Today was a big day for me… Not only was I FINALLY able to eat normal food for every meal and not regret it for the first time in several days (thanks so much food poisoning!), but I was able to work out for the second day in a row. Honestly, I am not sure that I remember the last time that happened. :o/ Sad, I know. But I have been living with this shoulder injury that has been flaring up on and off since September (and has mostly been stuck in “on” mode), plus have been plagued with a few illnesses during that time. So I am feeling psyched about today.
Not only did I get in my scheduled three-mile walk with Leslie Sansone, but I also spent fifty minutes shoveling our driveway out (we got yet another eight inches of snow. Goodbye winter!) and the pulled my daughter around on her way-too-small sled for a bit. (That is her, perched on top of one of the piles of snow from clearing the driveway. I think she likes it when we have to shovel!) Then, on top of that, the DVD I did incorporated some arm exercises, which I decided to try. And I did them! Were my muscles singing? You bet! They have barely been used for months! But it felt AMAZING!!! Seriously, I actually highly miss strength training. It is one of the best feelings in the world. So I am hoping that this trend can continue and I can start working (lightly) on my arms again.
And, yes, I will absolutely say that I never would have ever thought that I would be the type of person to say that I missed doing some form of exercise. Never. But I definitely do! And it felt great to get back in the saddle tonight!
And, in a completely unrelated tangent, I have to say that I will never grow tired of hearing my daughter play with her toys and all the voices she comes up with and conversations she has. Seriously… It is one of the best things ever!
