|This is how my back feels.|
I ended my shift yesterday feeling something awful. With my back that is. And I had a massive headache that would not go away. My evening last night consisted of going to that lady’s house and walking in a ginormous garden in not the best choice of shoes and lifting a biggie bucket of water too. I’m not a fan of walking on uneven ground either — I had a childhood accident when I was three where my heel was mostly sliced off — and the scar tissue never healed properly … So walking all over this massive yard and yanking on thick garden hoses … probably wasn’t a wise choice either.
Sleeping was decent enough until I tried to get out of bed when my alarm went off this AM. I couldn’t move very well. In fact, I was stiff as a board. Everything ached. And my head was pounding. I have not felt this bad — all over body aches — since about the last time I really got on the exercise band wagon — which was years and years ago.
My PT friend and the awesome fit trainer I talked with earlier in the week WARNED me of over doing it right away. And my lovely cockiness brushed them off.
|My state (duh) and I live in the blue zone near Yankton.|
It is now late afternoon and my body’s aches and pains are telling me to go nap. I’m supposed to water that lady’s acreage every evening til next Tuesday. But I just went to our local weather online and this popped up. My county/town is in this severe thunderstorm watch until 9PM CST. I will see how I feel after my nappy and may just hold out to see if God is going to actually water our highly dry county.
I did manage to eat a decent lunch of shredded beef and some rice crackers. I have had plenty of ice water today. Supper tonight will probably be a bowl of fresh Yonanas of bananas and black cherries.
