ACTIVITY LOG:

Errands, errands, shopping, shopping! Lots of driving around, walking around, and dodging the all day rainstorm. Sore bit time all day from yesterday’s workout but that should subside after a few weeks of being back on the exercise track. Body Pump class tomorrow night!

LESSON’S LEARNED:

Even tired and sore, by pacing and having a healthy, high protein with some carb lunch, was not only able to do all errands but actually took some “me time” and did some shopping / browsing in one of our very cute, trendy neighborhoods. Chatted with shop owners, got out and social, and had a pretty good time. It’s been YEARS since I did that type of thing on my own, just for fun. It was great! BP, anxiety, well, they were no shows and that’s a fantastic day! Going out again tomorrow to hit the post office, do some other errands and check out a new, high-end antiques/art mall that just opened for a bit more window shopping. All my fellow beepers, recovery is possible, even from the worst! It takes time and dedication but it can be done.

Special Note: the husband of a close acquaintance passed this Saturday unexpectedly. Sending her and family light and love.
