today after dropping the bean at school i pulled all the flowers i bought on sunday back out of the garage and into the sun. last night we were supposed to get a frost so i had pulled them all in and covered them for protection. now i had to pull them all back out and give them a drink of water. then i watered my hanging plants on the front porch and then i put the pea down for her nap. at that point i had to decide, to shred or not to shred?
usually the pea will only sleep in her crib for about 30 minutes and then she is up and i put her in the wrap and bounce on my ball and let her finish her nap on my chest. she loves it, i don’t mind, it works for us. but that means i can either shred or shower but not both. yesterday i shredded and no shower. kind of stinky but i was just staying home post shred and the kids don’t mind. so, today i decided a shower might be nice.
i did shred on saturday, sunday and monday. my first time doing three consecutive days since i started on may first. on sunday i made the bold leap up to level 2. i have to tell you though, i fear i am losing points for skimping on the hand weights. i was bopping around the interwebs today and i saw this post in which a shredder is “reshredding” and talking about it. the blogger says the original time shredding 3lb hand weights were used and now reshredding 5lb hand weights are used. yeah, i am deeply shamed. i am all proud that i moved from my 10 oz soup cans up to my 15.5 oz cans of beans. i think i might need to drag my sorry self back down to the basement to find the dreaded 3lb hand weights and suck it up.
so, i moved up to level 2 but it could be argued that i have been cheating.
whatever. i am still busting my butt and feeling like it matters so please do not let me fall into the black hole of self doubt just because my hand weights are lame. stop yourself woowoo. don’t go there.
today when i chose the shower i actually felt, for the first time since i started this, like i would miss the workout. maybe that is cause i still thought i’d be lifting beans but its still true. i think this is a sign of positive change. today i am clean and shiny but if the night goes well enough i plan to shred tomorrow – holding onto beans or almond butter jars or maybe real hand weights – to the best of my current ability.
while i was writing this the pea woke up from the crib portion of her nap and moved into the wrap portion for a short snooze. now she is up from that and tilting her sweet head back to look up at me. she is telling me something:
she loves this. she could go on and on. she finally has taught me how to speak.
it is time to g pick up the bean at preschool then rush home for lunch then rush out to the chiropractor then rush home for the pea’s second nap. if you read my blog and you have fallen asleep out of the boredom of this post i am deeply sorry. if i think of anything more interesting to say i will put it up later today and pull this pile of dust.
otherwise, see ya people. i maybe be boring today but i am clean and feeling rather peaceful. go figure.
