Day 6 in the quest to walk with Mickey. OK, here’s what I want to do in October 2015:
- Get into and out of the rides at Disney with no fear. It’s a Small World is my favorite ride in Disney World; it was my dad’s, too. You’re thinking, “No sweat,” right? But it is very low, and my knees and legs are currently very big.
- Walk from the bus stop at Epcot to Spaceship Earth without needing a wheelchair or oxygen. 🙂
- Walk from our villa to the board walk at Old Key West without a cane, and without constantly looking for a place to sit down.
- Ride one roller coaster that I’ve never ridden before, maybe Rockin’ Roller Coaster.
- And more…
So here’s today’s plan: Today I am going to move more. Every hour, I am going to stand up and walk or complete a task while standing.
I have been extremely sedentary for the last year, especially. And I know why. My mom died a year ago and the day we got back from her funeral, Mike received his diagnosis of prostate cancer. I spiraled into a deep depression, that has only recently lifted and released me from its grasp. Thank you, Jesus! Now I have a renewed energy for life and would like to finish strong. So with the help of the aforementioned Jesus and my inborn sisu and your support, I will move more today.
Still sugar-free. The correct title of the book that I mentioned yesterday is “Trim Healthy Mama.” Had a great talk with my health coach yesterday. I’ll say more about that later.
Love and blessings to you, dear readers. Meet you at the Kingdom.
PS: Title reference: I rock like a cow, when I go to get up from a sitting position. 🙂 Ya gotta laugh, right?

I am so impressed! Love reading about what you are doing. Moving is great – the more you do it the more you want to do it!
Thanks, Linda. It is a huge challenge, for sure.
I know it is hard for me walking to town when I haven’t done it all summer. I even wore the dog out this morning. She climbed the hill with me and she collapsed on her belly in the grass in our front yard. She said,” not going any further”. It was funny!!! So don’t feel bad we all need to do some work. We can do it. tt
You made me laugh out loud, Trud. I can just see Shylo flopping down. I feel her pain. Thanks for the encouraging words.
