Went for a long walk this afternoon. Went with my mom and sister, we went to a local lake and did two laps around it. It was lovely. I felt really good after it. I walked for 2 miles. We also sat and had a coffee afterwords. It was nice. And good I got some exercise in too today. That part I am delighted about.
Brought Nitro too. He made lots of friends. Everyone kept admiring him and saying how beautiful he was. Talk about being a proud mama! I was so proud of my furbaby! He was loving being out for a walk, his second walk of the day!
Got back home about an hour ago. Am planning on chilling out this evening. Just relaxing and watching X factor on tv, and maybe also reading for a while.
We can safely say that after an hour of walking, I am totally and absolutely exhausted.
I am not at all fit. I do need to change that so I plan on walking as much as I can, when I can.
I walked this morning with my PA to the local supermarket, I had to go to the ATM to get money. We went to the cafe there to have a drink too while we were there, we needed to rest our feet.
It took 30 mins to walk there from my house, and 30 to walk back again. I took nitro so he got a walk too. He’s wrecked now too.
We met another guide dog in the cafe. He looked exactly like nitro.
Walking is good for me though, that’s what I keep telling myself.
I just took a lovely walk in the park with Nitro. It was really nice to get out in the fresh air and stretch my legs. I needed it. I was feeling a lot after todays therapy session. I needed to clear my head.
I did a few laps of the park. There are 3 different trails you can do. I did the smaller ones first. Mom was with me and she was having difficulty with her breathing so we had to go slow but it was still very nice.
Now I am feeling great. My head is clear and I feel able to think clearly again. I asked mom if she wanted to go again tomorrow evening. I’m staying at my parents tonight and tomorrow. She said we could do that. It is a beautiful day here today too. The sun is shining and its just so nice, not too hot and not too cold, just how I like it.
I feel so good! I really pushed myself this morning. We went to the park next to where I do the ILS course, and I did four laps. Normally I do 3. I’ve never done more than that. I used to be only able to do two before I would get out of breath. Now I am up to four! I cant believe it! I feel so proud of myself. I am making progress! It took me 20 minutes to do four laps. Then I came inside and ate a big bowl of soup, it was carrot, cellery, onion and chick pea soup that we made this morning. It was delicious! The only thing is, my tutor fell in the park, nitro knocked her over! He was off the lead and he came running at both of us and crashed into her and knocked her over! silly doggie! He had a ball though running around. He was in his element and had so much fun! He needs that. He needs to burn off his energy. I love giving him space to free run at least once a week if I can. He enjoys it as well. Now my tutor just told me she had to write up an incident report. Always a drama around here. There are so many rules if you so much as get a tip. But because her knees are sore she said she’d better do it just in case she had to go to her gp at the weekend. so yeah. But its been a good morning. Going home in an hour. Cant wait, bring on the weekend!
today I am going to the beach with my mom and my sister. Its a really nice day here weather wise. So we said we’d make the most of it and go off to the beach.
We are taking a lunch and going to have our lunch on the beach. My sister is taking her kids in swimming, there is a swimming pool by the beach, so me and mom said we’d have a coffee while she does that.
Then we are going to walk the length of the beach, so I will definitely get my exercise in today.
I am excited. I love the beach. Its our first time on the beach this year. Now I know summer is finally coming!
Its 8 Am. And I feel so good! I got up at 6:30 this morning. I decided that today is going to be the day I get motivated and start my work outs on the treadmill. So I went on, set my timer for 20 minutes, and went at quite a fast speed for the duration. It felt so good! I had turned on my heating in the house so when I was done I was really sweaty and had to jump in the shower afterwords. I plan on doing another 20 minutes tonight. I plan on doing this twice a day from now on. I wish I wasnt blind and could see what I’ve burned calory wise and stuff but maybe when I get my new apple watch today or tomorrow it will tell me what calories i’ve burned and how far I’ve walked etc. The main thing is though that I feel good and it is working for me!
me and nitro are having a great weekend. quiet but good.
his ears are still not any better though, I am sad to say. The vet last Thursday said they were very mucky, there was still a lot of gunk in them.
It looks likely he will have to go on oral antibiotic eardrops if the drops she put in last Thursday dont start working soon.
We didnt get out for a walk today because it was rainy and the grounds were slippery and I didnt fancy getting soaked so decided to just stay home with him and relax, so he slept, and so did I!
Tomorrow morning maybe we’ll go out. He’s not whimpering though or shaking as much so maybe just maybe the eardrops are working and his ears need to get worse before they will get better.
Here is hoping.
