I set a goal to lose weight this year. I imagined walking (you know, 10,000 steps a day) would play a big role in that.
Since I have such difficulty walking, weight loss has been minimal. Enter necessity!
I had the opportunity to visit the local hospital today (all’s well), with time on my hands.
I decided to vigorously wheel myself up and down the main hallway.
I now lie in bed with a very sore body. I used everything in my torso, abs and hip muscles. I feel like I did physical work.
That’s uncomfortable and rewarding 🤔 I’ve needed more physical activity but held a narrow vision of what that meant (walking).
I wasn’t trapped by my disability. I was limited by the options I allowed myself to consider.
I don’t think I’ve had the opportunity to do this much in my chair, enough to be this sore.
It’s a welcome wake up to an option for improving my physical and mental health, even more.
