I can't believe how far i've come physically in a short time. Yesterday after doing my 5 km walk in 47 minutes i was really hot, really sweaty and you wouldn't want to get too close to me as i probably stunk pretty good, but after a few stretches i was able to pick up my backpack and walk the several block back to where i pick up the bus. When i got home i still needed to walk across the road to the big supermarket where i need to walk all over the place to pick up a couple of things. Oh and i'd already done the push up challenge in the morning ;)
How does this compare to the way i was a short time ago??
Well i can remember going to the grocery store and on the way home being that winded and sore that i would pray the traffic light would turn red so that i could get a few minutes of rest in before i had to cross the street. Now you have to remember that i have arthritis and when i'm eating junk and i'm not moving it acts up something nasty!
I remember not wanting to tie up my lace up shoes because my stomach would be pinch when i was trying to do so.
There are many other things and i'm sure i'm not the only one who has gone through them.
All i can say is that i never want to go there again if it can help it!! I still have a lot of work to do but seeing these results definitely gives me the push i need sometimes ;)
