After work last night, I walked over to pick up my walking buddy and off we went!!!!
We hit up the outskirts of Tyndall and stayed strong — walking strong that is. Conversation was flowing like a chocolate fountain and we kept each other in check with our lovely walking capabilities too.
And boy oh boy, could I ever feel the pain in my legs mid-way through the jaunt. I about collapsed into my couch once home though. And still, I wasn’t even a bit hungry for any kind of supper. But I did thaw out a bag of mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, corn, green beans, edamames) with no additional ingredients thrown in. I ate them super super slowly and chewed the bits out of them and it all went down my chute perfectly.
This AM, I woke up and called my former upstairs neighbor to walk up town and do errands. Fifteen minutes later, she showed up with her two-year old and 7 week old baby. It was pretty chilly out so I put on my hoodie with the hood up over my ears, wore light gloves and told her how far I walked the last two nights after work.
I have a wonky left ankle and if I stand on it for too much time or walk on it for again a long period of time, it swells a bit and shouts out a small tinge of pain. Back in the day, when I was three, I got my left heel cut off in a freak bicycle accident and when they sewed it back on … it just never healed properly…. and have had issues ever since. So thankfully, my friend was very nice and walked a lot slower than her normal speedy self goes.
She is also going to give me her old food processor too. She got a new one at Christmas and this one currently sits in her basement collecting dust. It is a win-win situation for me.
