Today, I almost gave up...
Thursday, January 31, 2013
I had just walked my first mile and my back and legs were killing me. Felt like I was being stabbed in the spine and my thighs were having ice cold pokers shoved into the long end of my thigh bones. Not a pleasant bit of imagery, but that is what the pain felt like.
I tried stretchng, I tried shortening my steps, I tried stepping in the middle of my foot (but I do that already, and I will NEVER be able to sneak up on anyone that way). I just tried. And then I quit. Even got my shoes off and was sitting on my bed holding my facein my hands. I kept peeking out onto my tracker spreadsheet where I keep track of my daily steps and started deleting exercises. Then I put them back. Then delete, then add back. I am so committed to making this happen, that I have an internal argument of what is going to be done today!
Finally, I put my shoes back on, put my yarn cap on to cover my ears, and my hoodie as well. The wind is about 20 mph in my backyard today and even though the sun is gorgeous, its only 54 degrees out there. Yesterday, same time of day, it was 85. So there is a major drop in temp and with that goes the "warm-boned" feeling I have gotten used to.
So I finished my 5k. Hauled some aluminum roofing over to my neighbor as he is building his granddaughter an underground bunker. She's 6 and has been watching Doomsday Preppers. Poor little girl, and poor Harold because he will build her anything she wants!!
So that, my friends, is my day. I have moved my dough to rise under my sheets because it's too cold in the house to rise. I have turned on the heated mattress pad, as both the bread and I both need it. When it's ready, I will bake it and be the first guinea pig. But if it works out okay, I am going to make more tomorrow. But this time I am going to get up early and do it versus passing back out all day long!
And tomorrow I will look forward to my workout again, I am sure. I have my nautilus exercises left to do, so in another 50 minutes I should be ready for a hot shower and bed! Yes, VERY early again!
Peace, Love, and Weird Dough,
