as in my fingers and my arms are swollen. I'm not sure why exactly. I did spend a lot of time in the pool yesterday and I did not drink a lot of water while in there so that could be the culprit. But I'm just not positive. I do know that I will be drinking a ton of water today to get rid of this swelling or inflammation or whatever it is. I'm done with it.
In other news, I walked the canal by myself again. I am determined to get at least 7500 steps in every single day and to help that I plan on walking the canal every day. My plan was to take Mavy with me since he needs the exercise too. Yesterday he walked around the cul-de-sac and then pulled me straight home. So I left him and walked the canal alone. He did the same thing today. So I walked the canal alone, again. Yesterday it was hard to walk it. I was walking slow and my right hip and knee hurt. It was not that fun. Today was much, much better. I did stop at the electrical box on the canal and stretch a little, that helped a lot. I actually walked a tiny bit further today in less minutes. So while I'm not breaking any land speed records, I'm doing better and better. That's all I can ask.
Today I face things I've been putting off. I have a pattern of avoidance when I'm not sure exactly what I want or I'm not sure how to get what I want. So for example, I need a new vet for Mavy and I really want one who will listen to me and help me figure out what is wrong with him - because there is something wrong. I'm not sure the best way to go about getting that, so I've just been avoiding trying. I can't do that anymore. I have to figure out what is going on with him. I also have to face some other things in my life and I need to start doing them today.
Okay, having said all that, I'm off to figure out exactly what the plan is today.
