The long and winding road to fitness, day 82

Holy moly..I am so tired tonight.  Went in to work at six this morning and left at six this evening.   I am already starting to feel the stress from work and it’s not even close to Christmas time yet.  I’m not sure how much worse the stress will get the closer we get to the holidays.

I did walk and do strength training (upper body) this morning, then ran around like crazy all day at work.  My eating was good until I got home tonight…then I had pizza…what?  How can this be?  I was feeling so frustrated with how things are going that I tried to comfort myself with one of my favorite foods…and we all know how well that works!  The stress is still there and now I feel full and disappointed in myself.  And the thing is, I knew this was how I would feel before I ever took that first bite…

I’ve been doing a lot of stretching and range of motion exercises for my shoulder.  I don’t know if it’s helped yet or not, but it’s definitely not making it worse.  I have a doctor’s appointment in a little over a week and a half, so maybe we can figure something out then.  Of course, I’m sure that hauling wood pallets to the dumpster after a truck doesn’t do anything to lessen the pain either.  And the thing is, we have guys working there, but somehow I end up dragging those things through the back parking lot.  Ah well…what are you going to do?  Can’t leave them on the loading dock.

Well, sorry that I’m such a Debbie downer tonight…not sure if it’s the pain or the exhaustion talking.  I’m thinking a good night’s sleep would do wonders for me and for my mood.

  1. You throw wooden pallets away? It’s too bad you aren’t in Kansas. If you left them on the loading dock, we’d haul them home and build stuff. I can’t believe you throw them away!!!

    Get some rest, Patti! Hope you sleep well 🙂

    • Well, we just stack them by the dumpster and some guy comes by and picks them up…not sure what he does with them…sometimes some of the people I work with will take them home. One of the women I work with uses them in her barn and has also built a shed for her sheep with them…so I guess the building things with wooden pallets is universal, at least in the midwest! I’ve thought about using them to build raised garden beds…
