WinkYou're all grown up now - you've aged, you've changed...you pay attention to different things...tell us all ONE of those things, pleeeeaaaauuuuzzzzz?!
I, for one, pay attention to my bladder. I wear basketball shorts pretty often as it seems any time I am near running water, the 'power of suggestion' takes over with very little time to spare...Ouch

I stretch more.

Yes, I know, I should have started doing that earlier.  And at 25 that's hardly a 'thing'.

But I have sh*t flexibility as is and I'm not exactly looking forward to my 'tinman' years.

So, stretching the legs (during a separate workout which doesn't need that) is a new thing.  Feels nice.  That good kind of strain.  Remains to be seen if that pans out in the long term.

I cut down on the sodium, carbohydrates, sugar and caffeine.

Went to a Dr and got prescribed blood pressure medication. Started monitoring my glucose occasionally.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I put on 4 lbs this past week, so I've cut back on the junk food.  I weigh myself every morning so I can gauge how to proceed.  This way, I don't gain 10 or 20 lbs before I realize I have to do something about it.

Cut back my coffee intake to no more than 3 cups a day (but I do press my own coffee, so it has plenty of 'giddy-up').
 
Cut WAY back on my sugar intake. Replaced with honey or blue agave.
 
I am forcing myself to sleep no more than about 5-6 hours at night and working by 7 AM so I can get some productive work done before the daily oppressive heat sets in (can't concentrate, fall asleep easily).

I take a leak before I go out for any shopping trip.

OuchBelieve it or not, my FOLKS (who are in their upper 80's) had noticed it, too...and decided to be FUNNY, so they actually bought me some DEPENDS - yesterday! They had them in a brown paper bag while we were sitting as they gave me 'the uncomfortable talk about aging' and then pulled them out and started laughing...they have a nasty sense of humorLOL
They are now hiding in the bathroom near the TP...I want to see who opens the package first - then I'm going to have a 'field day' with them.
 
Seriously? It only happens when I get near running water, especially if I have had a couple of 40 oz beers.

LOL
 
My folks once sent me a Christmas package that I had to pick up at UPS.  When I got it, I found they'd packaged it all in a Depends case.  I had to take two busses home carrying that thing.

Not much, but I probably should. I had the strangest feeling in my chest last night.
My heart was fluttering like it was having some sort of spasm. We are both smoking less and I don't drink as much either but this kinda startled me.
Mama, a retired RN, checked my blood pressure and listened to my heart and lungs.
This was after the sensation, BTW.  I feel fine today.

I'm waiting for the time when I can check my A1C, Blood Sugar and if I have cancer cells in my poop from home.

I don't like doctors or the insurance system, not to mention the friggin pharm industry.

You can do all that stuff you mentioned from home already.

You can buy home A1C monitors, though they cost a bit more than regular glucose monitors, and you can get home fecal occult kits too, but you have to send them out to a lab to have the results verified.

I like that EKG gadget, too.

And for $99 bucks, the price ain't bad.

I wonder what kind of monthly fee comes with it, though.
