Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day! LOL glad you can't hear me! LOL
I have had the best weekend, even with bad bad pain most of Sat I had a great time. Sat eve we went to sil for supper where the others had arrived. Then sunday we went to watch bil in marathon which made me cry, I was surprised I got so emotional. Came home and immediately finished filling in the stuff to walk the 5km June 10th so now am committed. Just need sponsers, got hubby to donate lol want up to 100$ so I can get a t shirt. lol
I can't say how high I am right now, even though my thigh is hurting while I am sitting here I feel so empowered. Watching the runners, young, old, Very old and one man who had been in a bad car accident, was walking the half marathon with the crutches that attache to your forearms! I thought yes I won't be crazy and do too much when in pain but I am walkign that 5k I do it most days when I walk so even if I hurt that day I am walking and then will rest and ice. In order to do well I need to make sure I eat well, that is my down fall, portion and getting off track too easily. So now I am going to do this.
Also I have a spark friend that I will finally meet, and she has found out she is diabetic. So to support her I too will eat more properly. I know that with my needle phobia I truely dont want diabetes and have seen what it can do first hand with a lot of my seniors I took care of. So Carol has me in her corner. We will be about 2 hrs away eating healthy all the time.
Okay for now I am off to put in another load, did towels from company ( lol bil had a bath with epsom salts) then a shower and said he felt good. and now do jeans and stuff. Then will go for a shorter walk as is 12:30 later in eve will go for a longer walk, I really enjoy my after supper walks. Legs are pretty good today, top of hip groin area paining but not stopping me.
for now here is my inspiration - from a very much party, beer drinking, lazy guy to seeing his father ill and died, and saw someone with emphysema and said not me. He still drinks his share of beer but sure does run and keep fit. In Oct he starts training for a full marathon and if you know Atlantic Canada winters... I wouldnt want to start training then!
okay off I go to get the laundry done and walk! cya HUGS and after my walk maybe I will x stitch.
