
During the next 7 days, I will:
Make a dentist appointment
Drink 4 glasses of water a day
Get at least 6K steps each day
These are baby steps, and certainly not the levels I aspire to, but attainable goals for the next week. File under..you have to start somewhere! 5 months ago

that I’ve been doing a better job lately of packing & taking a “cool box” (actually a “refrigerator-type” lunch sack) with me, so that I’ll have tasty, filling, & healthy options available, especially when I have to work long days &/or late hours. smile8 months ago

my twice-a-year check-up at the allergist’s office; he said that my lung function is very good, & has suggested a new medication to try & help control rhinitis symptoms. 8 months ago
I’m doing okay with the taking care of myself (or at least, the taking care of my depression part), but I’ve had to fight and I think the depression is coming back again. I’ve read a lot of other people’s self-reflections in the past few days, especially a particularly good reflection on what it means to be in a relationship, whether with someone else, with God, or with yourself. I’ve also read some really well-written reflections that caused me to think of how little I think deeply and stop to consider what stuff really means, and how much of my thoughts are actually really shallow all the time. And I had a thought that I haven’t been taking such good care of myself all the time, and what it might really mean to take care of oneself. I think I’d be so scared to have a child – it needs so much care and attention and love – but I’d be so worried and concerned about it all the time that I think I’d do a good job. An even better job, I think, than I would if I were trying to care for myself. And that’s the thing – I should try to take care of myself at that level, the same way I’d treat someone I really loved or cared for. That’s the same way I should try to treat myself. Maybe I will take more time to think about this later. Maybe the depression is a call for me to think actively about what I am doing for me and what I should do to take care of myself. If I hadn’t had any experience with it, I would never understand what it means to pay attention to and take care of me. 4 years ago
