Day 320: Four Months Walking!

Today marks four months since I got rid of my house chair and have been walking with a walker!

I know that I set a new goal and then kind of dropped off the face of the Earth, but I have been dealing with everything that comes along with walking versus using a chair, and life in general.  I got sick of hearing myself talk, and just haven't been able to come up with anything to say.  Maybe that's what writer's block feels like?

But, I figured today I should say something since it's the four-month mark. 

I think I'm going to take down the newest goal and give myself a break until the new year.  With everything that is going on in my life right now, it just adds too much pressure.

After four months of walking, I definitely see improvements, although small and slow-going.  Every time I feel like I'm taking two steps forward and four steps back, I remind myself that I spent 12 years in a wheelchair and it's going to take some time.  I can't help but be impatient sometimes.

So, here's to four months!  Hopefully in four more months I'll have something significant to say.
