Ahead of schedule

My PT trainer says I won't need her assistance for much longer. I'm making excellent progress. Yay!
Just like logging my food each day, I also track my PT exercises and walking. My exercises include stretches, strengthening and balance. I am amazed at the number of muscles used to balance on one foot! Did you know that besides ears and muscles, your balance is also controlled with your eyes? Focusing on a spot at eye level and across the room greatly improves my one-legged stands. Another plus is that this exercise can be done any time of day, and most anywhere. Standing in line at the grocery store is a great place. (It's good for toe-lifts too.)
My walking is up to 1.5 miles now. I am working towards my first goal of 3 miles. Then I can start walking for groceries, coffee, and dining out. I increase the distance by another quarter mile every 3rd outing. I will do this! After that, I will start walking/hiking on hills again. Grin!
Have a good week everyone.
