I promise I won't write about my walk everyday, but I wanted you to know that day two went on without any hesitation. Well, maybe a little.
As you can see here on the left, it's not quiet as pretty as it was yesterday, but I guess it gave me some diversity in my walk. I got home from my part time gig of merchandising around noon. In case you don't know what that is it entails lifting boxes, and replacing old merchandise on the shelves with new merchandise. Requires a lot of reaching and bending. I did that for two and a half hours this morning. Yippee. Upon getting home it was time for all the medicines and they require food so I took care of that. Put in some more laundry. Didn't really want to deal with the walk due to the fact that cold, wet weather and my arthritis are not friends. My body was aching from the arthritis. My feet have blisters from yesterdays walk and my legs and back were sore from my morning activities. Not the least of which there was the weather. It was raining out when I got home. But the doctor told me to find a way everyday. Now I will admit he's going to have to settle for 6 out of 7 cause I really don't have any free time most Fridays if I work, so some Fridays yes, some Friday's no. I almost didn't do my walk today, but then I got to thinking and we all know that is dangerous for me. Yet what went through my mind is that nothing in life is free or without pain if it's worth having. I have learned that lesson way too many times. I do want my blood pressure to regulate. I do want to be medication free. I do want the constant infections (lets face it three at one time is no where near normal) to stop. I want to buy a pair of slacks and not have to shop in the "PLUS" sizes. I don't want to be one of those statistics that dies at fifty because they didn't take care of themselves and have everyone talking about poor Sheila. So, I put on socks and tennis shoe's, grabbed my umbrella and my Walkman and out the door I went. It had stopped raining, but it was still really gloom. Since WOWO does Rush Limbaugh from noon to three I had to choose another station. Just as well, I needed something more upbeat to keep me going today. I chose an oldies seventies and eighties rock classics station. Yeah that would push me along. First part of the walk wasn't bad. My new found favorite sign was
