Chapter 26, Day 56

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Kayaking was fun. We had an over an hour of kayaking time. I learned many new things about it. And I learned I sure need to work on my strength with my core, and especially my arm strength to more easily get out of the boat from the dock.

While kayaking was a great experience for me, my sis did not fare so well, though she was a very, very good sport about it. She tensed up while on the water; her feet and hands went numb, and she had great difficulty getting out of the boat. She proclaimed it is her last kayaking experience. To my fault, I should have gone with my original plan of a tandem (2 person boat) for us, so that she would have been less nervous, and let me do the paddling work when she tired (she wanted her own boat; she thought kayaking looked easy).Too late for a lesson learned.

All in all, our day was fun. Part of my gift by my two sisters was a gift card for my sneakers that fit my new orthotic that was ready for pick up. With a new pair of sneakers in hand with customized orthotic.....what a huge difference! I feel I could actually do some walking for fitness now but I won't for the time being because I was told I should not until the foot heals.

Food wise, I had a misstep by buying a couple of treats for the movies. While I didn't exceed my daily calorie range, I am disappointed that I had that weak moment and let one of my bad habits creep back in my day and ate junk.

Fun day with my sis

    Glad you had fun Vicki. Hope you and your Sister did some other things too. I don't know if I would like kayaking, but at least your Sister was a good sport. Good for you because of your foot and you will get upper body strength for sure.
    Have fun with your granddaughter today. emoticon
