Rough Start on Daily Exercises 

OK, I MEANT to wake up early and get my exercise routine going but… I didn’t… It wasn’t MY fault though! I could not sleep last night! Someone thought 2am was a great time to come blast the TV and also crash dishes around the kitchen, run the microwave (it was loud at the time haha) and cough without attempt to suppress the noise so I did not get much sleep! I woke up LATE feeling like crap, I was dizzy, and of course, fatigued.

I at least made a good breakfast, strawberry oatmeal! I cut the strawberries, added a bit of brown sugar, honey, and vanilla extract. I thought it might be a bit plain but it was actually pretty good! So I lazed around, thought about how I SHOULD work out, but instead looked at some old photos and uploaded them on Facebook. Why hide my past? I actually did stuff that I forgot about thanks to my crappy memory and I don’t want to loose that, it’s part of me! Loosing my memory is like loosing my identity so I should hold on to that…

Anyways I finally could not sit still so I went for a walk. Just about a mile (round trip) to the park. No soft ball games or creepy dudes in the woman’s bathroom to bug me so I just relaxed. It was a little warm today so I did not feel like moving around too much. I called a friend, we talked, and then, I left. Nice and simple. I should mention, when I get tired from walking I feel my back arching backwards, is this my muscles tensing up or my body over compensating for balance? I have no clue but it sucks!

Hopefully I can sleep well tonight and start my routine up tomorrow! Fingers crossed!

    For me it´s my knees that tries to bend backwards when I get tired.
    And – living in Sweden, my problem is the opposite from yours.
    Ice! It´s very hard to stay on your feet with weak legs and bad balance, trying to walk on slippery ice!
    So, I don´t get out much……..

    I understand, trying to walk on hardwood floors and tiles with socks and spasticity feels like walking on ice, it's horrible!
