Fall starts this month! *chiro approved dancing here*
I am hoping it's a month of physical healing.
Partly because I feel like I don't have much to blog about if I'm sitting around here being Gimpy McGimperson.
"What did you do today Anele?"
"Well, it was an upper body day so I did either resistance bands or free weights"
"What about today?"
Oh, I know! I go to the massage therapist today. I am looking forward to her stripping my muscles because after last week, the back of my knees have been pulling and I can't seem to relieve that. I think what is also frustrating is you try to do what they do and you come nowhere close. It's like you can't get the right angle or whatever. I'd love to not have to pay $49 a pop every time I want a massage.
Also, I did clean the house about 80% yesterday. Like the kind of clean where the bathroom is really the only thing that needs to be done and if someone dropped by I wouldn't be utterly humiliated...well, unless they wanted to use the bathroom. I'd have to tell them to go to the store up the street but I will take that. I did that because the Mr has been utterly crapped on by life both at home and work the past week and I could tell the mess was getting to him. He had to work overtime last night and I know how gross it is to come home from a crappy day at 8pm and walk into a stressful house. When he walked in the door, before he even closed the garage door, he exclaimed "WOW!" and repeated it several times and thanked me. So hope it helped coming home to an almost tidy abode. I did try to condense the amount of times I went up and down stairs because the stairs don't seem to be mah knees friends right now. I got through a good amount of the day before they asked for some ice pack relief. After The Mr got home, we ate dinner...
and he was very thankful he got up at 5:30am to do his workout and didn't have to do it then. After that it was upstairs for him to work on OUR computer that died during the day.
If anyone else needs some good ice packs, I have to highly recommend these. We originally got them for our shoulder injuries but they have come in handy big time for my Achilles and knees. They are incredibly adjustable so they stay put. A lot of times after a workout, I'll strap them on just to calm down the area before anything has a chance to gripe and wear them while I'm making dinner.
I go to the chiro tomorrow and I reeeeally hoping he gives me the okay to paddle. It uses the upper body but the hips do get involved a bit and it's supposed to be 79 and glassy so no need for overdoing it on the water. But if he says no, I won't. *kicks pebble* Gotta keep my eye on the prize.
Does a cluttered house make you more stressed?
