I had to force myself to go. I think I may have a limited pool of motivation, and I’m using it all for work right now.
Ok. That statement was full of shit. I’m just not pushing myself hard enough.
Time to dig deep.
were my workout today. I had to haul about 20+ of them into my garage. He moved a bit more than that. And then we moved the rest using a pallet jack. Like, quite literally, he was pulling on one part of the handle and I was pulling on the other, to get the 1500 lbs of cement on the pallet into our garage as well. And we did that four times. It was harder than it sounds. Because our driveway is on an incline. So we had to pull 1500 lbs up a hill, into our garage. Four times.
There was a moment, when we had tried pushing one of the loads up the hill instead of pulling it. We stopped, looked at one another, and laughed our asses off. It was impossible.
I don’t know if that’s even impressive, that I lifted 80 lb sacks of cement. Maybe, because I only weight about 115 lbs. It was actually easy to do, but I’m just thankful as all get out that we didn’t have to move all the bags of cement on all the pallets.
That’s next Sunday.
Thursday. Work has kept me really preoccupied, so much so that I haven’t had time to be really chatty lately. I apologize. The problem is, between work and holiday obligations and my normal lifestyle, I don’t see myself getting free time any time soon.
I do make it a point to carve out time to run, though. I ran last night, and I thought I would be exhausted, b/c I had stayed up late the night before, working. For some reason, certain mental tasks end up making me feel more tired than running does.
But last night was another strong night. I think my body runs well in the cold. It’s been cold here lately, between 20 and 50 degrees, and it’s going to snow in the higher elevations tonight.
And here I am, working again, on a Friday night. When the kids go to bed, I’m going to bed. To cuddle with the hubby and watch a movie. Maybe sketch. Decompress.
In reality, I will probably climb into bed, give the hubby a kiss, and doze off right away. I slept a grand total of 30 minutes to 1 hour last night, between working late into the night and taking care of a sick baby.
But no worries, that’s life. And life, my friends, is beautiful.
with a little bit of cardio on Sunday.
When I stopped to get some water at a fountain in the park today, a little girl stopped me and told me I was pretty. So, so sweet. Not as pretty as you, little lady, but thank you all the same. :)
