    Default August 2020: Keep on Moving

    MS creates some real challenges to keep on moving. It helps to inspire each other on how to find ways to move.

    Did you stretch in your bed, swing your arms, roll side to side today? Or perhaps you did housework? Or exercised in a pool? Tracked your count of steps? Chased your cat around the home? Pushed the wheelchair wheels with your arms at the store? Post them here and we can support and egg each other on.

    REMEMBER: this is a keep on moving thread, not keep on exercising! Any moving is important— it doesnt have to be “exercise”! Even Science proves thaT.

    I swam 1/2 mile today. Weather is warm, the calm before the hurricane.

    Will cook, and mainly watch DH prepare the outdoors for the possible storm conditions tomorrow. Not too much to do, but I am unable to do even the simplest preps. Hoping to not lose power....

    Yesterday I got dressed and left home about 3:30. I went by post office and then to cleaners to drop off a pair of slacks, from there I went thru drive-in at bank, then I went to pharmacy drive thru (I had 3 Rxs to pick up, one had been sent to another branch, which I specifically asked that they change it), then I went in grocery store and shopped for food. When I got back to car I had to transfer frozen things into a bag that I sometime carry for that purpose with ice packs in it. Then I had to drive to other pharmacy and this one does not have a drive thru so I had to park and walk in. I was absolutely sure my legs were going to give way. I was dragging, but there were only two people in front of me and it went fairly smooth, got back to car and came home. I had 3 trips from car into house. I kept hoping my neighbor, Susan, would come out. She always helps me, but she wasn't around. I honestly thought I was not going to make it down my walk and up the steps. The temperature was in the 90s. I am not sure what the heat index was.

    By the time I emptied the car it was a little after 6:30. I had not had anything to drink. I took no water, due to mask and thinking I could do this MUCH quicker. I couldn't fix anything to eat. I got water and set down after putting groceries away. Finally, between 7:30 and 8:00PM, I got up and fixed a sandwich and an ear of corn. I am wiped out today.
