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?
