thank you all I took your suggestions yesterday and wildly yesterday I did a power walk because I didn't know what else to do and I prayed while I was out and about and the thought of rest and taking it easy came to me. I did baby myself yesterday before I ever read these posts I believe that is a God thing...
Yesterday I was in a Rheumatoid Arthritis Flare I am still in one today but doing a bit better. I went further on this walk yesterday than I had ventured in the past. I was in pain when I began so I decided to press on. The walk actually helped quite a bit I started sweating out toxins. While out and about I came upon a vegetable stand that sets up every Saturday didn't know that and they had the green vegetables I had been desiring but my local store doesn't carry; this made me happy. I plan to have a big green salad today yummo.
I ended up walking all the way into town and while there I came upon a new shop I had been curious what it had become of. I opened the door to learn it was yet another salon however this was also a spa. My hands had been swollen from RA for the last week so I hadn't been able to do my hair this week talk about a bed head. The stylist did my hair and because it is spa focused they give a head and neck massage with every service. I didn't realize the power of a good massage; she was relieving major tension in my neck; let me tell you. It was worth every dollar.
While out and about I hand't ate anything that day because I had been feeling so lousy and I had walked further than before realizing if I didn't eat soon I would make myself sick in a worse way. I walked past some greasy spoon diners. I walked past several ice cream shops and into a party store. I grabbed a Protein Shake.
I had been planning at some point opening a new bank account planning on a savings account just for my upcoming winter trip to Arizona. I was waiting for the RA to subside before I ventured this task but while I was already in town I decided the bank is open I am here go inside. I opened my savings account and started putting the money in on my trip.
So now I have two bags of fresh produce, my hair is done, I have a new bank account, I drank protein to keep me going and vitamins to replenish me, I am sweating up a good storm, I am walking back carrying everything. Carrying the heavy bags probably would had been too much but I was at a state of relaxation that I made it almost all the way back to my cottage before I realized someone was following me. When I became self aware that I felt like someone was watching me I turned around to see what was going on and my husband was in the car behind me. He laughed and said I wondered how far I could go before you would notice. My husband works six days a week so him coming home early on a Saturday that was a surprise and a nice one indeed. He said I need you to get in the car I have a surprise for you. He took me two towns over where he had purchased a new automobile for me; Happy Birthday to me. My birthday was two weeks ago but we didn't do anything for it and he wanted to make up for that.
