It dawned on me that I should be using the Map my Walk app again to keep track of what I'm doing. All my psychology training tells me that seeing your progress on a chart or some other visual form is rewarding enough to keep going. Since I started using the app this week, this is what I've done:
Not too shabby at all. 5 weeks post total hip replacement, with crutches. Mind you, my pace is slow but the point is, I'm able to actually do this. No pain in my hip. Not even in the rain! I will slow down a bit more when I fully transition to the cane, but again, I will still be moving and I will keep going!
I even braved a couple of craft sales with an awesome friend and had a great lunch outing with her today!
Bragging is done, thanks for bearing with me!
