    Welcome to the first weekend of winter frost. Icy roads, slippy under foot. Its time to hibernate. Failing that fly south for the winter. I am still trying to decide. All is well with my steps at least. Its like a flourish of spring cleaning. Locating various Christmas presents squirraled away last January has been my biggest challenge this week. Stay safe everyone.

    Cold wet miserable weather. Typical start to British winter. Christmas adverts. Me making my ultimate winter comfort food. Spare ribs, bbq sauce, cabbage and mash. Running round the house to keep my step numbers up. Just hope the neighbours can't see me. Keep warm and be safe out there everyone.

    Special weekend now. Remembrance Day. Proud to do my walk of 11k to raise money for the Royal British Legion. Last year over £20,000 was raised from my walking group. Hope we can beat this. Shops are getting more Christmassy every week. Rain, rain and more rain. Keep safe out there everyone.

    November tomorrow. Proud to do my walk for Royal British Legion. Weather is getting colder. I was saying to the lady in a shop with the changable British weather we always have something to talk about. Makes a change from Brexit but then now it will be the election. Shame really as I don't think any of them deserve our vote. It would send a clear message to them. For now I will keep walking and do it to remember those who gave so much. Many paying the ultimate price to ensure we have a future.

    Better day today. Physio is going OK but progress is slow and painful. Decided to go with the flow and get organised for Christmas. All I need is 2 white small nutcrackers for the tree. I badly struggled this afternoon, pain was so bad and struggled to walk. Twice as many steps today no wonder I hurt. Not much longer to complete my goal. Keep going everyone the finish line is in sight.

    So its October and the shops are alive with Christmas. All I needed was a small pair of scissors and more and more boxes kept coming through the door. Note to self if scissors break make sure its before October. Physio is going well building up stronger muscle and hopefully able to free the hip helping movement thus delaying replacement for a time. We shall see. Hope it works. Have a charity run in April. Just completed the Scream to Run Faster challenge.

    October tomorrow. Its getting colder and my thought are turning to pastures warm and sunny. Time to check for a holiday to keep away the winter blues. Keeping on track for my exercise( walking). Much more of a struggle though with needing a hip replacement. Keep going everyone.

    Another Marathon completed this month. OK it's only a virtual one which takes over a week to complete. It's a marathon though. So my trip to the local shop this week made me break out in hives and a cold sweat. At my age seeing Christmas in September is not good. Why is it getting earlier every year? Or is that just my imagination? I think the trick is just to keep moving and trust your instinct. I can avoid the offending aisle until mid November. Now its time to reset my fitbit that has decided to be as old as me and fail to synchronise any more. Maybe its time to be considering a new one.

  • Not really an incentive to walk but tubs of chocolate for £3.50 was a good enough reason? I actually try and take a tin of Roses for friends and staff at my hotel in Florida. This time round we hope to volunteer some time in a special place for sick children from around the world. So a tub of Heros would be appropriate here. My mission was to find a tub with an expiry date past April next year. This proved to be mission impossible. Given its only September there is still time to complete this. Important as its for all the check in staff at our annual charity run in Orlando. Done mid April for the last 10 years. No not really an incentive and each tub remains sealed. My reward cuppa and biscuit. Another week of my challenge completed.

    Another good week. Pain meds changeover has been OK but still having more pain than usual. Keeping up with my steps though. Now into September and its grey, dull and raining. Still warm though. Hard to believe how peoples thoughts are turning to Christmas. I decided to focus on doing a charity 3 months for those injured by drunk drivers. Funny how they almost always walk away without a scratch. Keep up the good work everyone.

    Doing my leg strengthening exercises all round the house. Walking sideways is very odd even more odd when my knees are tied together. At my age its hard to decide if having a hip replacement now or when I am older is better. I guess as long as the pain is kept at bay deciding one month at a time will work. Walking " normally" has been good too and slowly getting my motivation back. Pain is obviously less. Heading towards September that month brings more goals. Lets do this.

    Just left the house in shorts and top and it started. A deluge of rain and thunder. Turned around and just did a short work out set by my physio this week. Designed to strengthen hip and leg muscles. Doesn't do much for my hip pain though.. Just about managing now to keep up my steps. Totally lost motivation with all that's going on.

    Finally we have rain so its much cooler. Its been too hot to do much including sleeping. Salads are ok for a day or two then they get very boring and un-inspiring. Still it's healthy or so they say. Nearly another month over. Tried with the flower sprinker for my great grandaughter it just did not dance around the way we expected it to, she had fun though with all her garden toys. Great to watch a 2 1/2 year old try and figure put how to use a bat and ball. She concentrates so hard on problem solving. She is my inspiration.

    Just submitted my evidence for another 5 k. Changed pain meds as my hip is very painful. Just about managing now. Waiting for an appointment for orthopaedic surgeon with a view of being listed for a hip replacement. Hopefully it will improve things.

    Doing OK still on track with my steps. Getting towards school holidays now. Just a few jobs to do in the garden, including making a bench. Bought a new hose to attach to the sprinkler for my great grand daughter. She loves water play in the garden.

    Another month and a new set of challenges to be done. Now my leg problem has been dealt with. A new right hip is needed. Time to prepare for that and get on with my life. All I can do now is my best. It certainly won't defeat me just made me more determined to build my strength so my recovery will be short. I have a feeling the Mud Run will need to be cancelled.

    Great week family get togethers for birthdays. I made cake to celebrate. Walking is improving and finding a pace that suits me and my age as well as the most important factor, my medical condition. Just keeping focused and pushing forward. Got another 5 km award this week. Well motivated.
