Will I Crumble or Will I Conquer??????

Friday, May 18, 2018

Definitely, I will attempt to conquer!!!

There are many things that in this past year that I've had to conquer and still am working on. One of them happens today - garbage day. I'm sure you're thinking, whhhaaat????

Let me just say that I live on a large, fairy steep hill. There have been many days in the past that I had to make several stops just to get back up that hill. Right after my husband died last March, I relied on my grandson stopping by or the dog walker to come on a day when I could pay to have the large garbage can rolled down to the street.

Okay, I know that sounds wimpy. But, did I mention that the first time I tried it, it almost got away from me? I had to let go to keep if from pulling me forward and down.

How did I conquer trash day? First I learned to walk down the hill pulling it behind me. Only once was it heavy enough to about knock me over like this. Secondly, all the squats and arm strength training is helping. I can most days make it back up the hill with maybe only one stop needed to catch my breath.

Do you have a functional fitness that you need to conquer? I'm still working on this one. Will you attempt to conquer or give in to the crumble?
