I also had more energy this morning then yesterday. I got the bedroom and bathroom tidied, the bathtub cleaned and even treated myself to a shower. We also headed over to the garage to pickup our one van from getting an oil change and muffler fixed.

Late this afternoon I sent a text to my friend, Lynn, who agreed she would go for a walk with me. I had to force myself to go just because I know I have to somehow keep moving. It is much easier to have someone to walk with as the time flies by and helps take the mind off the pain and fatigue.
I have 70 more steps to go yet today to make it to my daily goal of 10,000 steps. I am confident I can get that many in hopefully before bedtime.
