When I left home on Tuesday, my goals were to cultivate my whole being thru Yoga, Weight Machines and Zumba class, but those radioactive old ladies at MY Senior Center had other plans. I'm possessive, so it's MY Senior Center as it is MY park. Also MY old ladies (MIS viejitas).

I went very early to my Yoga class. The teacher couldn't go for a couple of weeks and I learned to appreciate her a lot. She is the most compassionate teacher in the world, so as a sign of respect I wanted to be there long before her. But it was a county event in the Center and the parking lot was full. So, I had to park in a nearby mall. Good side? I walked quite fast from there to the Center, burning a couple of calories.

Yoga classes are serious, so I didn't take a picture of the actual class, but one of me AFTER the class, with my wonderful Yoga bag. A selfie on the mirror, teenager style.

As usual, Yoga increased my appetite and after my spirit was so purified, I committed the horrible sin of eating a gluten-full pastry spinach turnover and sweet plantain chips. In addition, I sat down to talk to some ladies and arrived late to my Zumba class

In that picture, my endorphins were high and I was quite happy, but at midnight, I got (another) flare of diverticulitis, so on Wednesday 10th, I was all day on the bed. I couldn't do anything, not even stretches. I only could make a chicken bone broth to help my liquid diet.

    You must have lots of classes offered at your community center it looks like a lot of fun. I didn't know that you too have diverticulitis? I found out last Summer back in July that I had it after having a CT scan to see if they could figure out what I did to hurt/pull my groin on my right side. They found that and that I have degenerative joint disease in my right hip. Since that time I have been trying to find a doctor that will see me for that and explain all that it means and what I need to do from now on.

    Do you have a doctor that helps you with yours?

    I know that this was over a month ago and I do hope that your flair up has gotten a lot better now. I don't know if I even have them as I have no idea of what it is beyond being soft bulgy pockets in your intestines. I have had bowel problems for many years. Since having gastric stomach stapling in 1983. . well about 10 years after that I was diagnosed with IBS. I didn't have any trouble before that time.

    Thank you Ana for being so open and everything. I love you!

    I'm sorry to hear about the flare-up of your intestines, my friend. That is miserable! Feel better soon. Hugs to you and your dear hubby, and best wishes to Thomas too!
