I woke up early on Saturday morning. I decided to use one of my Zumba cds and exercise in my chair. I use to to stand for the entire work out. Then I’d sit for every other song. It became I’d push through standing for three songs in the beginning and sitting for the rest. Now I barely stand for one song. Yet I still do it and for that I’m proud. I knew it would take me at least 30 minutes to be able to walk after. Nothing new after exercise.
My day was as it usually is. I functioned and was up and around but my struggle was the same as every other day. Then it happened at about 9:00 at night, I had a really easy time. I walked without the struggle. I walked where i felt like i stood up straight and i almost didn’t need the walker. I can’t remember the last time my walking was that easy. Of course this was only measured in a trip to the bathroom and into my bedroom for bed but it was nice relief.
I went to bed hoping maybe just maybe it would stay that way but once I was up it went back to the normal way. It was more of the usually feet sliding on the floor. It was unfortunate but I guess expected. The last time I felt walking was this easy was last year when I first started swimming. I started walking so good. I was so strong we were going to try to go to canes instead of the walker. A lot has changed in the last 8 months. That idea I couldn’t imagine today but for that brief hour on Saturday, I remembered.
