Start'er up, lights hung and repeat lesson learned
The Mr put up the Christmas lights. No, they're not on. Those don't turn on until Thanksgiving night. We just like to get them up so he doesn't have to do them in crappy, cold weather. I remember quite a few years holding the Mr's ladder while he climbed up to do the gutters. Snow, sleet and slowly sinking into the flower beds is not awesome. What is awesome? These little gutter clippy thingies that the Mr just twists on a broomstick and latches onto the gutter with the lights attached. No ladders, no sinking into the flower beds and I don't even have to be out there anymore! WOOT! I've noticed a lot of people have their lights up and a few have full blown decorations up so I think I'm not the only one with the fever. Of course there are some people who are already doing their holiday bitching on Facebook or other social media and I had to hide them because I can't take 2 1/2 months of Grinchiness. Get over yourselves and think about the meaning behind the holidays, yeesh.
I am trying to figure out what workout I'm going to do today and if I'm smart (I'm not), I'll do it earlier than later. I need to do see how the legs are feeling today. I'm such an ass. I slacked on my leg exercises AGAIN for physical therapy and my legs are giving me the what for. When will I understand that this physical therapy is for LIFE. I don't have a choice. I think this happens to a lot of people. You just start feeling better and then you slowly start to slack because you feel better so you're cured, right? Nope. These strengthening exercises, stretches and deep massages are now required to walk without pain. Not just build it up for a month, then go a month without doing the things and have your legs go to crap all over again. I hope I'm not the only person foolish enough to keep making this mistake. I'll get it one day. I just know last night's Powerstrike workout was supposed to be "light" and my left foot was like "you SUCK...ZING."
I'm having the Mr take the test desserts I made last night to work. I'll wait for feedback and if you're cool with it, I'll post it next week so you can perhaps make it part of your Thanksgiving food coma table.
Are you a Christmas freak, fan or Grinch? Do you slack on physical therapy exercises you know you should be doing and pay for it later?
