I am TOTALLY THRILLED !! Walking,,,,

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Today was a BEAUTIFUL DAY Out !! In the mid 40s ,, though there WAS a HARD WIND,, about 15 to 20 MPH,, which BLEW MY HAIR INTO MY FACE !! I DO NOT at ALL like that !

I had decided Yesterday if it was sunny, nice out,, I WOULD go for a WALK !! I have NOT done this "outside" (Have in stores on purpose to just get in walking) since the end of fall,,, when we started to have the OLD GREAT STUFF that's VERY WHITE and cold (I DO NOT mind the cold,, I DO the ice !) started. Since I have osteoporosis I need to be EVER SO GENTLE and EASY On my body. My Dr said I have the body of an 85 yr old,, hmmm 30 yrs oldah than I AM !! Hmmmpt !! I DO NOT liketh that ! but hey,, it is as it is. It aged sooo quickly from meds and inactivity due to all the surgeries,, and broken bones I have had over the past 4 yrs and so on, back from that also.

So YES I DO need to be very careful. but I WAS NOT going to WASTE THIS DAY !! WOOF HOOOO !! WOOOF HOOO !!! So ON I put my specially made sneakers,,, and OUT I WENT into the BRILLANT SUNSHINE ! With a song of HAPPINESS in my heart,,, and feet !

I was about just under a 1/4 of a mile,, when my hips and right knee were hurt horribly so. (If you are a reg reader,,, you know I almost always use my power chair, but I AM TRYING To NOT too at this time,, ,, it wont be allowed for long,, I GUESS,,, for I go in cycles of not being able to walk to being able to some) this is MY SOME TIME right now ! YEAH !!! So I turned around,, delighted I had done this much !!! :)

On just that walk,, I did just over a 1/2 mile in total. I AM THRILLED !!

See if I had believed I COULD NOT achieve I NEVER would of SUCCEEDED !!

THANKS To ALL THE DAWGGIES who have BELIEF in me,,and all on the "Believe, achieve and SUCCEED" team for ALL the encouragement !!!

Come Mon,,,, THANKS to the latter team mentioned,,, I am going to RESTART SWIMMING !! So MUCH Eaiser if the waters NOT to cold,, on my joints !!!

    WOW - So excited for you to get that walk in! And Swimming?! Woo HOO! I told Dave that as soon as the silly wind quits blowing here, it should be summer any day! He has mastered a hose system to keep our pool warm via sun and the hoses. I suggested we could be swimming soon! His eyes rolled, more dayquil and back for another nap! He is making thru the flu one more time - Woo HOo! I am proud of all your positive steps! emoticon emoticon emoticon

  Yes! The sun and warmth pulled me outside too. It was a little muddy on our dirt road but that was good because it slowed me down so that I don't overdo and make my pain worse instead of better. The spring like weather can make me think I can be frisky. Well done on the 1/2 mile! I didn't go far either but it sure felt good to be walking.
