I Went For A Walk!

11 posts in this topic

I am so excited I had to tell you all that I went for a LONG walk yesterday. It's someth8ing I used to do when I first got my diagnosis. I walked all together about 4 miles! I had my daughter, my niece, and the baby and we all went to the center of town to go shopping. I walked closed to 2 miles b4 I had to sit down for a spell but hey its wonderful that I could do it. Last time I tried to go for a walk I only made it about 50 feet and had to turn back. I am so proud and happy that I got a piece of my old life back!! Don't get me wrong, I will not be doing this again very soon because I am paying for it but oh what a feeling to know I did it!

 

We went to the toy store and bought a DVD game to play and we bought the baby an outfit and we went got a memory card for my new camera and then we bought a pizza and went to the park to sit and eat and enjoy being out of the house.

 

I just had to tell you all some good news for a change!!

 

Hugs,

Patty

Oh Patty,

 

How happy you must be!!! I know you've been feelin' down! And what a way to make a comeback! Yes, please be careful not to over it do it, a little at a time! Remember to keep this happy feeling in mind the next time you are a llittle blue. It helps to know that you will have wonderful days like your 4 mile day! And I think you've got lots and lots of them coming your way! Congratulations! I'm so proud of you!

 

Keep on truckin'!


Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

 

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

Hey Vee!! Thanks so much. You are right I do need to keep ths in my mind so on a bad day I can remember that I will have good days also.

I really think that having my daughter to help with the baby is what is making me feel better. I am able to rest so much more then I have in the past few years. And on this note I am off to nap!

Hiya Erin,

Yes It is a nice smile to think that we can have good days!! I even got some pictures of the walk. I really needed to feel like the old me even if it was only for a day. I am still very happy!!

Patty,

That is wonderful! I am really impressed. Just be careful not to overdo. I try to walk 30 minutes daily. I usually do it in a therapeuctic pool. It does help my mood. I used to be very active because I was a ballerina. I can't quite do those moves anymore.... :unsure:

Keep smiling!!!!!!!!

Patty,

 

That's amaaaazing! I can feel how happy you are. I hope you guys are able to do it again. It's such a boost when we accomplish some physical feat that makes us realize that it is still possible for us to do something.

 

Will you daughter be able to help out on a regular basis? This really seems to be good for you.

Yay Patty!

 

That really IS an accomplishment! I was just at the mall the other day with my 5 year old son and there were a couple times I really didn't think I would make it back to the car. Had to cut my shopping trip short. My hips were killing me. And killed me all the way driving home even though I was sitting. 2 Alieve and 4 ibuprofen did no good. I was so tempted to pop a couple more preds or ask my friend recovering from cancer surgery for some of his pain meds! :lol:

 

I remember walking Seattle's 3 mile Lupus walk and I was pretty proud of myself then too. Of course my sons and I finished last and my hips were killling me then too but hey, we finished!

 

So anyway, way to go girl! Hope you can do it again sometime soon.

Take care,
