Or....also titled "How stupid am I?" I had a pretty good day yesterday. Felt pretty good, was walking without difficulty, went out to dinner with DH (we haven't done that in months), got my hair cut, took the DP (dear puppy) out for TWO walks (!) and even thought I might be able to return to work sooner than 2 months from now (which is what my MD put on the last paperwork that he had to fill out for me). So, as I was sitting on the couch last night I mentioned to my DH that I would like to check out the YMCA. We got 2 passes for a free month's membership. Being the good DH that he is, he said "sure." I also decided that,since I was feeling so good last night, that I was going to feel that good for the rest of my life!! I decided that, starting today, I was going to wear a pedometer on my belt (by the way, it also fits very nicely on my jammies!) and work up to the recommended 10,000 steps a day. No problem, right? So, I woke up this morning, all full of vim and vigor and was ready to give it hell. Then, I sat up and tried to walk! Holy cow! What a difference 12 hours makes! But, I was not deterred. I reached for my favorite flannel jammie bottoms (also referred to as my "I really feel like cr*p today" jammie bottoms) and clipped the pedometer on. And, guess what? I've walked 13 steps so far today!!! Thank you, thank you. Please hold your applause!! I know, pretty impressive! When will I learn?
