Blessings?

Lately I find myself forgetting what item or items I’m going after when I navigate my rollator from our all-purpose room to another room. 

There is an upside, though, to the aggravation of repeated trips. Each trip adds to the mileage recorded on my iPhone. That helps me meet my goal of walking more than a mile a day. And that's a blessing.

The day I started this post was a 1.2 mile day. Not great but not bad for a stormy day with heavy rain and lots of thunder and lightening that limited me to walking circuits inside our two-bedroom home. 

 When Hubby and I make it to a walking track or another outdoor space that has easy-to-navigate surfaces, I can usually make it well beyond that 1.2 mile total for the day.

A side effect of this walking activity has also created an urge I can't seem to resist--to check my iPhone throughout the day for my latest mileage.

At least that iPhone addiction keeps me moving. That's another blessing.

  1. I too firmly believe it is all about the moving and keeping moving and walking in the house outside the house anywhere you can walk even if it's round and round in circles in your living room. I am doing the same thing as you just not tracking how many miles I just tracked my time

  2. I have always thought that senior memories was God's gift to make sure we get enough exercise:) Like the idea of Him being my fitness trainer.

  5. I check my steps at least a dozen times a day. My goal is a minimum of a mile a day and in the winter when it was slippery out I found I could walk a mile + in my apartment building. I walk in the halls. I might look a little funny, but I'm getting my steps.

    1. Since publishing this post, circumstances have resulted in my walking around inside to make a mile, too. It's encouraging to know someone else checks mileage!
