I think some of my recent upturn in mood is attributable to the exercise program I’ve set for myself. I was starting to feel that way back in the spring when I was doing a lot of walking with Jeannie, but then she went off maternity leave and back to work, coinciding with warmer daytime weather, and the walking sort of fell by the wayside.
I will have to admit I feel the aches and pains that programs with stretching and working with weights are apt to bring on. If I move my left arm a certain way, it lets me know that it just wants to rest at my side. And walking does the same thing with my legs.
No matter what discomforts I have I hope I will continue doing what I’m doing. I won’t go any higher than 2# with the weights, though, at least for now. The AM and PM stretch sessions that I began yesterday are excellent. I remember now how good I was beginning to feel when I lived in North Carolina and this was part of my daily routine. The biggest problem is finding the space to stretch out in without hitting the furniture or the dog.
I have been lightly searching the ads within CA and surrounding states for the truck camper I would like to travel with. I want nothing elaborate, i.e., no slides or fancy electric things with remotes. I just want to be able to travel to places that might otherwise be off limits to a larger rig, and/or spaces that I can back in to easily.
While I like all the comforts of life, I think there are a lot of them I can do without, keeping just those that I need. I realize that I could straighten up the 5th wheel so that it looked pretty presentable, but this apartment is entirely different – don’t know why that is. I can’t even blame Lady for cluttered countertops!
So I will keep looking at leisure for now, and hope I can come up with something that will serve me well for a few years.
