I had a wonderful day today. I met up with some of my favorite people and went to San Francisco for a day to meet yet another one of my favorite people for lunch, and whatever else our day fancied.
As one is wont to do in San Francisco, we walked a bit. Now, I'm just starting this journey again, and walking is one of the things I need to get rolling again. Well today took care of that. We had a wonderful afternoon of lunch, shopping, stopped in at a fantastic eclectic furniture store, ended it with Philz coffee and home again, jiggity jig.
Thing about the walking for me is some years ago, when I was training in Martial Arts, I had pulled my achilles only a very little bit out of whack. With some care, and putting it up, it's been manageable, but today, and any day I do a lot of walking, it starts to screaming again. Now that I'm home, I'm off the foot, gave it some massage time, and will put some heat on that puppy before bed. Thing is, this is one of those reminders as to why I am putting my all into losing this weight yet again. This is something that can be remedied...when I don't weigh so much. I'm very thankful and so very grateful that I have not gotten so overweight as to have put my body in any more of a stressful position that I already have and to perhaps consider some other leg malady.
So, I guess this post is really about counting yet another blessing. My legs, though achy, are going to get me through this...and with high marks!
