17000 steps

Okay, okay… 17,105 steps… roughly 8 miles.

Today, so far, has been a good day. Walked to the library (go figure, they have exactly ONE book on RA and it was checked out) and back (stopping at 7-11 for a cup of coffee on the way home and picking up pictures at Walgreens on the way there).

The walk today, in preparation for my half marathon, was actually better than I expected. I needed to stop about 3/4 of the way through to stretch out my joints, but it was all in all very good. Now, my “toes”… the wide part of my feet… ache and my knee has a weird ouchy spot… but hey… it was my first 8 miler in what… a month? Not anything totally out of the question…

Now… bathed and dressed in sweats… I’m kicking back and enjoying the sunshine… dog is curled up at my side and the doors are open wide. Coffee is brewing (and green tea, too…) and peperoni bread is raising on the stove…

I was dizzy last night (and during the walk today some) but if I had any other effects from the mtx, I slept through it (yeah!!!). Now I’m thinking about the fact that I have to be extra extra careful not to catch anything… but otherwise, everything is looking up… it really is all about the attitude… I’m trying to fight the worries and blues… and I’m thinking that life may not be so totally bad, after all.

UPDATE!!!
Per my toy… it says I took 17733 steps (plus or minus, since I didn’t actually have it “on” ever minute). Not bad…
