i have been increasing my activity level and it’s killing me
you think i am exaggerating – but i am not
today i was gardening and i over did it
muscle fatigue about 98%
and i don’t mean planting pansies in a window box
think “Little House on the Prairie” meets “Survivor Man”
i needed to hold something to get into the Hot Tub
i could not close the lid once I got out
i knew there would be issues when I went upstairs
as in i barely made it upstairs
i showered and felt the burn lifting my arms to shampoo
i lifted a leg to shave and my other leg started trembling
whoa, like REALLY trembling as in post marathon muscles
i came downstairs, one step at a time, slowly
like a toddler or an ancient person
sore? ohhhhh i surpassed sore a few hours ago
thank GOD for the hot tub and wine
i am taking an anti inflammatory IF I can make it back upstairs
and I have serious doubt I could get back down again tonight
i chuckled over a posting a friend put on Facebook
and I either cracked a rib or strained my spine
i closed Facebook to not risk any further exertions of humor
you know when you look at a Spartan man in a loin cloth?
and you can see every rippling man muscle?
well minus the rippling and man part
those are the muscles that hurt on me
like … all of them …
i swear to you, i can feel my fingernails growing
and we ALLLLLL know that today isn’t even the ‘hard’ day!
the next day is ALWAYS worse!
Lord help me
my kingdom for a body rub
