Amazing 4 days !!! I did it unbelievable!!!!

Monday, February 24, 2014

I had 4 days off Friday until today I sat day Thursday night & made a list of all what I wanted to try my best at on getting done in 4 days . The list grew to 25 I finished all but 4, & those 4 will be finished by weeks end.
I also started walking on Sat. since the last I truly walked was last Fall. My husband walked with me i made one mile, with chest pains & pain down my thigh,but I did it. Then Sunday after church I went on a 3 mile walk, not all at once I broke it up in intervals of several hours.Then today I went on another 3 mile walk in intervals. I feel so good, plus I drank my 2 liters of water. So I made my 4 days off count into a big accomplishment the chores would have been done ,but I never made a list like I did , it was like a game to see what I could really do. I even set the timer in some of them & in each case I finished before the timer blasted off!!!
So I am going to start being a list maker as it has worked for me.
The air was crisp & blustery as the wind whipped about,the sun was shining so bright ,the birds were singing away in there melody . I listened to a radio Christian station as I was walking,then on the other walks I listened for the first time a book on tape.so it made the walk more fun.

Will be a challenge for the rest of the week as I go back to work & standing on my feet all day can be trying. I will give it a go as I do not know about 3 miles as the daylight savings time has not arrived as of yet.
I feel as of this minute I have so much confidence in doing my challenges, I am a terrible carb eater after dinner as I am eating now 3 different kInds of frozen fruit as it takes longer to eat & finishing up my water.
Have a lovely week every one!!!

    I too am a list maker. I found out years ago that I certainly do better when I make a list. It feels good to cross things off when you're done, and I get so much more done in a day. On days when I haven't made a "to do" list, I tend to piddle around a lot and don't feel like I've accomplished anything!!
    You're doing great on the walking......especially since it's been months since you walked!! Keep on keepin' on!!

    I think I mentioned that muscles do indeed respond better given time. You did fantastic on your walking. Wow!

    As to your list, it's a wonderful idea and one that works, so keep on doing it. It's cheating if you put as #1 on your list: 1)Make a list....LOL

    Please take note that you had 4 wonderful and productive days off, you hit a new level of success with your accomplishments and they you went into the possible future of having a problem standing at work. The mind loves to add fear to everything! Take it as it comes, do your best, be creative with movement at work. You can work this out.
