Warm Weather Equals Better Mobility For Me

Last week, I went on a mini vacation because my granddaughter was graduating from high school and I wasn’t going to miss that for anything and honestly I needed to relax, forget about everything,get out of NE Ohio for a bit and enjoy the company of my daughter,granddaughter and son in law and hit a mini reset button. My husband stayed home as he had to work. 
My mini vacation taught me a lot. First, I realized that the old adage about your body taking a few days to relax is completely true. It’s that control thing. 
It took 2-3 days before I finally stopped thinking about the support group I started and am the administrator of and just chill as I have good moderators who are handling it. 

Wondering if my husband had enough food..etc 
It didn’t help that I had my smartphone which meant I was still able to peak at Twitter, email, and Facebook.

But I did relax, forgot about everything back home and just enjoyed my family. 
I was a bit nervous when I saw all the stairs in my daughters home . I haven’t been able to do stairs in 3 years, but since warm weather started in Ohio and I have been faithful with my Vit D , Curamed Curcumin and Krill, and eating healthy was the norm instead of just an occasional thing which I know has helped,plus I do use my recumbent bike to keep joints somewhat mobile and I have made it up a few stairs at my cousins , harder going up than coming down. 
But I figure if I went slow I could do it worst case scenario I sleep on sofa. 
But I did ok. 

I was slow going up and a bit faster going down. Although not any where as fast as I used to be. 

I have seen that the warmer the climate I can move a bit easier. With less pain. 

I even went for a walk with my daughter and their 2 Yorkies. 
It was a beautiful sunny hot steamy morning and I loved it. 
My face was red as a tomato but I loved it. My daughter asked if I was ok mid walk as my face was that red, but I felt fine.
I even managed to lose 3 lbs in 5 days. Being able to be slightly more active is a great thing. Especially when you have dealt with pain in bones from osteoarthritis and osteonecrosis . 
I really love the weather warm, I hear so many complain and yet for me it means a bit more mobility and less pain. 
I can see a life of less pain and slight increase in mobility living in a warmer climate.
That’s why it’s important to me to move. 
I can’t say I’d be able to be totally pain free and cured I’d be kidding myself but just having the ability to walk around a block is like a gift of freedom for me. 

So besides seeing my granddaughter graduate HS 

and spending time with daughter and son in law. Florida helped me be more mobile less pain and I am grateful 

Another reason to love the sunshine state.
