Still moving... I'm surprised!

Thursday, February 25, 2016

Let's see, I took Monday off to recover for the weekend. But these last 3 days I got outside and walked. No elliptical stepper machine... Just me & the Hellhounds. I did 0.78 miles Tues, 1.17 miles Wed, and 1.66 miles today in 39 minutes!! Not a marathon time at all, but it's a big step for me & my spine. And my doctor might get up & dance. I'm tired. Really tired & im really hurting. But I remember starting out in June 2012 and only being able to walk 10 minutes. So I'm proud of myself this week. It makes me HANGRY though! So I'm going to sleep well and stretch in bed if I don't pass out too early to do it, that is! And I'm giving myself until next Monday to check my weight as I have a tendency to hold onto it for a few seeks.

    It's so good for what you've done and with you hurting so much, it makes me want to tell you to not force yourself to walk when it hurts so much. Every step hurts me with my feet being so full of RA, but I still do what I need to do and suffer for it. It's not easy to make the right decision, with being stuck in the middle. I don't want to end up in a wheelchair and I know you don't want to either. The best that I can do is to watch what I eat and today has been a bad day as far as that, because of my husband and I taking a dear friend to a yummy Italian restaurant and even though I gave 1/3 of my plate to my husband, I know I ate really fattening food. So I will be drinking water and snack healthy the rest of the day. Oh, and I get angry too, but also so thankful for what we can do. Our doggies are so precious. Loving you Ang, and you hang in there and I will too!

    Hugs, Karen
