In all my years I never remember celebrating May Day. Maybe we did something in grade school but I surely don't remember. I think it would have been fun to run around the Maypole!
Changing gears here I am going to call a Mayday on myself. That's right my body is in a state of distress and it is calling to me.....help me Debby, help me!
So I've decided that I have to push myself and try harder. It is really easy to sit back and say I can't do it because of my COPD/Severe Asthma but I am going try and what better day than today! I've been eating a healthy diet for a few years now but you can't lose weight without some exercise.
I am going to try to walk down to our pool area today. Of course walking down to the pool is the easier part of this. Walking back up to the house will be the hard part because we are at the top of a hill. Not sure I will do it everyday but I will try to walk there several times a week.
Hopefully this will set me up for swimming when they start to heat the pool for Memorial Day. Living in Southern California doesn't mean warm pool water. Our nights are always cool and we would heat the pool at our last house most of the year. They only heat our beautiful neighborhood pool from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
So hopefully I will be able to manage walking down to the pool and back by the end of May so I can stay at the pool to do water exercises. If I find the walk is too much then I will drive to the pool like I did two summers ago before I had my bout with acute pericarditis and several other issues since then.
Hope everyone has a great first day of May and a wonderful weekend!
