Okay, so the New Year brought a lot of positive feelings and anticipation of healthy pursuits. Now the reality sets in...my muscles hurt, I have pain where I didn't even know I had parts! The early mornings are no longer met with a leisurely cup of coffee but with a "get your hiking shoes on, we have to go" from my husband. (I'm not so sure I like him anymore.) I'm sure I had an old army injury (although I was never in the military) cause it really does bother me now. My back hurts, I have blisters on my feet, bruises on my legs and I tend to smell more like a men's gym bag than a sexy, middle-aged lady. I didn't even know I had sweat glands. Somehow I always thought I was born without any. There aren't enough showers in a day to counteract the effects of the workouts the old boy puts me through. Did I mention that he's beginning to resemble Simon Cowell from American Idol...never satisfied with the effort expended, always wants more. Well, I was just checking in, it's my free day so I'm going back to bed. If I survive I'll try to post more later this week. For now my fingers still work, but I'm sure he will think of some exercise that will take care of that.
