I got up and did my normal morning stuff yesterday and I finally got around to walking at a little after ten. I was doing pretty well until the cool down part of the walk, at which point I tripped over my own feet and fell in the road. I bloodied my knee up, and a neighbor ran out to help me up and to help clean the wound. I don't know whether I'm more embarrassed or more mad that I tripped over nothing. It was nice of the neighbor to help, though.
So, do I take the risk of walking again today? I might, because I'll have to eventually anyway. Maybe I should invest in kneepads. It would look ridiculous but it would save my knees from my clumsy feet.
Or maybe I'll use my new 5 pound weights and my loop bands today. I've been meaning to but haven't yet. I don't know why things like that intimidate me, videos with exercises are easy to find and it's just a matter of doing it. Tonight I can take a walk with my fiance, and hope that he can keep me from pitching over when we walk.
