Now that I have started to get feeling back in my hands and arms, I can start writing my blog again. You don’t realize how really darn old you are until you move a bunch of furniture and boxes!
I’m now able to feed myself with silverware again — for the last few days, I’ve only been able to stuff my face with whatever my hands and arms had the strength to pick up — thank goodness ice cream is so lightweight!
I’m hoping that by tomorrow my legs will stop feeling so rubbery – I feel like I have run a marathon carrying 80 pound ankle weights. I have never actually run a marathon – but I’ve watched lots of episodes of the Biggest Loser and I’m pretty sure I know how it works! I do feel like Jillian has been beating me up for a couple of days – which is why it was so important to make sure I ate lots of ice cream to keep my strength and stamina at peak levels!
In a couple of days I should be able to start walking upright again or at least without listing to one side like a badly damaged ship. I will say that I am doing better than Pat who looks like the Tower of Pisa with legs! Luckily, I can still eat ice cream in this position.
I am definitely on the road to recovery from all of the heavy lifting and moving we did this weekend. I worked really hard – and apparently I have built a lot of muscle because the scale says I gained 5 pounds!
