Taking on the Hills

Moving and organizing a house should count as a workout. Lifting, twisting, carrying, up and down the stairs. I sweat more moving than I do on my walks. So I ended up not at the gym yesterday. I used my break to go to my old house and pack up my Rogue again. I packed up 2 bins of books, a box of random stuff, lots of clothes and a bookcase. I couldn’t stuff more in since I also had to fit my child when I picked her up from camp. So that is really two 30 minute workouts once unpacking is added in. 🙂

I’ve gone about 24 hours without ankle pain. I’m going to go on one of my hilly walks around the block for lunch today. If it doesn’t like the first hill, then I’ll just turn and go back. Hills are more challenging than stairs, I believe. At least my landing is level on stairs. We’ll see. I’m not pushing it, but I’m not going to stay idle.

And! I ordered a reward for me. After browsing Birchbox once I opened my goodies I found a perfume. I love perfume, but seldom buy it since it is really expensive (when you have good taste). So, I ordered this one…

Harvey Prince Eau Flirt – Lavender Pumpkin

That’s right! Lavender Pumpkin! It is said to be sweet and spicy. Floral and pumpkin spice sound exciting to me. I cannot wait to get my nose on this. I will not open it until I reach my first goal weight though. I am going to leave it on my dresser with a note to me. It’ll be my daily reminder.

    • I was thinking about calling in favors from friends. I have helped a whole lot of them move over the years. However, I know that it is a tremendous pain in the butt and I don’t really want to put any of them through that. It is a dilemma.

      • If you’ve helped them then ignore your guilt and ask. If they say no (for good reason) respect it and move on. People like us tend to give and give and never ask anything in return. Now it is your turn to be a tiny bit selfish
