Reg, Indigo and I are heading out for another bushwalking adventure today.
Yesterday proved to be, an unplanned mini milestone due to the condition of the trek into the waterfall, with a steep slope covered in slippery leaf litter, no handrails, trees over the track to be climbed, over or under. It was a fun obstacle course and proved to be a great work out.
It was not a place where two elderly people with frail bones should have been, lol J, just two crazy seniors, having a ball J, lol, we even carried the dog as it was too risky for her to try to walk the track.
The scenery and companionship made it especially enjoyable and we are off to discover another good bush walk today, so my 12-week body transformation Mini Milestone will be these wilderness walks in the Atherton Tablelands.
Now if you think I am motivational, lol, look at that man of mine (photos above)J, he has had arthritis since early life, thought he was going to be wheelchair bound as a young man in his 20’s but has been on a bombardment of pig headed positive attitude, from his wife and good nutrition ever since and that arthritic almost 70 year old body is still going along.
Reg wears a pedometer every day and instead of going in for the hip replacement (yet), he is trying to clock in 10,000 steps and averages that every day.
No point wrapping yourself in cotton wool, anyhow, look what I did, to myself, (below picture), climbing out of the troopy, last Friday. I was entangled, in the seat belt as I descended from the car and went out headfirst. Ouch. I have not exercised as much as usual this week and I jarred myself all over, coming good today and know I did the right thing taking things slower for a week.
My biggest mini milestone the one that counts the most to me, has happened aside from physical activity. This week I have begun my major writing work, I have allocated time for writing novels. There is no looking back, now, nor just ‘pipe dreaming’ it will happen, I am doing it. Creative satisfaction is like oxygen to me , I NEED it. I have achieved a wonderful mini milestone for my life, this week.
