Walk with Me
Welcome to a New Year!
This is the year I will be walking more.
Come along with me and let's get walking.
In May while traveling in Europe my hips and thighs
began hurting alot from all the walking traveling entails.
So when I had my annual physical during the summer
I mentioned it to my doctor.
The doctor said I need to do more weight baring exercise
to also keep osteoporosis away.
She suggested yoga or walking.
Well I use to love yoga, so thought I would give it a try.
Ugh! I don't know if it was the wrong yoga for me, but it wasn't working.
Then I thought about walking.
Well I love walking, but easily skip it if the weather is too hot, raining, or cold.
I knew it needed to be something convenient or I wouldn't do it.
Well I go to the gym three mornings a week, but had avoided the treadmill.
It for some reason scared me. I was afraid of falling on it.
But with help from a physical therapist to find exercises to
build up my muscles in my hips and thighs,
she also helped me get over my fear of the treadmill.
Now I walk on the treadmill everytime I go to the gym.
It has had a tremendous help in eliminating pain and giving more energy.
Whew! So walking is it this year!
Join me in walking with me!
This will be my Monday series.
Beside going to the gym we can walk in many places.
Come along, it will be fun!
In the picture above I was walking to afternoon tea,
now isn't that the perfect place to walk to?
Even had camera in tow!
Happy Walking with Me!
