Greetings Friends. My Spirits are very good. My Energy level could be much better.
Well I have been procrastinating putting up Christmas decorations. I did put some up a couple of weeks ago with the tree, but I did not finish all the other decorations such as exterior lights and the dinning room table among other things.
I got my BUTT up into the attic and retrieved the rest of the decorations. I got my ladder and started to put things into place outside first before it got dark. I did not put all the lights that I have in the recent past, but I did put out a lot. I then decorated the dinning area and some more decorations in the living area.
Everything came out really nice. My dear wife (DW) and I actually sat in the living area listen to some Christmas music and talked for a good while. It was nice. We have not done that in some time. Btw I did some Christmas shopping on my way home from work.
So what do I have to complain about? Everything seems to be really nice and positive........ right?? Well yes and no. OK here we go: This is not really a complaint. It is an observation.
First: I had to go up into the attic to get the decorations and lights. My ceilings are sort of high. I want to guess at least 12 feet or more. I went up and down the attic ladder several times. I found myself struggling a little. I could feel my legs shake a little as I came down the ladder. The strength just was not there.
Second: I whole body feels like crap. I am sore beyond belief. I only worked for about three hours inside and out and I feel really sore especially my lower back. I am not happy with this at all.
Third: .... is there a third? I guess not. I am just disappointed. This just reinforces my idea of exercising. I was not going to post at all tonight. Y'all just don't know how worn out I am. Does this have to do with my diet? No. I contribute this to my age and inactivity.
Look-it: I can't just let myself go down the drain. I really need to get motivated and start some kind of exercise. I am so disappointed right now. OK I will get over this and life will go on. I am still having a hard time getting into gear and starting a exercise regiment. I really want to start to lift weights. I want to gain back some strength that I have lost.
Am I crazy? Crazy like a Fox!!! OK I am sure just about no one knows that little silly phrase. That's OK I will survive.
Have a Healthy Day my Friends and Family. Battle On!!!
