Saturday November 1, 2014

I woke up this morning with intense pain in both knees. It was very discouraging because yesterday I thought I was doing better. I finally decided (or was forced) to take it easy today. I’ve only got 5000+ steps, 9 active minutes, and 2.25 miles, but on the plus side, my knees are feeling a lot better. I did struggle through a walk for Oliver because I really didn’t want to break our pattern or disappoint him, but we just went .5 miles. I was able to start my day with my writing and I now have the first chapter of my next novel written with a total of 3028 words. National Novel Writing Month (hereafter known as NaNoWriMo2014) is off and running!! Then I sewed the back for my sister’s quilt, pinned it, quilted it, and finally squared it. I’ve also cut the binding so I hope to finish it and pack it up tomorrow so I can ship it out to her on Monday. After that I started a new fun puzzle called The Mouse House. Now it’s time to start changing clocks back.

  1. I’m sorry to hear of today’s pain and resulting limitations. I would tell you not to push yourself too much, but then I remember how I respond to those words.
    Hope tomorrow is better. 🙂

  2. Thanks so much! Yes, I don’t listen to those comments really well. That’s what’s landed me where I am, but I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to work my way back to my former levels. 🙂

  3. Thanks, Lydia. I’ve lowered my goals for the moment to 5000 steps, 2.25 miles, and 10 active minutes. Not sure I’m going to manage that today, but I know my previous goals are definitely out of reach at the moment at least. 🙂
