My daughter and the dog have been gone a year.
Now, I’ve still been cleaning with my sister a few hours a week and doing yard work. But the beach didn’t need as much cleaning this year, and I haven’t been up and down the hill 5 or 6 times and walking a mile or two a day. I’m not lugging as much laundry or groceries.
I was shocked at how weak I’ve gotten!
I got a couch from a really sweet woman that I clean for. I had been looking for a couch for a long time. I couldn’t find something that I liked – and could afford. I saw this couch sitting in her garage. It’s practically brand new, and it works in my house perfectly! The cat approves too.
So, I went with a friend to go pick it up on Saturday.
Getting it into the truck was a breeze.
When we got here and had to get the couch down the stairs and into the house – I could barely do it. It’s not a sleeper, and it isn’t that heavy. I hate asking for help in the first place, and now I couldn’t even manage my end. I was horrified.
I am going to have to get serious about working out! My resistance band is hanging right next to the desk. I think it’s time to start using them!
I don’t like walking outdoors once it gets cool – but I can dance more, and I have the Pace Express program that I should use.
Your body is truly use it or lose it – Yikes! I’ve gotten my wake-up call.
