I am so out of whack…

I am so tired of hurting. I wish I was a millionaire or at least had an extra $30.00 not earmarked for groceries/bills to go back to the chiropractor. I can say my arm and neck is finally better. YEAH!!! But I think from favoring that side and sitting funny and all, my lower back and left hip hurt and it’s making my left thigh very sore. Now it didn’t stop me from working out last night but it did stop me from running. I went 2.5 miles in 33 minutes but at a walk/jog. I did do my weights but instead of 100 reps did 50. I did go swimming and that seemed to help a lot. Tonight I think I am going to just do a power walk here at home so that tomorrow morning I can give my workout a good push at the gym. I don’t know if I’m pushing myself to much or just feeling my age this month. It’s just a pain…in more ways then one. :o)

Eat is so excellent, I’m on plan and doing it right. We are getting new menus tomorrow (I think). And Allan is talking about more new menus after that. I love the variety of these menus. I was going to ask Allan if for some reason we couldn’t do a day in that weeks menu could we substitute one for a different week. I don’t have access to a grocery store except on Sundays and when the menu's come out at different times I just want to be sure it’s okay to change a day, not the food part the day. I’m doing my best to follow the challenge.

I wish it was more then hump day today, more like TGIF but it’s not and it’s not that I’m tired of working with the wee ones cuz that just isn’t ever going to happen, it’s just I’m tired of hurting and want to sleep the day away. Probably couldn’t but can wish about it. I know that this will work it’s way out, it always does and I’m being a baby about it cuz you guys care and listen where my guys here…well they are men and if they aren’t hurting it really doesn’t matter much. I’ll quit complaining now.

It’s a beautiful sunny day today. We went to the library and had a great time, went to Kim’s for a visit and lunch and after nap went outside and I carried in wood while the kids played in the mud. We collected 18 eggs today, the chickens are loving this warmer weather too. In fact my Muscovy duck is laying eggs and I saw a nest in the corner of the coop. I’m not going to let her start yet but it’s a nice sign of spring. Unlike tomorrow and Friday where they are saying more snow/rain.

Okay, I’m off. More kids from the bus so better go met it. Take care everyone and thank you for listening to my moaning. Have a blessed and relaxing evening.
