I'm chuffed!

Yesterday we went for a walk around a garden centre that has a small nature walk as well as all the usual stuff. The walk started off downhill and my husband asked if I would be alright getting back up. I decided to try it - if you don't try, you don't know. I was delighted to find that I could do it with minimal huffing and puffing and only a couple of coughs. True, I was very slow, but I made it and had the energy left to carry on walking around the garden centre. A few months ago, after a year of recurring infections, I could hardly walk anywhere, let alone up hills! I'm so chuffed.

Of course you are entitled to feel chuffed for any improvement, uphill is the most difficult, well done 😊

I haven't been able to manage uphill for a couple of years. I don't know what's caused the improvement except I haven't had an infection since November. It's been a very positive time for me and I appreciate all your encouragement.

Well done! We had a bridge near where I work I it was a big mental hurdle to me. The day I got over it without having to rest on the way up was such a great sense of achievement. x

It's the best feeling, isn't it?! Well done for getting over the bridge!!

That's fantastic, so pleased for you! You must've been on cloud nine. And the more exercise you take, the fewer infections you'll get. It's win-win 😊

I couldn't agree more! It's so nice to feel I can take the exercise without coughing my heart out. Fingers crossed it will continue. Hope you are well too. xx
