Day 4...Strong all day

Thursday, October 08, 2020

Thanks to everyone for the positive responses to my blog yesterday. Do you ever start a blog not exactly knowing what you're going to write about and it all just kind of "Blurts" out there for all to see. You hit send then wonder why you did? Yep, that was me yesterday. emoticon

It was late night when I SHOULD have been in bed already. Obviously, I had something on my mind.

Anyway, today was day 4. Yes, Carlie and I did take a good walk this morning. Yes, it was a good 40-minute walk. An additional 5 minutes added from yesterday's time. I'm that much closer to my goal of 10,000 steps. I probably could have made it if I'd been able to get to my elliptical this afternoon as planned. Or even my bike. My legs told me otherwise, wouldn't you know. And I'm heading to bed shortly to elevate them above my head for the rest of the night.

If anyone is asking how Carlie is doing and if she growls at me in the afternoon for a walk? Yes, she certainly does. It's one of those that I keep her busy with her toys playing fetch instead since I'm either quite busy with business or needing to put my legs up. Once DH comes home from work, he takes her for a quick run since that's something I can't do. She's a happy camper then.

She's been groomed recently. I will share a photo of her, hopefully, tomorrow.
Thanks for reading.
Have a good night everyone.

    HOPE today's a good day. That's good that DH can get Carlie out for a short run. My little fur baby is just over a year and has lots of energy to burn!

    I'm glad for you! I hope your legs start cooperating with all the walking you want to do--especially since you have such a great walking buddy!

    Leg pain sure takes it toll. Walking or riding the bike is so much more difficult with leg pain.
    Hope you get some sleep tonight. Feel better.

    Stay safe. Be well. emoticon emoticon

    I am glad you got things off her chest last night. Sometimes that is necessary. I hope you got a good night sleep and then it's really awesome you took Carlie For a 40 minute walk..... emoticon .... I am wondering what your doctor says about the swelling in your legs and will that eventually go away? N
    I know that's a dumb question for me and I'm sure elevating your ' and legs does help. That's also necessary. Also good your husband can take over when he comes home so she can get another walk. I have been wide awake since 415 this morning, And would love to jump in bed right now and go to sleep but it's only 7:20!! I would be wide awake at midnight if I pulled something like that! I wrote for about 5-6 hours today An my brain feels like I put it in the microwave! It's toast! Trying to stay awake Until I get to go to bed. I hope you get a good night sleep tonight! Talk soon! .....🤗 ...💓
