I'm so sorry about your husband's accident. We had someone back into our 1 month old car on July 4th, so I commiserate! After daughter totaling her car going to work last summer, I don't even want to know what this will do to our (already nation's highest) car insurance rates... ugh. So happy everyone is safe.
Thought of you today and last summer's trip to the island... FUDGE! I want fudge!
Another 90-95 degree day today... far too much for this northern girl to stomach. We have no a/c as we really only need it for 1 or 2 weeks a year, and this is it. Got my walk in at 7:30 am this morning. By 8:15, it was already 82 degrees! I'll take 50 degree sweater weather any day over this. Not my cup of tea, that's for sure. The first floor of our house is always a comfortable 65-70 degrees, but I can't do the 2 flights of stairs to get there!
Drum roll please!!! I put my own socks on today!! Woohoo!! (...probably only exciting to me!
) So, the last few things that limit me are driving, lifting and steps for 3 more weeks... not bad. Leg strength is about 85%. General mobility is awesome (...thanks yoga!). Walking endurance is fantastic. I think it's just the heat that is sapping me a little there.
Promised my daughter, before all of this, that I would make it to a previously scheduled meeting at her university next week concerning budgeting her full ride and I fully intend to keep my promise... LOOONNGGG drive, but a promise is a promise and I am the one who has been in charge of this for the past 2 years... hubby wouldn't know where to start, unfortunately. She had doubts 3 weeks ago that I would make it, but I assured her that I absolutely would... and I will.
1. Increase walking distance every other day as tolerated working toward 4 mile goal. Yes, Yes, only thing limiting me is the heat.
2. Eat only nutrient-rich, healthy food. No bakery, soda, deep fried, fast food... nothing. Could have done better but hot weather is limiting food choices a bit, ate very little yesterday. Again, heat related.
3. Do something each day that I couldn't do the day before. Yes! (Still wishing that I could put my own socks on though... lol) YESIREEE!!! Sock goal accomplished!!! Claps for me!!! Also did hamstring stretches on the stairway... felt soooo good!! Also took myself off of all prescription anti-inflammatories yesterday and feel awesome!
