This week has been extremely busy! I have been working 8:30-5:30 all week, so I don’t even get home until after 6:30pm. It is also the week I started with my run coach, so I have been pushing my body to limits I wasn’t even aware I had. I’ve been dragging myself out of bed at 4:30am to get my run in before work, then after work I have been doing a second workout since I didn’t have enough time or energy to do it after my morning run. I have to say though, even though I’ve been sore, I have had the most energy and the least amount of anxiety in weeks! (Granted, I did just get married and that was stressful.)
I have also been eating much healthier and drinking more fluids, but here is the kicker, this week not only did I start my new training, I also got a nasty cold! Matt got sick too and he left work early Monday and called in Tuesday because he was so miserable. I stuck it out and went to work but mine didn’t get really bad until Thursday and Friday I was just miserable. I didn’t let my cold stop my workouts nor did I let it slow me down.
After work on Wednesday I called Matt to tell him I was making grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner (since we are both sick). He reminded me for the umpteenth time that he was looking at getting a new lawnmower and he’d be home around 8. Well I ate my dinner, did my second workout and by time I was done with that, Matt had come home. He told me “I didn’t buy the lawnmower, but I did buy something else,” and handed me two folders. WE CLOSED ON OUR LAND!!!! Finally after YEARS of trying to buy this land, it was officially ours! I cried! (Let’s be real, I cry at everything.) The land is 13.3 acres, 10 of it is being farmed. It needs A LOT of work, which will be coming up in future posts!
