- Take a glass of grapefruit and lemon juice in equal parts to dispel fatigue and general tiredness after a day's work.
I know...Ewww! I wonder if it would still work if I added some sugar to it. Or better yet, a wee bit of gin and some 7-up! Okay, I could handle that now, LOL. Although the gin might be just the thing that would send me into a 2 hour nap.
In doing some research to try to find other suggestions I also found sites that recommend doing a bit of exercise when your feeling tired. That will get your endorphins going and re-charge you.
Speaking of which, as soon as I get off this computer, I need to get my cardio done. Here's the thing, the last time I went to the doctor my numbers weren't too good and he upped my blood pressure prescription dosage. He also said that he thinks my chest pains and extreme fatigue have to do with some heart disease.
The ER doctor wanted me to have a stress test done. My doctor said that a stress test on women doesn't give very accurate results. The only way to definitely know is to have a particular test done. I can't remember what test he said. I think it was either a scan or something a bit more invasive. But since I don't have insurance it isn't something that we will do anyway.
So he wants me to walk 2 miles every day. Well, I've got a 3 year old...can you imagine how long that walk would take? Especially since she hasn't wanted to sit in her stroller since she started walking. She is a very independent little girl. I also have a wee bit of a problem with arthritis in my knees. So I've been using this glider contraption and trying to do it once or twice a day for 30 minutes at a time. It still gets my heart rate up which I think is what he basically wants me to do.
It's not too bad, except that sometimes my feet slip and I feel like a completely uncoordinated goof. But I turn on the radio and listen to that and the time goes pretty quickly. It's best when Rylie sleeps late and then I have time to do everything I want to get done in the morning before she wakes up.
Well, it is about 8:30 so I better get moving and get on that contraption and get my time in before the wee one wakes up. Ya understand that according to Rylie the world revolves around her and once she awakens I am to devote my every thought, word and deed to her, right? LOL
Have a great day & hugs to all my friends!
