Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
Sunday, April 2, 2017 – I have to give a shout out today to my sister Tina. She ran the 2017 Shamrock Shuffle in Chicago today. What an awesome feat in itself! This is a picture of her at the end of the race. How appropriate for a beer after a Shamrock Shuffle, huh? She has already signed up for another race in July. Now give me a walking race – I might just try one! Congrats my sister!! ❤ Miles Moved: 1.45 miles
Monday, April 3, 2017 – I knew it was bound to happen. It’s raining outside this morning and we are in for storms all day. I’m going to have to walk Lucifer when I get home from work unless it stops for a bit outside. I hate changing my schedule up. I like doing the walking for lunch and not messing my evenings up. But we shall see how it goes. Miles Moved: 2.41
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 – Yay! I was able to walk yesterday as well as today in between the storms. Thank goodness for that. There’s just something so fulfilling to walk outside and actually see things. I love my treadmill but lately I can’t get enough of outside. Miles Moved: 2.95
Wednesday, April 5, 2017 – My friends, I’m down for the week. Last night I was involved in a car accident on the way home. I was stopped at a red light, when it turned green I took my foot off of the brake. Right about then, someone flew into the back of me. There wasn’t much damage to my Jeep – thank goodness. The car that hit me had a lot of front end damage. I went to the emergency room and was diagnosed with whiplash. I’m on medicines and I’m home from work today. I was told to take it easy the rest of the week to give myself some time to heal. So, I’m not going to be walking the rest of the week. But never fear – next week I will be back! Miles Moved: 0.65
Thursday, April 6, 2017 – I hate not walking. I’m still having a lot of pain and now it seems it’s going down my back. Miles Moved: 1.02
Friday, April 7, 2017 – I never thought I would say it but I miss my walking. Miles Moved: 1.55
Saturday, April 8, 2017 – Okay something has to give soon. Tried going to the market but could not finish it. The pain gets so intense my body starts shaking. Then I take meds which make me nauseous and sleepy. I’m going back to the doctor Monday afternoon. I just don’t feel right. Miles Moved: 0.53
Thoughts for the week: never take life for granted. I’m really feeling low right now. 😫
