It was a loooong weekend! On Saturday, dh decided that it was a yard work day. UGH
So, being the crazy person that I am I decided to tackle a portion of the yard that was overrun with Sweet Williams, Ivy, and some really ugly weeds!
It didn't look like that much when we started. (by we I mean me with my 9yodd, my 6yodd, and my 3yodd watching and fighting with each other) I started at about 9am and we(I mean me) around 12pm.
Oh my goodness! I had so many spiders and bugs crawling all over me that I could feel them hours later. EEWW I was drenched in sweat and I smelled. Not the pretty smell that girls are supposed to have, no I mean the yucky smell of rolling around in the dirt and not bathing. It was bad!
I didn't really think too much of the work until Sunday morning around 10:45. That is when the soreness started setting in. I sat down and the then when I wanted to get up, I couldn't straighten up all the way. My hamstrings were so tight that I almost thought I had pulled a muscle!
It didn't get any better as the day progressed. In fact, every time I sat down and then tried to get up, it was worse. So what did I do? I walked 1-3/4miles on the treadmill. What was I thinking? Oh yeah, I was thinking that the breakfast I had at McD's that morning was making my thighs and hind end get bigger and bigger while I sat there.
By the time Monday morning rolled around I was miserable. I could hardly walk and sitting down in a chair was so painful! The chair hit my hamstrings at the sorest point possible. Monday evening was the worst of all. I was no longer able to reach over and touch my toes without being in severe pain.
I was a little panicked because I have ALWAYS been able to touch my toes. Now just sitting on the floor caused me pain.
Today is a little better. However, when I did the Pilates video this morning I had to do the 'modified' version that looks like a dead cockroach! And even that hurt!!!
We will see what a difference there is tomorrow!
