Ch 11, Day 65

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Worked late the evening before; rose late this morning. No time for a walk before grand baby arrived. Had to make the decision to walk at sundown, when it is cooler.

I've been flirting with a bout of sciatica all week. Walking in the morning helped me to loosen everything up so it was not getting too much worse. Without the walk this morning, and from bending over today to help my grand, I'm into a full blown episode of this. Shooting pain over the day.

I decided to try and walk it out at sundown, though I could barely walk from the pain. It was slow going. My pace was small, my breathing irregular. Saw an older woman bending at the waist to pull some weeds....I thought, you lucky girl....I wish I could do that! I managed 2 miles, and it took me 15 minutes longer. We shall see what tomorrow brings.

Grand baby's decided she is done with naps. Great (sarcasm) I will try and insert my will over hers, but she's got me when I am feeling spent from the sciatica.

DAY'S POSITIVES
(I sit thinking.....)
Central A/C
Food choices going well
Ibuprofen will enable me to sleep tonight

Wishing you a healthy and fit day.

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're still in pain, I'm glad that you decided to try a walk at sundown - 2 miles in pain is more than just 2 miles. You seem to have a lot of inner strength.
I hope that you slept ok last night and are feeling better today.
Good luck on the nap issue - I remember when daughter#2 decided to give them up, and I sure wasn't ready for that.
