2016: Day 27 Day of Remembrance, Prayer and Caution
Today: 8,244 steps and 3.11 miles. Under goal, but I may need to adjust my goal. Increasingly tired every day and fatigue makes falling ever more a possibility. I left work exhausted and decided not to try to make the 10K steps.
But, li... Read more
2016: Day 26 - Missing the Mark
8427 steps, 3.2 miles both below goal but far better than I used to do.
I have not yet solved the reasons for my inability to walk and the intermittent problems that prevent me from walking, moving with confidence.
I am tired. I can't... Read more
2016: Day 25 - My Family is Safe & I am Back on Track
I took yesterday off and was, apart from errands, a couch potato. I also found out that my family in Virginia is ok. They are snowed in, but everyone is warm and safe. Very thankful!
I am still having anxiety about walking and am not con... Read more
2016: Day 23 - I Made it, Sort Of
I did not meet my goals, but the fact that I did anything is progress.
Over 6K steps and 2.27 miles. Water goal met, I think, but not sure. I switched containers in midday and lost track.
I wore coffee today. Good thing I sit in an off... Read more
2016: Day 22 - The Good, the Bad (or Neutral) and the Ugly
A tip of the hat to Clint Eastwood with my blog title. Today is a friend's birthday so, every time I wrote the date, I thought good thought about him. I also learned I get to mentor one of our students starting next week on a very long project... Read more
2016: Day 21 - Discouragement Turns to Gratitude
I am still having trouble walking. The trouble is not physical, at least not my legs or feet. It may be something between the inner ear sense of balance, the eyes and the brain or it could be just vision issues. Not at all sure. I can walk i... Read more
2016: Day 20 - Not Quite With it Today
Water 6 glasses so far
Not feeling great but not terrible.
I did not have to use the cane all day, but did rely on it some. I feel unsafe outside so I wonder if something else is going on.
My cousin's ... Read more
2016: Day 19 - Yawning as I Write
Today was nonstop busy, but not physically busy, mentally busy. It was the kind of day when you are so busy and you look at the clock and are amazed that it is already lunch time. I missed my midmorning walk, had a short lunchtime walk and a s... Read more
2016: Day 18 - Progress Continues in Spite of it All
I met my water goal by lunch time. I can't remember the last time that happened!
My Fitbit says 11,211 steps and 4.23 miles.
I am having trouble walking but I am not letting that stop me. I am starting to like adding the steps and miles... Read more
2016: Day 17 - Yesterday and Today
I did not get online to blog yesterday. I worked all day, cut out early and went to the hockey game last night. The Sharks beat the Stars, winning in overtime! We had great seats and could see the entire rink. The food was ok and there was no... Read more
2016: Day 15 - "You Put the Wrong Stuff Back!" I Wanted to Scream!
I will meet my water goal of 8.5 glasses. I exceeded, but only slightly, both my step and my mileage goal (10675 and 4.03 respectively). When I got home, I studied for a few minutes, ate something and eventually decided to take a short walk. ... Read more
2016: Day 14 - Cane and Consistency
The inner ear balance troubles caught me again. I had not needed my cane since about 12/3/2015. It hit me in the middle of day. Despite that, I did 3.98 miles and 9515 steps. I will also meet my water goal.... Read more
2016: Day 13 - Exercise! Back in School!
After doing nothing yesterday, I walked over 13K steps and 5 miles. I also will meet my water goal. This is starting to feel automatic and I have NEVER felt that before about exercise!
I am blown away! Do I notice my clothes are looser? Mayb... Read more
2016: Day 12 - Derailed for the Day
I took a sick day very reluctantly. I could not get up this morning (boy, am I tired of feeling that tired every day!) but I did get up. But I did not dare go very far from the facilities. I feel somewhat better now, but. bleh!
Tomorrow,... Read more
2016: Day 11 New Territory
