I jumped! I jumped!

Sure, they were teeny tiny jumps in a fabric (no height) ladder on the floor, but I did it. Iím so excited. Jumping with both feet at the same time sounds so simple, but it signifies HUGE progress for me.

Today was my 9th session with my personal trainer, 5 weeks. I originally thought Iíd do once a week, but Iím so happy with my progress that Iím going to continue 2x a week.

Rereading this,I guess I sound ridiculous. At one point I was working so hard to do something simple that I started laughing at myself. My wonderful trainer immediately understood, cautioned me not to laugh, and complimented me on my progress.

I jumped!

Good for you!
This is the ladder that looks like something from the football combine, right?
When I was recuperating from my hip replacement, I was always glad my therapist didn't torture me with it!

This is a big deal because you have feel good about it. I have some personal goals I need to meet, and honestly I took those things for granted not knowing I'd reach a time that there would be a struggle. Way to go, especially for not giving up.

Keeping your physical coordination up is an excellent idea. Good for you! You are an inspiration to us all as we become older and hopefully wiser.
