Saturday Posting....

Y'all know its out of character for me to post on the weekend but since I neglected you and my workouts all week long I can at least post on Saturday.  I may have missed my regular gym workouts but I sure did get a good calorie burn for the week.  I bet I burned more calories this week than I did last month combined. 

We worked for 2 days last week at the school and I thought we were done and I was going to get to go to they gym, but then....Football Friday came along and the field needed painting.  We had worked too hard at this point to let it go.  So this week on top of yard work galore I can also add "Paint Football Field" to the Special Skills on my resume!

Before...

After!
After working all day on the field I went home to shower and lick my wounds and came back for the game Friday night.  My body was aching so bad I almost couldn't enjoy the game.  I just wanted to go home and lay my head down on the pillow!  We didn't win the game but the field looked great and we scored so it was a success as far as I'm concerned. 

When I got home I nursed my wounds yet again.  I was beat and bruised worse than I would think yard work would beat me up.

The splinter that is tiny but hurts soooo bad, and the foot that looks terrible and doesn't hurt as bad as the finger.

BTW...yes I did hurt my foot by myself with no help from my sister, but you didn't have to call me out in the comments!!!!

and blisters galore!

I got a killer nights sleep...I mean 12 hours of unconsciousness and it was much needed.  I haven't slept in what feels like months and I think I finally pushed my body to its limits. 



Today was a day of rest at my house.  My wounds are healing nicely, I can actually walk again normally, and all my clothes are washed and my house is clean.  Those were two things that were completely neglected last week as well as my workouts and my blog. 

Then tonight I got a nice little surprise.  I went on a date night with my niece to dinner and to a local concert.  I was not really looking forward to it but it ended up being a great dinner and great fun at the concert/show.  I'm glad we got to hang out this weekend cause she is leaving me to go off to college next week.

Hopefully next week I can do better than this week.  As far as I know my sisters haven't signed me up for any yard work activities yet and other than a dentist appointment to fix a broken tooth I will spend the majority of the week catching up on my gym time!!!!  Cant wait!!!!!
