To give information missing from my previous blog. Iíve been walking every day since 2007. I believed the story that I could walk every day for the rest of my life. I tried. The story is a lie. Until Christmas Day 2013 I was walking 120 minutes a day, every day. I have walked through plantar fasciitis in both feet. I have a heel spur that needs to be surgically removed. I have osteoarthritis in my ankles. I have had a cortisone shot that stopped my heart due to allergic reaction, not once but two different times. The doctor didnít believe me when I told him I was allergic! Here I am still walking. I can only do 75 minutes most days. Some times when I put my foot down my whole body jars with a pain that drops me to my knees. Yet I still walk. The doctor is afraid to operate on my foot due to my allergic reactions. Iím afraid to see the doctor anymore. I have panic attacks just thinking that I might have to see a doctor.
I ride my exercise bike and find myself starring at the gauges. I cover them so I canít see them. The bike bores me. When I walk my mind runs free. Why doesnít the bike do the same? Thanks for the suggestions. I havenít watched much TV in my life. The last movie I saw was Star Wars. Yes, Star Wars in 1977. Iíll keep trying.
Iíve been lifiting weights for a few weeks. Remember the osteoarthritis in my ankle? Well its now in my elbows, my shoulders and my wrists as well. I read the instruction manual. I didnít over lift. I didnít over do it. Weight lifting is probably out of the question for me. Sigh.
Anyone have a used swimming pool they would like to sell me?

Its hard to believe I have been a spark member since 2006.
My sats are:
I started at a size 22W. I currently wear a size 10.
I didnít walk a minute per day when I started. Now Iím walking 75 minutes a day.
I ride my exercise bike 3o minutes a day 4 times a week.
I use my weights for 30 minutes at a time 3 times a week.
I hated cutting back to 75 minutes from my 120 minute walk each day. Iíve read on spark that I should be able to walk everyday for the rest of my life. My ankle and foot problems are 100% from to much walking and have proven that information to be wrong. Its sad, but has opened my eyes to other forms of exercising. However if you can tell me what you do to keep that exercise bike from being the MOST boring exercise ever Iíd love to hear it!

I was driving to work yesterday morning. I was thinking about all the upcoming surgeries that Kurt is going to need one of these days. He is going to need some fairly scary surgery. Maybe not today, but soon enough. I always, always thought that my Mom would fly in from AZ and be with me during any health issues that might arise with Kurt. All I would have to do was ask her and she would have come here to be with me. Yesterday I was thinking about how I am going to be alone if anything happened to Kurt. I heard this voice speak out loud in my truck say ďbut I AM here. Iím always here.Ē It was like someone was in my truck with me. Right there with me. I know it was my Momís voice, very quiet, but my Momís voice. The words made me cry. They still make me cry as I write them now. Yet I felt a lot of comfort in the words, like maybe I wasnít as alone as I had thought.
