I guess I am doing okay. I have two goals as I start to this journey: 1) to be able to walk around the grocery store without needing to actually sit down during the task and 2) to walk my dogs around the block.
Right now (Day 1 of my new life) I am unable to do grocery shopping easily. I have to sit down or rest against the side of shelves and refrigeration boxes. I even sit for 10 minutes or more in the deli section on a real chair before I go to the check out. And if I forget something at the other end of the store I REFUSE to go back to get it because its such a long walk. All I want to do is to make groceries without it being such a chore.
The other thing I want to do is walk my dogs on a leash. I dont currently do it because my legs and back and hip hurt after walking about half a block.
I need to be able to do both these things to feel as if I am making my way thru the muck. Does this make sense?
