Day 3 A walk in the woods

    When was the last time you exercised or did another physical activity? What was this activity? How did it make you feel physically and emotionally? If it is has been a while since you last exercised, why?

    Went for a hike in the woods behind our house with my teen son and husband. My son always wants to go there rather than to a park with more defined trails so we were scrambling through the slippery leaves. It was a beautiful day and I had to trot along to keep up with them. I am always trailing behind which is frustrating. Makes me insane particularly when I am walking with my husband and he walks six paces ahead of me. Anyway... it was nice to be out with the two of them. Tried not to focus on pain in my leg/hip/back.

    I would really like to be able to do that walk and not be in pain and feel like I can’t keep up. I have been trying to visualize doing it. Feeling light, stable, moving confidently, feeling the sun and chill, the crunch of the leaves, pushing myself and taking pleasure in that exertion.

    Doing that walk and other activities regardless of any pain is an important step . . . keep it up!

    This is a wonderful vision/sensation to keep in your heart. You're very close, doing it on your own terms, getting there!

    Don't compare your walking pace to theirs. They will wait for you. It's fine. I get this feeling all the time when I'm late for something even by a few minutes. It's ok. Don't worry about the result. Just enjoy.
