Getting my life back a little at a time...yesterday felt like a pretty huge victory for me. Got in my truck, comfy...no problem, driving was good, walking around in and out no problem...pumping gas...all the normal stuff I used to take for granted felt so exciting to me.
Yesterday was real tangible proof to me that I'm changing...my body, less weight, more strength and confidence! Cindy and I went to a park, I wanted to make sure I did my cardio for the day and it was real cool...did laps between benches about 50 yards apart, back and forth...felt very stable and comfy walking.
Aside from my weight keeping my isolated over the last few years I've really struggled with this exaggerated fear of falling ever since I shattered my arm in 2005. So just getting out and walking on bumpy ground, cracked sidewalks and feeling ok with it is pretty big and it feels so good to be actually see the scope of my life open up and get wider day by day.
We are heading out to run some errands and do some of the stuff I used to do on my own everyday...so that will feel really nice I'm sure. We are taking our resistance bands and gonna find a new park to get our work-out in for the day.
So today's mantra from a favorite song of mine by Peter Tosh & Mick Jagger:
"Walk & Don't Look Back"
I hope everyone has a really Smooth Tuesday!
