172 - Owie

My underarms and the back of my calves are very, very tender today, but all in all I'm surprised more things don't hurt. I actually made it through the second day of exercise without killing myself. I used tomato cans instead of my 5 lb weights for the majority of the routine, but I did incorporate them in the last set. Now I'm moving like an old woman, but at least I didn't have to sprint for the bathroom this time. Tomorrow I'll use water bottles, the tomato cans didn't feel like they had much weight to them... not that it stopped the pain...

Now that I've said all that, I notice it actually hurts to type... I never knew I used my biceps to type but I do... they feel all tight and uncomfortable so this is going to be a short one (no laughing -- I'm serious).

So tonight I'm going to be cozied up on the couch, listening to the rain, not doing much of anything... especially moving around. I've ordered in because I don't feel like driving and I don't feel like cooking. I feel like watching bad movies and taking a nap. Zzzzz...

Tomorrow maybe I'll get around to round three of cleaning out my closet. I still go in there every day and feel overwhelmed by the amount of clothes I have, so I reach for the same five to ten shirts. Then again, I should probably wait on the results from working out... some of what I don't wear just doesn't fit right at the moment. Hmmmm. Conundrum.

I haven't started on the garage organization yet, other than hanging a rack to organize shovels and brooms and such. I need to buy another shelving unit to replace that useless space-consuming workbench. I am procrastinating... because underneath it is a stack of tiles the previous owners left behind. I really dread lugging those out to the curb... but I have no use for them and some are actually broken, so they're trash. That kind of thing was typical of the people who lived here... they welcomed me home with a smear of cat piss in what is now my library, and a toilet that didn't flush. The bastards knew it too, they adjusted the chain to where the water level wouldn't overflow... but it tried to. My very first flush was not a happy one. I definitely recommend a walkthru before you sign those papers... just to make sure the plumbing works and the floors are reasonably clean.

I saw a picture of the house Extreme Makeover built... I can't find it at the moment because someone else showed it to me and I don't know where they found it, but it was beautiful. I can't wait to see the episode when it airs in March (?). I was reading that Jessica Alba donated some solar panels for the roof and the company the husband works for donating a year of free energy. Sounds pretty awesome to me!
