I was so inspired by your post that I WILL begin today.
I had pneumonia about 4 years ago and was hospitalized for 8 days. I was taking in so little oxygen by the end that just getting out of bed required stopping and focusing on my breathing.
Long story short, I was a brown belt in Kenpo Karate before my illness and after my recovery I was a couch potato.
Last Saturday I challenged myself to run "all out" as far as I could and I made it 3 driveways down from mine, then it took 8 minutes to get my breathing back to normal.
We have a long road to travel, but what else is life but a long road to travel?
I'll post again when I've done what I am able to do today and I hope you read it, even if you don't want to post.
We CAN make it through the first day, even if it takes us weeks!
