real life strength

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Yesterday DH and I moved a couch from the living room into the den/study. Then we moved a couch from the basement into the living room. By this point I had broke a sweat. We hopped in the car and drove to some stranger's (yikes!) house because we bought a huge sectional couch on Craigslist. I love when rich people redecorate after 1 year. (score!) The seller said that he would help us get it in the van. "no, thanks! We got it." DH and I carried all the pieces together. Then we drove home and unloaded it all ourselves, which meant getting that beast down a flight of steps.

I'll admit that I was pretty proud of myself that I could do this. No need to call some guy friend to help. I lift and stuff! And I lift stuff in real life too! Isn't it such a great feeling to use your strength outside the gym?!

    Some of my most encouraging moments have been when I realize I actually have the energy/strength for productive, difficult work.

    Way to go! The feeling I love is when you are about to lift something heavy and a guy says "let me do that"... ummm.. no thanks. I got this! The look on their face sometimes is priceless.
