Oops! Only .7 mile, today. That is not far enough. Just so you know, The goal is “retrain the brain”, AND, I must work on my body at the same time. The doctor said that I need physical therapy for my knees and brain therapy for my brain!!! So, 80’s, here I come. I must Exercise, ready or not!!
So, this morning, I got up. Fed the cat. Had my breakfast. Put on my Nike stretch pants, a workout shirt, a warm coat (it’s Paris and in the 40’s outside), an ugly warm hat and look ugly while walking out the door! Well, looking good is not the goal. And, my brain doesn’t care what I look like!! And, the route was to be the road less traveled since the virus likes crowds. The mindset is “do it anyway.” One foot in front of the other, avec cane. 1 mile a walk is sufficient. Up the hill, across and back down another street. MAYBE get a coffee and croissant, if the toilette is accessible. Not a requirement. 1-mile workout.
I took photos! RED LETTER DAY!!!! Hey, it is a beginning. And, we need to focus on the brain and on the body. One step in front of the other. DO IT, ANYWAY!!
WALK OUT THE FRONT DOOR! YOU GOT THIS!!! anyway, it’s fun!
UP THE STREET (goal is to work the legs going up)
TURN RIGHT AT JASMINE (Pretty building and man who thought I was taking his picture and the picture of his sign haha)
JUST SOME PRETTY DOORS AND ARCHITECTURE AND “BANGLADESH HOUSE” (whatever that is)
JASMINE METRO STATION on MOZART (and uphill to Passy area but I am now going down toward the Auteuil area. This is sorta in the middle of the 16eme arrondissement.)
A PAUSE AT ONE OF THE LOCAL FLOWER SHOPS (SB Fleurs) WITH PHOTOS
SHOULD I GET A PAIN RAISIN AND COFFEE? YES!
AND HOME! FUN EXPLORATION AND MY BRAIN IS HAPPY AND SO IS MY BODY!
I bought lunch at the Bakery and a plant for the apartment, so I had to go home. And only .7 of a mile. That is NOT far enough. So, next walk I must add something, as I explore in my workout. Stay tuned…..
