Did it list, Feb 2-8

To keep myself motivated and to remind myself that I am doing as much as I can I am going to be posting a list of the things I do each day that take up my time and energy.

Note: I don’t walk fast, I often go window shopping because of the weather, for me with my knees so bad even slow walking and standing can be difficult so I time it instead of figuring mileage.
