It took time for me to learn what I can do in our battle with Alzheimer’s disease #ENDALZ 

Wow, it took awhile huh? I’ve been disrespectful, arrogant, cocky and just plain mixed up. I have also been extremely helpful. I fell 7 times and got up 8. About me, I have learned, I Persist.

The message from me to caregivers is . . . 

  • If you need help, call the Alzheimer’s Association, and anyone else you can think of.

The message from me to Congress is . . . 

  • Please fund the National Alzheimer’s Plan to meet the objective set for 2025. You passed it unanimously and President Obama signed it into law.

The message from me to the public is . . . 

  • Please take care of yourself. Emotional and Physical fitness are key. Google the “Nun Study”
  • Please ask Congress to fund the National Alzheimer’s Plan so the 2025 projection can become a reality. 
  • If you know a caregiver, please offer help.

What would I say to a Congressman/women ?

Not sure, so at this moment, I will not attempt to. I appreciate all the folks that have allowed me to speak with them. Most were thanking me for my efforts. Something has changed for me. I just hope they do the work of the people responsibly. I aim to think of what I would do if I met with one. 

Wow, so many messages this week about death from dementia.  
Yep, not sure right not. I want to help caregivers and help prevent alzheimer’s and help find a cure. Gotta keep at it.  Right?

They are involved in alzheimer’s research. 

Google Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper and see what you think. I first heard of him in 1968. 

I did what he said and lost 100 lbs in 11 months.  

Good cardiovascular health may slow or even stop alzheimer’s and other disease. That’s why this post is here.   

Moderation is key to excercise, for most of us.

My heart rate was in, or very near, the aerobic zone for long enough to get the job done today. The pictures above tell the story about the weather. 

It felt good out there.

A mild 84° in Roberta, Georgia. Nothing but beautiful blue skies. Peaceful out there.

I got my stuff on and jumped in the car with mom to go see some new flooring at a neighbours house. 

After a few moments, I put the Ipod in, and headed west on U.S. Highway 80. I circled back and jogged through Roberta.

3 miles today. I even went up and down a small stair case in town for a bit. 

I had a good workout. Life is good.

being fit is key!

I work constantly at remaining physically and mentally fit. A Navajo Indian Doctor told me that being fit is a prerequisite for being able to do almost anything for a long time and doing it well. 

The reading and constant interactions I have with others is good for my mental health. 

This raising awareness job will take a long time. Being fit is fundamental.
