This Week’s Progress …

Another typical week, the weather has been good so I’ve been doing my morning walks outside, which is nice.  Wednesday there was an enormous traffic jam in my area, caused by a very tragic and fatal accident, so I stopped at the mall on my way home, and walked around some, so that helped my step count.

Wednesday’s Words to Walk By …

This Week’s Progress …

I did a site change last Sunday evening, and this week has been really hard.  I place the new site fairly far back on my hip/flank, and the swelling is not only heading down to the top of my thigh, but also around to my lower back.  I’ve keep up with my walking though, because I really firmly believe that movement helps with the swelling.  I’m really, really hoping that today is the end of it, I’m ready for a few pain free weeks.

I teleworked on Monday, so that was the treadmill, but I took Thursday off and got in a nice long walk outside.  On Friday I had to go into the office to attend an all day meeting, and I got my steps in with a long morning walk, but spent a lot of the day sitting is a cramped position in a conference room.

This morning it was raining really hard, so I didn’t get my pre-gym walk around the community college campus (about 3,000 steps) so I have to make them up somewhere.

This Week’s Progress ….

Another fairly typical week, I’ve been walking outside in the mornings, which gives me a lower step count for the day generally, but I think that’s offset by being outside and by the different surfaces I get to walk on.  I will need to see about getting some more steps in during the day to get the counts back up.

So what’s up with the Tuesday number this week?  There was a Division meeting at work, and as part of the organizing I managed some extra steps, plus the long walk from the office to the conference center, and then back at the end of the meeting.  Sweet.  The rest of the week was pretty typical.  The weather is getting warmer (maybe even too warm!) and this morning’s outside portion was really nice.  I’m definitely looking forward to tomorrow morning’s long walk, it will be light and warm, the best of both worlds!

We were out of town on Friday and Saturday for a track meet, and that helped boost the step count for those days, despite hours in the car as well.

Other than those two days, it was a fairly typical week, with walks in the morning and at lunch time, no teleworking days, but everything on a fairly even keel.
