Report From Ladder Company 40 Day 95

Hi Team!

I slept well again last night and that was even after staying up late being a night owl. It felt good to get back into my walking routine today after last week not going so well for that. Pete recorded 13,461 steps today. I also made a point to do some steps today when I found some available to me and I had time. YAY ME! It wasn't all at once, because I was working, but I took the stairs ten times just to do it. I have had lots of herbal tea today too, and some juice and milk. That put me at about 3 quarts of fluids today. I am 3 for 3 again! :D

On a personal note, my son surprised me tonight. When I got home I discovered that he and his girlfriend had wrestled their way through the jungle that is our spare room, crawled up into the attic and brought down all the Christmas stuff. We will be decorating after all. We had talked about not doing it because it was going to be so much work to get to the stuff and lots of excuses were made by all three of us. I am so thankful that my son did this. Now I am getting excited again, for Christmas!

Thanks for cheering me up, team!

Stay safe!

Report From Ladder Company 40 Day 94

Hi Team!

THis will be a short report only because I should be in bed.

Pete recorded 5,928 steps today. Pretty good for a Sunday. I drank two quarts today and I slept extremely well last night. YAY ME! Another 3 for 3! =D

Although it is technically tomorrow already, (12:38a.m.) I will be able to get plenty of sleep because I don't have to work until noon. The only other obigation I have is to meet Coach Alex and walk! And I am SO looking forward to that after this last week!

Thanks for continuing to encourage me. The doubt monster has been lurking again. It's because my knees and hips have been hurting a lot lately. But I'm not letting him win! I WILL over come this. I really think stairs are the answer. Well, stairs and Prayers!

Until we blog again...

Stay SAFE!
