When I got to work yesterday, the elevators were not working. I stood outside for a bit talking to a couple of co-workers, but then realized I needed to "get rid of some coffee" pretty soon, if you know what I mean.
Soooo, another co-worker & I decided to walk up -- we work on the 24th floor.
I did better than I thought I would. We stopped to rest a few times & when we got up to the 17th floor we got out of the stairwell to see if the elevators were working & they were. But I need to do that more often. Some day soon, I'd like to be able to walk from 1 to 24. I really think I could have made it, but my friend & I were carrying very heavy bags. I used to carry more than that around before I lost some weight. Something to think about. What an achievement though. I couldn't have done that 2 years ago. My friend said she'd walk the stairs with me again anytime - next time without the bags.
Silence that inner critic today -- you are capable of so much more!!
Had a great time with mom yesterday. She'd never been to World Market before - I think we walked up & down every aisle. There's so much to see. We also had a really great visit with my mom-in-law (Pat) at the nursing facility. We took Pat for a walk & she walked around the entire exterior of the building unassisted. She's fast, too!!
