just another day of life

On the heel of the miffed experience... and yes I am over it; I pulled a hamstring. I hate that so much. That is part of the reason I am in physical therapy in the first place. With the hamstring pulled tight I can't walk or move because it hurts, and my knee is very unstable. Like it goes out on me and makes me fall. Those are the reasons I am in physical therapy. I have to remember that the next time the guy ticks me off and just do my routine. If that wasn't annoying enough I also re-injured my shoulder and I can feel the muscle burning in there. It is going to be a mobic day and a take it slow day.
I got a few things lined up, but it's ok if it doesn't all get done. That part I love about my life; we are in a space that it is accepted what we do and what we leave for another day. Like my hubby has the living room crowded with tools and stuff he pulled out of the cabinet to reorganize. Found a few treasures in there he forgot where there in the first place.... like a couple paint by numbers he wanted to work on. It's the same with my projects, we get it done in our own time and our own pace. Anyone who visits us accepts that without comment. LOL, we had a huge scaffolding set up in our living room for almost 4 years because my hubby was working on the ceiling. Well, in his defence .. he had a heart attack in that time frame and wasn't allowed on the scaffolding. I live in a dom house and the ceiling in it's highest part is 24 feet. There are two sky lights up there and one of the ceiling fans was bringing in carpenter ants and rainwater when it rained, because the previous owner installed the fans as an afterthought and wired them from the outside in. Yah, huge mess, we fixed all that and brought things back up to code. We also replaced the roof and installed an ice shield.... best thing we did.
but I get off the track walking down memory lane...
After swim Wednesday I did circuit training on Thursday and had an amazing workout. I was flying and pushed myself a little to hard. That's how I pulled my hamstring and hurt my shoulder. So I wanted to take it easy Friday, but with that energy bundle called grand daughter there is NO taking easy. I was so tired last night I fell into bed and slept in this morning. ...and taking my inflammation pills.
I lost this week more weight, actually I am at my lowest in five years. I also know the best thing for me is to get back to moving those muscles that hurt, so they don't go stiff on me. I move them but don't work them like I did on Thursday and I'll be back on track in no time. I have company coming tomorrow... my son and his wife are visiting from Fort Worth and we are so looking forward to that. I been cooking yesterday and getting things lined up so I can spent time visiting rather than cooking when they get here. And the other benefit is that I'll have meals in my freezer for it as well. I do once a while a huge cooking session just to put food in the freezer for days I don't feel like cooking or my hubby and I want different things or just to free time for other stuff. When we were out on Thursday we stopped at a bakery outlet and bought up a bunch of specialty bread for the freezer. I get my high fiber bread (45 cal each slice) that way at half the cost from the grocery store; plus it's fresh! We got some special grain breads that have flax or oats and such things in them and are high in fiber, low in sugar... the high fiber offsets the carbs a bit for my hubby being diabetic and a slave to carbs. For me it's just the way I like my bread, with a bit something to crunch on. And I am definitely in rambling land... how did I get here? Oh, who cares... I'll let it all be now and go do something productive, like have some breakfast and start my day... Happy weekend everyone.
